"If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
The world is waging war against an invisible enemy. Do you have an idea that can turn the tide? An idea that, with the right input, you could hone to perfection? Then we have the right platform for you!
We the IEEE PES SBC of Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology bring to you an amalgam of traditional webinars, idea pitching contests and hackathons. We present to you DeCov'20 - The Anti COVID Webinar cum Ideathon.
An informative webinar on “Impact of COVID-19 on Industry: Affected Areas & New Career Opportunities” will be hosted by Mr. Sijo Kuruvillla George. He is the founding CEO of Startup Village and the cofounder of MobMe, the first student startup in the state of Kerala. Besides these he is also a prime consultant to the KSUM. He is referred to as the " Megamind behind the treasure trove in Cochin"and is a major figure in student entrepreneurship.
• Webinar registration is open to all.
• Event registration open to engineering students only (UG/PG).
• Participants can join individually or as teams of 2-4.
• The problem statements for idea pitching will be released after the webinar.
• Participants will have to submit an abstract of less than or equal to 500 words. Design will have points.
• The shortlisted participants will proceed to the finals, where they will have to prepare for an online hackathon (Cisco WebEx) focusing on parameters such as concept, idea, feasibility, marketing strategy, future scope, etc.

What are objects?
Jeff Goodell: Would you explain, in simple terms, exactly what object-oriented software is?
Steve Jobs: Objects are like people. They’re living, breathing things that have knowledge inside them about how to do things and have memory inside them so they can remember things. And rather than interacting with them at a very low level, you interact with them at a very high level of abstraction, like we’re doing right here.
Here’s an example: If I’m your laundry object, you can give me your dirty clothes and send me a message that says, “Can you get my clothes laundered, please.” I happen to know where the best laundry place in San Francisco is. And I speak English, and I have dollars in my pockets. So I go out and hail a taxicab and tell the driver to take me to this place in San Francisco. I go get your clothes laundered, I jump back in the cab, I get back here. I give you your clean clothes and say, “Here are your clean clothes.”
You have no idea how I did that. You have no knowledge of the laundry place. Maybe you speak French, and you can’t even hail a taxi. You can’t pay for one, you don’t have dollars in your pocket. Yet I knew how to do all of that. And you didn’t have to know any of it. All that complexity was hidden inside of me, and we were able to interact at a very high level of abstraction. That’s what objects are. They encapsulate complexity, and the interfaces to that complexity are high level.
This webinar is focussing on learning Git VCS, a distributed version control system for tracking changes during practical software development.
We will be exploring the usage of various git commands, plugins/extensions and branching-models based on real-world contexts.
The session is targetting absolute beginners with minimum or no experience with git, But a mindset to optimize and improve work efficiency and productivity by learning and exploring new tool-chains and strategies is a must!
