What IT industry expects from freshers - ITN Digital with

Hi Everyone,
Probably you are aware that there are several thousands of IT students passing out from few dozens of state and private institutions every year in our country.
But when software companies try to fill their vacancies they face some degree of difficulty in choosing the best talent.
Sometimes companies have to interview large number of prospective candidates to fill just one vacancy. This is due to several expectation gaps in fresh IT professionals.

We know you all are brilliant students. But it is not just technical knowledge you should posses, we expect that you to be both effective and efficient as new comers to IT industry. 

Efficient means that you do the things right. We see this from many students where they are very good in completing things on time. 
On the other hand being effective is doing the right things which is far more important and also difficult task than being efficient.

When doing right things you have be proactive – which means you are ready before something happens, you have to think out of the box, analyze alternatives, identify priorities and find the best solution which requires you to put more effort and time. When we're truly effective at work, we manage our time well, we communicate clearly, and we have a good attitude. 

Effective workers are often the most respected and the most productive in their workplaces so it is vital for both individual and company’s growth.

Sometimes people tend to think that they have not been given the opportunity. Don't worry, there are ample of opportunities in this world. You should be capable of findings ways to get new opportunities created by exploring the internal company environments. There is a lot more happening in the world than you see so open your eyes and don't be afraid to ask if you are in doubt.  Always try to be truthful and it is not a shame to ask since we all are not perfect on all aspects and in the meantime try to build your self-confidence.

As fresh IT professionals you should be able to effectively collaborate with team members, learn new concepts quickly, come up with creative ideas, think how we can do things differently to get things done a better way by improving the overall productivity or enhancing the processes and share them with your leadership openly. This will definitely makes you exceed IT industry expectations and build a successful career.

Topic: - e-වෙබ් අඩවි හරහා ගනු දෙනු කිරීම ආරක්‍ෂිත ?

අප මෙහිදී අද සාකච්චා කරන්නේ  e-commerce වෙබ් අඩවියක් යනු කුමක්ද. එවන් වෙබ් අඩවි සමග ගනුදෙනු කිරිමෙදී සැලකිලිමත් විය යුතු කරුණු මොනවා ද යන්න පිළිබඳවයි.

E-commerce  වෙබ් අඩවි යනු?

යම් ගනුදෙනු කරුවකුගේ තොරතුරු අන්තර්ජාලය ඔස්සේ හුවමාරු කිරීම තුලින් භාණ්ඩ හා සේවා අපට ලබා ගැනීමට පහසුකම් සපයන වෙබ් අඩවියක්.

අපි දන්නවා විවිධ මාදිලියේ  e-commerce වෙබ් අඩවි තිබෙනවාඑයින්  වඩාත්ම ප්‍රචලිත වෙලා තියෙන්නේ ebay, amerson වැනි shoping cart මාදිලියේ  වෙබ් අඩවි  හා  රජයේ සේවාවන් සපයන වැනි  වෙබ් අඩවි.

නුතනයේ මෙවන් වෙබ් අඩවි භාවිතා කර නිවසේ සිටම තමන්ට අවශ්‍ය දෑ මිලදී ගැනීමට විශාල පිරිසක් පෙළඹී තිබෙනවා .

ඊට හේතුව, සාමාන්‍ය භාණ්ඩ මිලදී ගැනීමක දී ස්ථාන කිහිපයකින් මිල සංසන්දනය කර, සාධාරණ මිලකට තමයි භාණ්ඩ මිලදී ගන්නේ. මේ සඳහා වැඩි වෙලාවක් ගත වෙනවා. නමුත් අන්තර් ජාලය ඔස්සේ මිලදී ගැනීම් කරන විට ඉතා කෙටි කාලයකින්, හොදින් සොයා බලා තමන්ට අවශ්‍ය දේ ලබා ගැනිම කරන්න පුළුවන්එබැවින් මෙවන් වෙබ් අඩවි ඉතා ජනප්‍රිය වෙමින් පවතිනවා.

එසේ නම්, e-commerce වෙබ් අඩවියක් සමග ගනදෙනු කිරීමේ දී සැලකිලිමත් වියයුතු කරුණු කිහිපයක් ගැන අපි සැකවින් බලමු.

