An introductory session on web services was conducted at BITS Plianl campus at Hyderabad in association with IEEE on 26th March 2011. The talks introduced the students to XML, WSDL and SOAP and REST styles of services. I have to say that I am impressed with the students who turned up at the event. Some of them are into very interesting projects and it feels great to see them do things over and above the curriculum.

With me were Bhaskar Ghosh and Neil Ghosh who actually delivered the talks and conducted the hands-on lab. Overall, a very pleasant experience. Special thanks to Dr Geetha Deviprasad who made the event possible.

The event is covered in detail at Neil’s blog.
