As part of its Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) and in pursuance of its vision and mission of manpower development, the Nigeria Computer Society (NCS), last week, partnered the Centre of Excellence in Software Engineering of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) to organise a week-long seminar with the theme: Hands-On Workshop on Cloud Computing with Open Nebula.

The workshop, which started on August 25, 2014, ended last week Friday. The workshop attracted participants from all sectors of the economy including Project Managers, Solution Architects, Developers, Designers, IT Managers & Senior Managers/Administrators, and IT Professionals.

Others are Web Developers, Network Engineers, IT Consultants/Researchers, IT Industry players, Education Faculty and Staff, Departmental & Units Heads, Government/Public and Private Sectors, Postgraduate students in Computer Science/IT and Business Development Executives/Managers.

Adding to the glamour and success of the workshop was the presence of facilitators from Germany; the erudite scholars Professor Dr Christoph Reich and Dr Thomas Rübsamen of Cloud Research Lab, Hochschule Furtwangen University (University of Applied Science) Furtwangen, Robert-Gerwig-Platz 1, Germany, whose resourceful contributions impacted positively on the participants.

The state of the arts facilities at the Centre of Excellence added a great value to the workshop, just as the organisation expressed its gratitude to Professor Sola Aderounmu, Director of the Centre, who is also the Deputy President of the NCS for his immense contribution to the success of the programme.
In his remark at the event, the President of the Nigeria computer Society, Professor David Adewumi, reiterated the commitment of the NCS to its CSR, by providing the wherewithal for capacity building.

He advised the participants to be serious and hardworking. He enjoined those who are not members of the NCS to apply for membership so as to enjoy the largesse of being a member in the subsequent MOU to be signed with their facilitators from Germany.
