Digital Citizenship Celebration in Odisha on Community Day 2015

What could be more enjoyable than teaching technology to the young generation?

Children are our greatest treasure. They are our future. – Nelson Mandela

On the occasion of “Community Day 2015 (Sep 19, 2015)”, “Digital Citizenship” program kick started in India. This program is initiated by “India Microsoft MVP Community” with the help of MVPs all over the country.

Why this?

We in the community, do realize that, our young guns are still very far from getting basic facilities to explore internet and computer science. We have seen many videos on vision 2020 and how the world surrounding us going to change, but are we going to even understand how this is going to happen. If our young minds are not getting chance to touch and feel the computer or gadgets, then how come we see something which would change our life.

Don’t even think, the children are not interested to learn. I will bet on this. We have already seen the passion, enthusiasm and eagerness to learn computer science and its applications among those youth, who are always ignored.

The Driving Force

I have started my techie career in Mindfire Solutions and in these four years, I have learned a lot how to give my best in office as well as to share my knowledge and give that back to the society. Every Mindfirean is encouraged to work for technical communities, which defines, Mindfire has a unique work culture and ethics.

Planning

So, Microsoft Dev Community (MSDC) Odisha took this initiative very seriously to educate and spread the awareness on computers and technology to the citizens of Odisha. This is why this community was started in December 2014.

MSDC Presents Community Day 2015

MSDC Presents Community Day 2015

A group of MSDCians including me planned to visit two schools in one day that is 19th Sept 2015. The schools are situated in my district, “Nayagarh“. One is “NAC High School” and the other one is “Sri Aurobindo Integral High School”.

Visit to Schools prior to the Event Day

Before few days of the event, I visited the schools and interacted with children from different classes (7th to 10th) to check their interest on the event. I was overwhelmed with joy, when I found that they are so delighted to see someone who talks to them on computers or gadgets or robots. They asked me many question. Even I hijacked one class that day, after they pulled me to the classroom again to tell them something on computers and how it operates.

I was moved by the fact that my parents have made me so able, for which today I am standing tall and explaining computers to small kids, where I studied for five years. My teachers gave me immense support to conduct this workshop on 19th.

The Event Day

Alright, now everything is setup, children are ready, teachers are ready, so are the MSDC guys.

First School – NAC High School Nayagarh

The day has finally come. We (ten guys) traveled from Bhubaneswar to Nayagarh, which is almost 2 hours journey. After reaching, we could not believe our eyes, when we saw attendance of 100 instead of expected count of 50 in NAC High School. My friends from Nayagarh really worked hard to set up everything from arranging tables, chairs to setting up the projectors and electricity in that conference hall.

Importance of Education

We are all set now. Before some tech talks, Suvendu Giri (Co-Founder MSDC Odisha and Software Engineer, ESSPL) motivated the gathering by some inspirational videos thereby illustrated the importance of education and computer. I helped him a bit here.

Computer Basics

Okay, let’s talk some technology. Of course, we have to start from basics that is “Computer Funda !!! How Computer Works?”. Mr. Durga Charan Ojha, who is a System Administrator in Mindfire started teaching this and got many questions in return. He was able to answer every question. One interesting question was “Why this computer took birth?” Now ask this to yourself, if you want to answer, please feel free to comment below this post !!!

Durga showed mother boards to the students and Prayash Mohapatra (3rd year, B.Tech, CET) also helped him in showing a micro computer and explained to them about its usage.

Internet

Sohel Wahid (B.Tech, KIIT) then started his session giving a brief idea on the internet and how it is so powerful in today’s world. Students explored the power of internet and how that can be helpful in their studies.

Virus

The next session was on Virus, which was delivered by Ariz Eqbal (B.Tech, KIIT), to which, every student find interesting, learned a few basic things about Virus and clarified doubts.

Robotics

Last, but not the least, the most interesting topic “Robotics” was presented by Rajesh Kumar Sahoo (B.Tech, KIIT). He was not only able to grab the attention of the children, but also amazed by the fact that most of them were really wanted to build robots after learning from him.

