How was DSC NSEC involved in the above events?

From organizing to attending — DSC NSEC was everywhere!

DSC NSEC members at WTM IWD 2019 with Manisha Biswas, WTM Kolkata Lead.

DSC NSEC Lead, Anubhav (that’s me!) was a co-organizer in all the above 3 events. Was also a speaker at the TF Dev Summit event and spoke about “Introduction to TensorFlow.JS”.

All the event posters and speaker cards (around 20 of them) were designed by DSC NSEC Core Member — Faiz Alam.

The WTM IWD event was anchored by our member — Rajwrita Nath, who comes with pretty complete notes on everything!

DSC NSEC members were the largest segment of attendees to all the events!

What else did we do this month?

Covered India.

Left: Team Hexato at Jaipur. Right: Team Cognito at Alleppey.

Two teams from the college — Team Hexato and Team Cognito travelled to Jaipur and Alleppey respectively to participate in the Smart India Hackathon Finale. All the team members of both them coincidentally belonged to DSC NSEC (10 in the Core team!).

Team Hexato was also accompanied by Anubhav (again, me!), since he had given much advice (gyaan) to the team on how to get through.

Completed Quests and Gifts given

Several members of DSC NSEC have completed their QwikLabs quests which they received during the GCDC Kolkata Cloud Study Jam on 23rd Feb, organized in collaboration with DSC NSEC.

We gifted a few T-Shirts too to the members who completed the two allotted quests first and wrote a blog about it!

Also gifted our man Vineet his Google AI pendrive filled with Study resources on Machine Learning.

What’s coming?

A lot of exciting stuff is under preparation from us and we will be rolling out everything in good time!

Stay tuned!
