Number of students at our school who take computer science and related courses - 1800
A simple quote drove us during designing - “Make it simple yet elegant”. The website had to be brusque, easy to navigate, and utmost important thing was make it completely compatible with different screen sizes to support present trend of increasing internet access from mobile devices.
We took time in deciding the colour scheme to make it eyesome and uniform. We chose to have a navigation bar present at the top of each page so that it was easy for the user to understand the components of website The website has:
1. Home page – Contains a latest news feed, upcoming events section, social network handles, event calendar and a pleasing stream of recent events photographs.
2. Team – It contains details of core, coders, web, media, sponsorship committees
3. Join Us – It allows personages who are keen on joining Amity ACM Student Chapter to know about us and perks of being in ACM with an elaborated guide for the process of enrolling to be an AASC member.
4. Events – Exhibits the event calendar to view upcoming events with a complete archive of the recent events held in Amity ACM Student Chapter.
5. Achievements – A list of the most notable and praiseworthy success stories of our members and their journey whom we a very proud of also with a few extraordinary achievements of Amity ACM Student Chapter itself.
6. Projects – A list of the abstracts of the innovative projects undertaken by our current students. A section where one can navigate to for getting excellent ideas and for ease the section is divided according to field sub-categories.
7. Youth Entrepreneurship – Amity ACM Student Chapter supports one of the major upcoming fields in the world. This section contains a list of all successful start-ups by our own esteemed members who through guidance and nourishment have made their way to glory.
8. Contact us – A list of people to be contacted for any query regarding any aspect of Amity ACM Student Chapter along with their email, phones and LinkedIn ID’s so as to be connected all the time and we can guarantee that it is monitored regularly.
Hard work is done by every single one of our members to make our chapter the best among all, and we chose the website to be the platform which gracefully acknowledges that. We use the website to inform people not only about the achievements of our chapter, but also the achievements of our members separately, because we believe hard work deserves praise.
With the increase in our total members to a record breaking 1700, and paid members to a 100 members we have chosen to further expand the website to increase the functionality, as is being dictated by the demand. We want to add a news feed section which a student can access information about not only the events which are taking place, but also other necessary details regarding placement/internship opportunities and student information. Also we plan on starting a chat service where members can ask direct questions to any one or more of our senior members, and if deemed worthy, the details of which will be publicly shared as a very helpful Q&A section. However extensive testing is required to be done before these two services goes live.
Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.
ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” consistently serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. This installment of RfP is by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald, and Helmut Krcmar. Titled “The DevOps Phenomenon,” this RfP gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming the early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between their software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving a higher level of stability.