Goodies

Now this is the prize distribution time. We have listed few students who answered the questions we asked in between sessions. Professor Dr. Gobinda Chandra Dash (Nayagarh Autonomous College) and Mr. Pradip Kumar Dakua (Teacher Geography, NAC High School) were the dignitaries who distributed the prizes and congratulated them for their passion.

Second School – Sri Aurobindo Integral High School, Nayagarh

Then we continued our journey of knowledge to the second school “Sri Aurobindo Integral High School”.

These guys are more excited than we imagined. Suvendu and me again started with our motivation talks and give them a hint about what is going to happen, next.

Prayash Mohapatra (B.Tech, CET) sat in between the students and started playing a game. Before the students could make something in their mind, Prayash very cleverly introduced them to the world of computer programming. And, that through a game, really!!! Yes, you heard that right.

Rajesh again operated a small robot in front of them. He showed how our lifestyle would be in a smart house after few years through a video. That was really interesting.

Effect

  • More schools taking interest to conduct this kind of event.
  • Students are asking to organize at least once in every month in their school.
  • We are continuously getting calls from students who ask doubt in computers.
  • Sasaka Prasasaka on Monday, 28th September, published one news on our event.

Roadmap

We are already planning to take this to as many schools as we can in Odisha. Not only schools, but we will also educate the citizens of every edge at least how to operate a smart phone.

Time to Think!!!

The response really inspired us and opened our eyes. We should not just sit for 8-10 hours in office and work and come back home with a good salary, rather we should share our knowledge in society which once fed and educated us. Don’t be selfish after getting all the help from your surrounding. If you work for you and your family, then what you are giving back to your mother land. Serving to the people, is serving the God, I believe.

Isn’t this a matter to think!!!

If every one of us is determined to go to their own school at least and teach them something you have learned over the years, then illiteracy will only be a word in dictionary. Possible, right!!! If you want to contribute, please start. If you want to join us, please feel free to contact us and tell us how you can bring the change in Odisha.

Sharing is caring.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others” ‪- Mahatma Gandhi‬

Vote of Thanks

I would, personally, like to thank everyone, who was a part of this event and contributed their time and knowledge towards the community.

  • My teachers, without whose guidance, this event was not possible. They gave us confidence, which boosted us up.
  • Microsoft and India Mentor supported us in planning and executing the event successfully.
  • Thanks to Mr. Biplab Paul (Audience Evangelism Manager, India Communities) and Mr. Gandharv Rawat (Community Support Lead, India Communities) for initiating this program in India.
  • It would be my mistake if I don’t congratulate the MSDC Team, who did all the hard work and executed, this program. Team members include all the speakers and Pravasini Sahoo, Rojalin Sahoo, Suraj Sahoo, Nirmal Hota, Atul Das, Alok Bhanja, Manash Pritam, Dillip Das, Rakesh Pradhan, Biswajit Nayak.

South Asia MVP Open Day 2015

South Asia MVP Open Day Highlights

South Asia MVP Open Day Highlights

Let me tell you one of the most mysterious thing about the MVP Open Day, which was the venue. We all tried very hard to find out the exact location of the resort. Some of us even tricked the cabby to get the information, but the organizers were way cleverer than we thought.

Just for a quick introduction on MVP Open Day…

It is is an annual regional MVP gathering to learn, connect and share experiences. We, all MVPs from South Asia, unite at one place to celebrate the “Joy of Sharing“.

So, after some time, we reached our so called “secret venue”, which was “Royal Orchid Resort at Yelahanka“. We quickly checked in and freshened up, because there were many interesting stuff already lined up for us, as you can imagine from the agenda given below.

South Asia MVP Open Day Agenda

South Asia MVP Open Day Agenda

Not getting anything from the Agenda, right !!! The same happened with us too. Keep reading, you will get know everything.

Agenda was beautifully designed, which is a combination of Technical as well as Non-Technical Sessions along with different activities and games.

Day 1 …

… started with the Introduction to MVP Program and its benefits, delivered by Mayumi Suzuki, Allen Li, Biplab Paul and Gandharv Rawat, who are our MVP Community Leads and Managers. They answered all our queries by giving us the real insight and flavour of this Program.

MVP Program Overview

The next presenter was Dr. Nitin Paranjape, who demonstrated Office 365. We discovered many cool, useful and productive features, which we don’t really use.

