Path to a steady income

Published

on

Today in Sri Lanka a trainee in this field draws an average salary of Rs 15,000 – 35,000 and after an year if he / she is updated with the current technology trends , he / she may be able to draw a salary in the region of Rs 150,000 .

But many in Sri Lanka are not aware that there are better opportunities in this field and the only thing needed is dedication and commitment to be a creative entrepreneur.

With the introduction of the computer, the speed of communication has increased drastically . It’s not necessary to possess expensive equipment such as printing machines / transformers or complex networks such as postal / courier networks, but a person with a computer or a smart phone has the opportunity to dessiminate information at a very high speed to anywhere in the world .

This was also changed in an unimaginable way when fb was introduced to the world in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg and his friends while he was an undergraduate at Harward University. The introduction of other social media networks such as you tube in 2005 , instagram and pintrest in 2010 also facilitated the people to have a more speedy & comfortable communication system all over the world .

It is a common factor that many spend a considerable time with social media networks and waste resources such as time , money and do not gain much when compared to the resources that they spent. It is very sad to note that the facilities available in our country do not support much to educate people on how they can earn through social networking systems .

As such Auxx Me Network Pvt Ltd and POLYMATH College Pvt Ltd joined hands recently to provide the required knowledge to those who are interested in this area. This project is carried out with the collaboration of Skills Development Fund Ltd , an organisation that comes under the purview of the Ministry of Finance. ,

This joint venture will introduce couple of courses and start with ” Social Media Monatizing” which will support the students to become successful entrepreneurs by empowering them with all the necessary knowledge to sell their creativity. Once they gain the necessary knowledge and the skill , they will not only earn a good income but will also support Sri Lanka by bringing much needed foreign exchange .

” To earn money you need not to be a Hard Worker – but a Smart Worker . Many do not wish to be entrepreneurs as Return of Investment is too high . But anyone who follows one of these courses can earn an income more than what they could earn from a traditional job in the ICT industry in a very short time span if he / she uses ability and creativity in correct direction with commitment and dedication. My dream is to prepare 1000 such persons so that my motherland will automatically receive one million Dollars worth of foreign currency through them without sending an iota of resources from the country I was born .” Mr Madushka Dissanayaka, Chairman / CEO of Auxx Me enlightened the audience at the signing ceremony of the partnership agreement .Mr Upali Gunasekara , Principal / Director of POLYMATH College welcomed that idea and pledged fullest support to conduct courses aiming specially the school leavers who seek higher education opportunities in Sri Lanka and overseas.

Mr Madushka Dissanayaka is a pioneer in the Digital Entrepreneurship industry Sri Lanka with more than 12 years experience in the field. He is one of the best content writers Sri Lanka has produced so far bringing lots of foreign exchange to his Mother country . Recently one of his contents earned him Rs 3.6 million which contained merely not more than 650 words . His total portfolio has reached more than 23 million all over the world and bring lots of revenue to Sri Lanka .

This joint venture will introduce to Sri Lankans a new set of innovative professions and open the avenue for those who have a desire to sell their creativity and earn to lead a happy and comfortable life .

The Arduino compatible ZUMO 32U4 robot interfaced using ROS during the workshop

Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS: VRTU), a global provider of digital strategy, digital engineering, and IT services and solutions that help clients change and disrupt markets through innovation engineering, sponsored the first in a series of ‘Workshop’ branded events organized by IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) Sri Lanka Section Chapter in partnership with IEEE Sri Lanka Section.
 
 Anchored to an alliance that goes back a number of years, Virtusa and the IEEE RAS Sri Lanka Section Chapter moved away from the traditional ‘Meetup’ to host a full day virtual workshop, offering a unique opportunity for participants to engage with robotics and automation experts on a virtual platform. An introduction to Robot Operating System (ROS) – the workshop explored the fundamentals of ROS including robot theory, perception, navigation and manipulation, followed by hands-on sessions on ROS basics, as well as moving and manipulating robots online.
 
