An overview about cutting edge technologies such as plug-in development, WEB 2.0, And DB Management was presented to the participants.

The objective was to introduce these technologies to the students with hands-on Lab sessions that would help students in getting across the ideas of managing data base and developing plug-ins. A session on WEB 2.0 was held in the view that it is more than a set of ‘cool’ and new technologies and services. Topics such as direct or indirect reflections of the power of the network; the strange effects and topologies at the micro and macro level that a billion Internet users produce were also discussed.

Certificates were distributed to the participants at the end of the program.
