IFO++ : Memoirs of a Successful Event

It has already been a month after “IFO++”; the ICT exhibition held by University of Colombo School of Computing. As I told in one of my previous posts, this was planned and organized with the purpose of celebrating the 25th anniversary of Computer Science higher education at University of Colombo. I’m happy and proud to say, the exhibition was a huge success. It was held during 28th to 30th October at UCSC premises, which provided a novel experience to most of the crowd attended.

The credit of the success should go to all parties involved; undergraduates from all the current batches, former graduates, and of-course the university staff. With the immense dedication and the hard work from all parties, the success was a certain fact.
I’m glad that I've been a part of the group who worked hard and shared the same passion to make this event a success during those tireless days leading to IFO.  Even though this was an ICT and Computer Science exhibition, there were lot to be done and lot to planed for. In the following pictures you might have a glimpse in to the effort spent by our undergraduates.

Finally, everything concluded successfully, leaving behind a great set of memories for all who involved. I hope the pictures will tell a better story than words.

What we want is to, motivate our younger generation to learn IT. Hope we were successful in that aspect.