මෙහිදී හැමවිටම වඩා ප්රචලිත e-commerce web මෙන්ම, බොහෝ දෙනෙක් භාවිතා කරන වෙබ් අඩවි සමග ගනදෙනු කිරීම වැදගත්. තව ද ඔබ නොදන්නා වෙබ් අඩවි සමග ගනු ගනුදෙනු කිරීමට ප්රථම අන්තර්ජාලයේ ඒ ගැන හොඳින් සොයා බලන්න. එහිදී  මිට පෙර භාවිතා කර ඇති අයගේ  User reviews ගැන ඔබේ අවදානය යොමු කරන්න.

ඒ එක්කම e-commece වෙබ් අඩවියක් භාවිතා කිරීමට ප්‍රථම තිබිය යුතු මූලික සුදුසුකමක් තමයි https protocol enable කර තිබීම. එය ඉතා පහසුවෙන් හොයා ගන්න පුළුවන්.

ඒ සදහා ඔබ කල යුත්තේ බ්‍රවුසරයේ කවුළු හරහා අදාල වෙබ් අඩවියට පිවිස, එහිදී එම වෙබ් ලිපිනය අරම්භ වන ස්ථානයේ වම් අත පැත්තට වෙන්න වෙබ් අඩවියේ ලිපිනයත් එක්ක කොළපාටින්  කුඩා lock icon ලකුණත් සමග “ https: “යන්නෙන්  වෙබ් ලිපිනය අරම්භ වී ඇත්දැයි  හොදින් බලන්න.

මෙයින් පැහැදිලි වන්නේ, මෙවැනි වෙබ් අඩවි සමග තොරතුරු හුවමරු කිරීම ආරක්ෂිත බවයි . යම් විදිහකින් මෙවන් https enable වෙලා  නැත්නම් එවැනි වෙබ් අඩවියක් සමග ගනදෙනු කිරීමෙන් වලකින්න.

තවද මෙවන් වෙබ් අඩවි සමග ගනුදෙනු කිරීමට ප්‍රථම, අදාල වෙබ් අඩවියේ ගිණුමක් ස්ථාපනය කල යුතුය. ඒ සඳහා ඔබගේ විදුත් ලිපිනයත්, පුද්ගලික තොරතුරුත්, password එකක් අවශ්‍ය වෙනවා.

මෙහිදී ඔබ කිසි විටෙක තමාගේ email account eke  හෝ online banking වලට භාවිතා කරන password මේ සදහා භාවිතා නොකළ යුතයි.

සැම විටම අප සැලකිලිමත් විය යුත්තේ එකිනෙකට වෙනස් මතක තබා ගත හැකි password පද භාවිතා කිරීමයි.

මෙමගින් යම් විදිහකින් ඔබේ තොරතුරු වෙනත් පාර්ශවයකට යොමු වුවහොත් එයින්  සිදුවන හානිය අවම කර ගැනීමට ඔබට හැකි වෙනවා.

තවද ඔබ ප්රසිද්ධ ස්ථානයක සිටිය දී එනම් internet cafe හෝ public wifi භාවිතා කර මෙවන් ගනදෙනු අන්තර්ජාලය ඔස්සේ සිදු කරන්න එපා .එවන් අවස්ථාවකදී ඔබේ දත්ත තුන්වැනි පාර්ශවයකට ලබා ගැනීමට ඇති හැකියාව බොහෝ වැඩියි. එබැවින් සමවිටම් ඔබ සැලකිලිමත් විය යුත්තේ තමන්ගේ පරිගණකයකින් හා අන්තර්ජාල පහසුකමක් භාවිතා කර වෙබ් අඩවි සමග ගනදෙනු කිරීමයි.

E-commece වෙබ් අඩවි සමග ගනදෙනු කිරීමේ දී ප්‍රවේසම් විය යුතියි. එසේ නැත්නම් මෙවන් වෙබ් අඩවි සමග ගනදෙනු කිරීමේ දී රැවටීමකට ලක්වෙන්න පුළුවන්

ඒ වගේම,  ඔබේ තොරතුරු අන් කෙනෙක් අතට පත් වෙන්න පුළුවන්.

