Prerika Jain, a B.Tech in Computer Science from KIET, Ghaziabad had her semester break and she was keen to learn a new skill; however, she was also desperate to get back home as soon as possible. Quite a conundrum! Wasn’t it? Luckily, she shared this with her senior who recommended her online training. She had qualms but got herself enrolled in an Android training. She had never been acquainted with Java before, but the content of the training suggested that it was perfect for a beginner like her. By the end of the training, she had made Calculator and Notepad apps as assignments. After her college started, she also got an opportunity to test the practical applications of her learning. She created a ‘Mutual Book- Sharing’ app for a contest during her college’s technical fest and within a year, she also created an app, Uddeshya, for the social welfare group of her college. Now, she is planning to pursue a career as an app developer.
