Bhubaneswar:24/5/18; Udacity, the global lifelong learning platform, made the dreams of young Bhubaneswar resident and Udacity Nanodegree student come true by sending him to attend Google’s annual developer conference, Google I/O 2018, held in Mountain View, early this month.
SoumyaRanjan Behera had enrolled for Udacity Front-End Web Developer courses under the Google-Udacity Scholarship for Front End Developers in India and was invited to attend the event through the scholarship program.
For the 19-year old B. Tech student Soumya, being present amongst the world’s best developers for these platforms was an educational and inspirational experience.
As a student of Computer Science at Silicon Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar, travelling to be a part of Google I/O was only possible due to his studies at Udacity.
The annual Google I/O conference showcases technical in-depth sessions focused on building web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open source platforms such as Android, Chrome and Chrome OS, APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more. This year, Google unveiled its AI-driven assistant’s ability to pass the Turing Test, making this a historical moment for the development of AI.
For this young Bhubaneshwar resident, travelling all the way to California to witness this landmark moment was nothing short of a life-changing moment.