One of the best quotes he made is…

“While working with any Product or Software, think whether you are helping it or that is helping you.”

This is a very powerful sentence indeed. The software is designed with all features to make our job fast and perfect, but most of the time, we try to do in our own way, ignoring all the features of the software.

The day then followed by sessions on Visual Studio, Office Tools and Azure by fellow MVP, Microsoft Program Managers and Experts. These sessions were informative as they addressed our daily life issues, we face with the Microsoft Products and Platforms.

How about some Game after so much of tech discussion?

Yes, you heard that right. “Paint Ball” and “Archery” were the next big things in the agenda. We formed teams among us and played the game so passionately.

Finally, we had a party with dinner in the evening. All the us appeared with traditional attire, which fill the place with tranquility. This was the time, when we get to know each other, chit chatted on different tech and non-tech things.

Pottery was a worth sight during the party. You can see how Mayumi is trying to build something.

On the whole, the setup mimicked “India’s Village“, where we were the Villagers. Very innovative and unique.

Day 2 …

… started with Yoga classes by MVP Vijay Agarwal.

Yoga Instructed by MVP Vijay Agarwal

Yoga, seriously !!!!

Yes, this was totally unpredicted. We were just told that to come to the lawn at 6 AM in the morning. Our Yoga Guru taught us some simple exercises, which we should work out everyday in order to stay fit in this world of technology.

Everyone was feeling so energetic after the Yoga class that eventually kept us attentive the whole day.

The first session of the day was very influential. As MVPs, we should lead the community by influencing people to work together with collaboration. We should take steps towards building those qualities by implementing the strategies explained by Mr. Sumit Arora, Director, Microsoft India IGTSC, in his presentation.

Who had imagined, that the next few hours to follow after this, would make us so involved and engaged? Pramila Matthew took the session on building leadership qualities, thereby inspiring us, not to think about the past or future, but to always live in the present with 100% concentration on the work we do.

Leadership Qualities by Pramila Matthew

She assigned some excellent activities to us, which we performed in groups. One of them was “Human Machine“.

Well, you can imagine the level of enjoyment we had, from the pictures below. MVPs turned into Watch, Washing Machine, Toaster etc.

Below one is the activity of presenting a model, which would help Microsoft to stay ahead of the curve. Many hidden, innovative and interesting ideas were projected on the floor. I hope, Microsoft would implement those in near future.

Then, we were all set for some tech discussions on Web Application Performance by Tulika, which is followed by Troubleshooting Azure Websites by Puneet and Security Measures in Windows 10 by Pradeep.

Designing is the most important part of a Application, because that is what user would see and create impression about it. We explored some of the Best-practices of Application Design, which was delivered by Mr. Amar from Microsoft Hyderabad.

Who can forget the late night talk on Xamarin by MVP Mayur and MVP Nishant. The talk was really very crisp and to the point, which explained us the features of Xamarin.

Sessions Collage

It was around 1 AM at that time, when everything finished. Next day around 10 AM, we checked out of the Resort and returned back to our places. But, the memories we carried from the Open Day Event is precious and will stay forever.

We are just going away for few months, before the next Open Day.

I would like to thank Mr. Biplab Paul (Community Program Manager), Mr. Gandharv Rawat (Community Support Lead) for designing such a captivating agenda, which included tech, non-tech activities and games. The communications they made before the event about the Agenda, Venue, Sessions and Goodies excited us to be a part of those two unforgettable days of this year.

Top Features of ASP.NET vNext

Of course, as the name suggests, it is the upcoming version of ASP.NET.

At a Glance…

The next version of ASP.NET has been redesigned from the ground up. It has been designed to provide you with a lean and composable .NET stack for building modern cloud-based apps. The Applications will be faster as well as modular and consume less memory. .NET vNext is the next major release of .NET Framework. .NET vNext will have a cloud optimized mode, which will have a smaller clone of the Framework as compared to the full .NET Framework. ASP.NET vNext will build on .NET vNext.

Overview of ASP.NET vNext

Overview of ASP.NET vNext


Let’s explore some of the features of ASP.NET vNext.

No more System.Web !!!