 “Moving away from the physical auditorium set-up to a virtual platform, we were extremely thrilled with the participation we saw during the full-day workshop,” commented Dr. Peshala Jayasekara, Senior Lecturer – Department of Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering, University of Moratuwa, lead presenter at the workshop. “Over 120 students, undergraduates, postgraduates, academia and industry stakeholders enthusiastically engaged and invested their day to successfully complete the workshop with an IEEE Technical Sponsorship, one of the highest recognitions in the world.”
 
The significance of robotics and automation largely depends on the broader collaboration between researchers and end-users of various domains – market potential that Virtusa continues to explore. Servicing multiple industries with intelligent engineering automation among a growing solutions portfolio, Virtusa promotes robotics research and application to generate greater impact by developing solutions to end-user driven challenges.
 
 “Robotics, particularly intelligent automation is rapidly changing the new norm of the IT industry,” Misnad Haque, Director – Technology at Virtusa elaborated. “From automated IT quality assurance to autonomous spaceflight, the opportunities to develop and nurture these bots are limitless. Events like this bring together like-minded humans – and perhaps robots too in the future –facilitating innovation through knowledge-sharing as well as experiential platforms that organizations like Virtusa can provide.”
 
 “Our aim is to host an IEEE Sri Lanka Robotics Workshop each year among other events, so that we can work together with expert resource personnel who are on par with global robotics trends and insights,” stated Prof. Chandima Pathirana, chairman of IEEE RAS Sri Lanka Chapter. “With Virtusa’s continued sponsorship and support, we are proud to say that this session delivered on the promised level of exposure and knowledge on robotics, and we look forward to inspiring the growing group of robotics enthusiasts in Sri Lanka.”

Hyundai hands over ‘The Suites’ and ‘The Offices’ at Cinnamon Life to John Keells Properties

Cinnamon Life Engineering Manager Yasindu Wijayawickrama, JKP COO Inoke Perera, HKN Senior Project Manager J.C. Wook, JKP Head of Sales Nadeem Shums, JKP CFO Ravi Wijewantha, JKP CMO Roshanie Jayasundera-Moraes, JKH Leisure Group President Suresh Rajendra, JKH chairman Krishan Balendra, HKN Project Director T.H Kim, JKH Property Group Sector Head Nayana Mawilmada, JKH Property Group Head of Asset Management Theekshana Jayarathna, HKN Senior Project Manager J.H Kim, HKN Resident Director Seo Seong-Soo
 
 
Cinnamon Life, John Keells Properties’ iconic mixed-development project, is ever closer to redefining Colombo’s skyline with the completion of its plush residential tower ‘The Suites’ at Cinnamon Life and the state-of-the-art office tower, ‘The Offices’ at Cinnamon Life.
 
 With its construction now complete, the 196-unit apartment building and the 30 storey office tower were ceremonially handed over to John Keells Holdings (JKH) chairman Krishan Balendra by T.H. Kim – Project Director of the contractor HKN (a joint venture between Hyundai, Keangnam and Nawaloka).
 
 Speaking at the event, Balendra said the completion of ‘The Suites’ and ‘The Offices’ at Cinnamon Life heralds a new beginning for the city of Colombo.
 
 Noting that the apartment buildings and the offices are a key feature in its mammoth integrated development project, the JKH chairman said, once completed, Cinnamon Life will rival anything that the South Asian region has to offer.
 
 “John Keells Holdings first conceptualized Cinnamon Life in 2010. Operating Cinnamon Grand and Cinnamon Lakeside, two large five star hotels, we knew that Colombo didn’t have the facilities to host large regional events. Cinnamon Life with its 800 roomed hotel, multiple banqueting and conferencing spaces and retail space is now positioned to host some of the biggest events in the region, particularly in South Asia,” he said.
 
 “It’s the largest private investment in Sri Lanka to date, and with its completion in the next year, we expect that Cinnamon Life will position Colombo as the leisure, entertainment and retail epicentre of the South Asian region,” he added.
 
 Balendra further added “These are challenging times, not just for us but for the world as a whole. With the right attitude, however, no challenge is insurmountable and as we, together with HKN, have ably demonstrated with the completion of these two towers.”
