Android Apps Development Workshop Report

IEEE BUET Student Branch proudly announces the successful completion of the workshop entitled as “Android Apps Development.” It was organized by IEEE BUET SB along with the support of IEEE Bangladesh Section, with a view to encouraging students to take part in IEEE Mobile Applications Development Competition (IEEEmadC). The workshop was presided over by Shadman Majid, a young, yet prominent Android Apps developer from the department of Computer Science in Engineering in BUET.

The day long workshop, held on March 16, 2017 at Robert Noyce Lab, BUET, was arranged in two sessions. A number of 21 people attended the workshop. At the very beginning, Rakibul Islam Chowdhury, Chairperson of IEEE BUET Student Branch welcomed the students with a welcome speech. Afterwards, Satyaki Banik, Ambassador of IEEE BUET SB in IEEEmadC gave a brief description on the competition and why and how students should participate. He insisted on the focus of the workshop to be encouraging the students to take part in the global event- IEEEmadC.

The morning session lasted for about 4 hours which covered theoretical backgrounds on mobile application development and android. The instructor focused much on the ease of usage of Android as a medium of mobile application development. He also stated dozens of dos and don’ts in development practice. Each and every crucial specification of the Android Studio was mentioned by the instructor. The ending hour of the first session encouraged the participants to start writing codes for their first Android app.

The second session which lasted for 3 hours comprised entirely of hands-on activity on coding an app. The instructor showed the participants how to create a simple user interface, along with layouts and controls in android.

It was not the workshop or the hands-on training that benefitted the participants the most; rather it was the motivation that the instructor conveyed- sharing his own experiences, rises and falls, and most importantly- stories of success.

In the end, all the participants were motivated enough to start their own journey in the world of Android apps development. IEEE BUET SB truly hopes that these participants will participate in IEEEmadC and fulfill the true objective of this workshop.

Announcement of Workshop on PCB Design and Prototyping

It’s time to get your electronic project design off the chalkboard and put it in the real world. Getting your schematic from the computer screen or breadboard to Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is the most important part of manufacturing electronic devices, robotics & embedded systems. Moving to a PCB has a wide range of advantages. It makes the final design robust, durable, dependable and replicable. But that’s not to say getting your final design or product to a PCB is smooth sailing. It’s a frequent headache of an engineer, something that works perfectly on the breadboard won’t work on the PCB. So what is the secret behind PCB design???

IEEE BUET student branch is going to unveil the mystery of PCB design on 22 September 2016.

As a beginner in PCB design, taking his/her first steps, we tend to overlook crucial design decisions when it comes to component placement, routing and designing for testability. What we usually do while designing PCB, is place component whimsically and use innumerable via as a result debugging stage takes much time. There are rules and calculations for every step of the process. But at the end of the day, it would seem more like an “Art” than Engineering. We hope that after successful completion of the workshop, you will master the Art of PCB design.

We will start from the very basics. Getting to know the software and terminology then gradually moving to more complex topics. One important factor of product manufacturing is cost optimization.

So PCB cost can be reduced using optimum number of layers and optimizing size. We will also discuss the stage of prototyping and how to design for testability.
The workshop will be day-long and we will design 3pi line follower type PCB which would be a single layer. The first session will cover basics of PCB design and in the second session, we will get to apply the theory on a hands-on design project.

About the team:
Registration will be in Teams. Each team must consist of 2 participants. Each team has to bring a laptop, power adapter, multi-plug and a good mouse is a must.

Registration Fee:
For IEEE members: 300 BDT per person
For non-IEEE members: 500 BDT per person
Registration Fee payment will be in teams according to the above criteria. After selection procedure you’ll be notified to pay the fee.
