Students experience at SDC

Avinash Bherulal Kothari

The first two years of engineering were going through with only studies and hanging out with friends but there was nothing that gave a feeling of professionalism as a budding engineer. In the latter half of second year, SDC came into picture. That was the moment when I felt something worthy can be done. SDC provided us an exposure to real life problems faced by the Sameerwadi KIAAR lab. As we say a catalyst is required to speed up the chemical reaction, joining SDC was the catalyst here. SDC gave me the confidence to apply my knowledge to its fullest. The pillars of SDC: Shyamal Ma'am, Kavita Ma'am, Nilambari Ma'am, Mrunali Ma'am and Santosh Sir always helped us throughout our journey. Joining SDC was the start to a chain reaction of us getting into Deep Blue Contest and then getting a year-long internship opportunity with Teach for India. SDC was a big break to my professional career.

About SDC: Well, my experience with SDC (Software Development Cell) was very enriching and also got a great learning platform about how to work in a dedicated team and try to come up with solution for a particular problem.

I also learned about team co-operation and how to optimize a solution to bring out even better results and keep on improving. Also the support we got from all SDC professors was very inspiring and they kept us pushing forward even when we were stuck with difficult problems to find our solutions.

Message for juniors: To juniors I would like to say Do join the SDC because it will not only help you in your programming and logical development but will also help you in understanding the team management and make your learning experience fun and memorable one.

Pradnya Soman

The software development cell in our college was born and was in its primitive form even before we joined the college. Back then, it had no name, no structure and no formal establishment. All it consisted was a group of enthusiastic professors and some really talented and curious students who were our seniors. I remember, when I became a student of KJSIEIT, I always wondered about the next four years of my life, as to how they would be. Would they be just like the ordinary four years of exams, studying, more exams and then graduating? Or will I get to do something really exciting? I wanted to do so much more than just the ordinary. I just didn’t know how.
And then one day in second year, Shyamal ma’am and Kavita ma’am came into our classroom and told us that there was a project; a project from Sameerwadi. And they needed a team of students to work on it; to develop it from scratch. And that was it! I had found my opportunity to do something more; to create something worthwhile.

We used to work after the college hours. I was finally applying my knowledge to reality and creating something new. We understood professionalism. We learned so many new technologies which we had never heard of! Our professors guided us. They helped us learn and showed us the right path when we faltered. And most importantly, they believed in us. I can never truly thank them enough for what they have done for us. Working with so many people in a team, leading them and having an experience like that at such an early stage changed me. It made me so much better than I was. I grew and became more confident. For us it was an experience of a lifetime.

The SDC is something every college should have. And we should be proud and honored that our college has provided us with this unique opportunity. So I encourage my juniors to join the SDC and let it help you grow and build your own self. There is nothing like creating something new and useful. You will be gaining so much knowledge. And teachers are like our parents. They will guide you through everything. You will really be able to creatively apply your knowledge and hone your skills. You will never get an experience like this anywhere outside! You get much more back from SDC than what you can give. Because, as Albert Einstein once said; “The only source of knowledge is experience”.

It is with a great pleasure I write that the first introduction to cloud computing I had got was through the Software Development Cell (SDC), when it did not even have a name. I learned about virtualization, about hypervisors in short about Cloud in my first of experiences as a college student.

At first I was really skeptical as I had zero knowledge about Cloud Computing. But Prof Nilambari Joshi helped us with the concepts and made us comfortable about it. I got most of my hands on Linux system and configuring different applications on it. And finally we created a single VM Open stack. It was a big deal for us as now it was making sense for us what cloud really was.

Talking about this was one of the major factors for me landing at Amazon Web Services as a Cloud Support Associate. And among fresher’s I felt that I had a head start as the concepts were not new for me. Even today my experience with SDC, My experiences at my college K. J. Somaiya Institute of Engineering and Information Technology is helping me do better at AWS.

During my second year of engineering, I realized that I needed to do something where I can use my classroom learnings. Maybe, work on a project with a peer or do an internship. Luckily, that was the time when SDC-KJSIEIT came into existence. I embarked on a journey full of learnings and good experiences with a team of 10 on my life’s first real world project. The project not only helped to me use my classroom learnings and sharpen my technical skills but also supported me in honing my communication skills and time management. It was because of the qualities and the experiences gained here I further took part in various competitions and also managed to get an internship at one of the top NGOs of India. I would like to thank SDC for instilling this confidence in me. I would definitely ask my juniors to join it to improve your technical skills as there are lots of opportunities that will come to your way after this.

Saransh Jain

The journey with my SDC(Software Development Cell) was started as,

In the mid of my 2nd year of engineering, I was asked by my senior teacher, to join SDC to learn and develop some projects from Sameerwadi, located in the State of Karnataka. After few days a team called Software Development Cell (SDC) went to Sameerwadi and brought some amazing projects. Now here comes the real opportunity for me and my friends, as we youth freshers wanted to learn and have some practical knowledge about the real life projects. We all were freshers about the latest upcoming technology and we were told that to join out this team we have to give an interview process. A question came into all of our mind that, what will happen in this interview as we were not having any practical knowledge. But that interview is one of my memorable one as I was asked by my teacher, that although you don't know about the latest technology, but do you have determination to learn out those technology and to have practical knowledge about them?.

Because we (Teachers) are here to help out our KJSIEIT students. And that one supportive statement by our SDC teachers made me and my friends to join the SDC team. It was a great time for all our 14 member team including teachers. We learned how to help out each other, working late night in the college to have discussions on new technology, how should we learn them and implement the same in the given deadline, how to manage timing apart from college hours, the most important one was to solve out the errors at the time of deadline, we even spent our weekends in college to show faith and determination in completing the projects.

We created memories that remind us our those days. The project we made was at its nascent stage, but the time between our hardwork and managing our schedules apart from our academics, college and sports fests to complete out the tasks, we learned and had best experience of our college life. Even the SDC teachers worked with us after our college time, to clear our doubts and helped us in taking the decisions. We always cheer the learning from our SDC team and specially to our beloved principal, who showed a faith in us so that we could get some big projects from Sameerwadi in upcoming years.

A note to our juniors - If you have determination and faith in learning something, and if you want some kind of help or knowldege, our SDC team and SDC teachers are always there to help you out. And this real life experience of working on live projects will always help you in your future life and also in your interview.