Could you imagine ASP.NET without System.Web.dll !!! Yes, it’s happening now in the new Version. This dll makes the .NET applications slower and also consumes higher memory. Therefore, there’s no Web Forms in vNext, but Web Form development will continue to be supported in Visual Studio. MVC, Web API and Web Pages have been merged into one framework, called MVC 6. This will follow common programming approach between all these three i.e. a single programming model for Web sites and services. ASP.NET vNext includes new cloud-optimized versions of MVC, Web API, Web Pages, SignalR, and Entity Framework.

First Class Citizen is NuGet

Microsoft’s new strategy is…

“mobile-first, cloud-first”

As a result, the vNext Apps can use a cloud-optimized runtime and subset of the .NET Framework. You will be astonished by the fact, this subset of the framework is about 11 megabytes in size compared to 200 megabytes for the full framework. This is because the .NET Framework is composed of NuGet Packages.
Can you guess what I am going to write next? Yes / no !!! Okay, let me tell you. As the Cloud Optimized Framework is just a composition of NuGet packages, so control is with you. You can select and add the NuGet package, that is necessary for your Application. No need to have the whole Framework added to the App, while you are not even using 10% of it. No unnecessary memory, disk space, loading time, etc. For instance, if your App implements Dependency Injection, then include it, otherwise not.

New Development Experience

Time Elapsed Shown on the Go

Now, in Visual Studio, you can see how much time a particular method or code line takes to execute.

Time Elapsed in Visual Studio

Time Elapsed in Visual Studio

Save and Refresh, no Build

Change code files, don’t build again. Go to browser and refresh. Will it work? Answer is Yes, with vNext. This is a very interesting and time saving feature. As a developer, we know the pain of building the App again and again for any simple change. Now, in vNext, we don’t have to. This is the power of new Open Source Roslyn compiler, which compiles code dynamically. You can even use Notepad or any Text Editor to directly edit the files and just save to see the change. That means we can now build ASP.NET Web Apps without Visual Studio. But Visual Studio provides the best development experience. See the video below to see how this works.

Even, you can now edit code on the go using Visual Studio Online (“Monaco”).

Update Code in vNext

Update Code in vNext

Open Source, Cross Platform

As I mentioned that, we can build projects without Visual Studio, this implies that .NET vNext is open source and cross platform. It can run on Mono, on Mac and Linux. Everything is available at .NET Foundation and Github. You can Follow and Contribute.

vNext Cross Platform

vNext Cross Platform

Dependency Injection

Dependency Injection is built into vNext. All of the vNext components like MVC, Web API, SignalR, Entity Framework and Identity will use the same Dependency Injection.

Side by Side Deployment

Framework is with you, so forget System Admin !!!

For upgrading your App to the latest Framework, you always request your System Administrator or Network guy to install the new Framework, so that you can consume that. In the next generation of .NET world, no need to do that. Framework itself comes as NuGet Package and gets included to the project you create. Microsoft would deliver updates for the package and your App can directly get the latest Framework changes. That also means, you can have multiples Apps on a Server, running different .NET Frameworks. Isn’t it interesting !!!

Application is insulated from Server’s Framework Changes

Application on the Production Server would not have any deployment issues further, as it won’t be affected by Server’s Framework patch level. That is because, the Application itself has the NuGet Package of certain Framework level attached with it. Even if the Framework on Server changes, it cannot affect the Applications.

But where to start?

There are many more life changing things coming in this new version. Below are the resources you can refer to explore more.

Join Hands with the Team

If you have any questions, suggestions, then you can directly work with the team. Below are the platforms you can use to use.

[Update on 4th April]
My best birthday Gift on 4th April by my CEO Mr. Chinmoy Panda. He narrates my story in his own words. Celebrating Awesomeness

Be awesome. Be Tadit.

[Blog Continues]
Thank God, I was not fooled on April 1. 🙂

I am really happy to announce that I have been awarded as one of the “Most Valuable Professionals” in ASP.NET/IIS category. This is the very first time I am getting awarded by Microsoft for my Technical Community Activities.

What is Microsoft MVP?

Answer : Click here to know more.

The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is our way of saying thank you to exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others. It is part of Microsoft’s commitment to supporting and enriching technical communities. Even before the rises of the Internet and social media, people have come together to willingly offer their ideas and best practices in technical communities.

