Auriga brings Linux Kernel to India
Auriga continues to train India’s IT force by presenting two new training courses in India in association with the International Institute of Information Technology (I2IT). Last year Auriga announced its first training initiative in India: in cooperation with I2IT, Auriga provided the “Linux Kernel Programming” course. The training became a unique example of software engineering knowledge exchange between the Russian and Indian IT industries. Following positive feedback from the course participants, Auriga’s leading experts in Linux and embedded systems development presented two further training programs on “Linux Kernel Programming Fundamentals” and “Advanced Linux Kernel Programming” early in December this year. The 10-day training event was held at the I2IT Campus, Pune, India and was attended by representatives from major Indian IT companies, including Cognizant Technology Solutions, Tata Consulting Services, Samsung India, and others. Both training courses were highly praised by the participants for their depth, quality, and the right balance between theory and practice. The training attendees particularly appreciated the professionalism, competency, and teaching methodology of Auriga’s trainers. Here are some examples of feedbacks Auriga received from the course participants:
- “Every point of the course is useful “ - Cognizant Technology Solutions
- “Good balance of theory and hands-on” - Persistent Systems
- “Trainers were experienced and ready to help” - Samsung India.
Auriga’s President represents Russian IT in India
In November, Alexis Sukharev participated in a unique event organized in Hyderabad, India by Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley, and Tata Consultancy Services. “Innovation in Emerging Economies: China India Russia 2007” became a premier convention that placed in sharp focus the emerging picture of China, India, and Russia, as the potential innovation powerhouses that can tip the technology balance in the near future. Dr. Sukharev, invited to speak on behalf of the Russian IT industry, presented a comprehensive overview of the current Russian IT industry trends and capabilities, and shared his view on how the Russian IT will develop in the emerging global environment. The Russian IT and outsourcing industry gained a lot of attention from the event attendees, which resulted in plans to hold next year’s convention in Russia.