My Journey So far…

My journey started on 11 July 2011, when I joined Mindfire Solutions. I was passionate for .NET Technologies during my Engineering days and fortunately I got a place in .NET Team after the training sessions.

I made many friends and some are indeed very special to me. They always encourage me for Community Activities and eventually I come to know about Code Project Community. Code Project is an awesome place to write Articles, Tips and Question Answer Activities. So, I went on answering the Questions first, then I gradually tried my hand on Articles and Tips. I got a very good response and votes from the viewers. The CodeProjectians always boost me for my work. I also started writing Blogs. Whenever I get time, I always look at the groups on Facebook and try to answer their queries. Twitter helped me to promote my writings all over the world. Tweeting good Programming resources is something I do regularly. My Reputation Manager had enough faith on me to give me the Moderation work for Dynamics CRM Team Blog.

The Teams I have worked for in my company have taught me many useful tricks to tackle problems on the fly. My previous .NET team was amazing, disciplined and always believe in fun filled workplace. My current Dynamics CRM Team has a bunch of Geeks, who are hard working and always deliver work on time. These champs taught me how to have patience in everything I do.

Then a special moment came !!! 1st January 2014, I got awarded as a Code Project MVP, which strengthened my chances for Microsoft MVP Award. My happiness knew no bounds. Then I worked harder than before.

Finally, on the April Fool’s Day (6:57 PM IST), I got the mail from Biplab that I have been awarded. I was speechless !!!

Most common question now: How do you manage your time !!!

I am just crazy !!!

It makes you excited for the next question, when somebody appreciates the solution, which you have just answered. Try sometime, you will feel better for sure. Read below to know how mad I am.

  • Sleepless nights (not always, if I had replies on my answers or if somebody is waiting for my reply).
  • Working on weekends.
  • Answering questions while sitting at back seat of my friend’s bike.
  • Immensely waiting for the network on my iPad to come at my native place, so that I can just answer one question.
  • Publish the code while working at office and in between the publish operation, answer one question.

There are many other situations, which can’t be described here !!! 🙂

I would like to dedicate this to my…

Grand Father (Ganeswar Tripathy). His love and blessings always take me step by step towards success. All is for you, I miss you. 😦 😦

I would like to thank…

:: Biplab Paul (Community Program Manager, MVP Award Program – South Asia)- for his constant support and encouragement.
:: Siddharth Rout (Microsoft MVP) – This guys listened to all my stupid queries and answered them with patience. He is still busy doing the same for me.
:: Chris Maunder (Co-Founder, CodeProject) – for rebuilding the amazing forum time to time.

What’s Next?

As simple as that !!! Continue what I am doing and learn from my senior MVPs and my MVP lead. Involve myself in online/offline events. Add some more skills to my skill set.

Journey will continue… Bless me and wish me luck.
Thanks for reading, God bless you all !!!

Why ASP.NET is ASP.NET?

Funda

ASP :- Active Server Pages .NET :- .NET FrameworkASP.NET
According to Wiki

ASP.NET is a server-side Web application framework designed for Web development to produce dynamic Web pages. It was developed by Microsoft to allow programmers to build dynamic web sites, web applications and web services. It was first released in January 2002 with version 1.0 of the .NET Framework, and is the successor to Microsoft’s Active Server Pages (ASP) technology.

So, simply, ASP.NET engine alters the aspx file (ASP.NET file extension is aspx), which contains some elements like TextBox, Label etc. and converts them to HTML control at the run time, before sending it to the user (browser).

Research

ASP.NET was a successor to ASP. At initial stage of the release, ASP.NET was called ASP+.
Refer – ASP.NET (ASP+).

ASP.NET (originally called ASP+) is the next generation of Microsoft’s Active
Server Page
(ASP), a feature of their Internet Information Server (IIS).
Both ASP and ASP.NET allow a Web site builder to dynamically build Web pages on the fly by
inserting queries to a relational database in the Web page.

Inference

So, the idea was much transparent. ASP.NET was developed by introducing major enhancement to ASP. With the announcement of .NET Framework, ASP+ was renamed to ASP.NET, just to make it compatible with new .NET Nomenclature.