එබැවින් අන්තර්ජාලය ඔස්සේ E-commece වෙබ් අඩවි සමග ගනදෙනු කිරීමේදී නිසි ආරක්ෂිත ක්රමවේද භාවිතා කිරීමට වග බලාගන්නකිසි විටෙක නිසි තහවුරු කිරීමකින් තොරව අන්තර් ජාලය ඔස්සේ ගනදෙනු කරන්න එපා.

Digital Citizens with ‘IT Yahamaga’ Program

‘Lanka cannot miss opportunity to be part of digital era – Prof. Gihan Dias
Sarvodya–Fusion Steers Future Generation to Be Responsible Digital Citizens with ‘IT Yahamaga’ Program

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 01:00

In a bid to help school children gain digital literacy through responsible handling of internet and social media, Sarvodaya-Fusion launched another step of the program ‘IT Yahamaga’ recently to educate school principals, vice principals, sectional heads and student counselors. IT Yahamaga is a comprehensive program to educate and create a positive influence a cross a section of society including children, teachers and parents, to help the future generation become responsible digital citizens. Sarvodaya-Fusion has been working on ICT for development (ICT4D) initiatives since 2007, providing digital literacy, digital access and digital benefits to semi urban and rural communities. IT Yahamaga has been designed as an interactive program to create awareness among different community groups with special focus on school children in collaboration with the Ministry of Education Sri Lanka. Over 150 educators representing 65 schools took part in the recent programme held in Kurunegala.

“The wider Sri Lankan society, especially in rural areas, has a negative perspective about internet usage and social media. This has led most schools and even parents to prohibit children from using the internet and engaging in social media interaction, depriving them of valuable learning opportunities. However, the new world requires digitally savvy, engaged citizens. It is up to the government, tech companies and community service organizations to mitigate any adverse impact and raise awareness of the wise usage of digital tools. We’ve been successfully playing a key role in changing perspectives since we started the IT Yahamaga program in 2015,” commented General Manager of Sarvodaya-Fusion, Maithree Malwattegoda.

With the rapid expansion of technological tools and apps, communities need to learn to use IT for the right reasons and become responsible digital citizens. IT Yahamaga works towards educating the audience on how to be safe in this digital age and sources to seek help and support.

“We are privileged to partner with Sarvodaya-Fusion for this initiative and in educating students on the benefits of the internet and social media for their educational and life needs to over 20,000 students over the years. We are glad to support both teachers and parents and on the need to play a vital role in empowering the younger generation to make use of technological advancements in a responsible manner. We also plan to initiate a program especially targeting females under a theme ‘hithawathi,’ to support them on issues they face when on the internet. As a nation, we cannot afford to pass up the opportunity to become part of the digital era and become change agents of the future. We need to be on par with global trends in a conscious and visionary manner,” added Director/ Chief Executive Officer of LK Domain Registry Prof. Gihan Dias.

The partnership with the Ministry of Education has enabled Sarvodaya-Fusion to reach over 40,000 school children since 2015 and nearly 1,000 school teachers.

Director of Education (ICT) from the Ministry of Education, P. N. Illepperuma said, “Information Technology has become extremely vital in all aspects of our lives and across all sectors. Many obstacles are faced if the basic understanding and knowledge is not given and for this reason, an important mandate of the government is to invest in improving Information Technology, especially at secondary education level in schools. Currently, we have over 150,000 computers in schools and under the ‘Smart Classroom’ initiative, we encourage schools and school teachers to include Information Technology into various subjects. According to the Census Department statistics, our digital literacy rates are high and a high percentage of it represents our school children. Therefore, the school is the best place to guide and educate these children and it should be done by Principals and Teachers. We have already taken steps to educate and train teachers and children on the accurate use of Information Technology and we are pleased to partner with LK Domain Registry and Sarvodaya-Fusion on this initiative.”

The Ministry of Education has introduced ICT as a subject from grade six, providing access to the digital world to almost all schools in the country. A large number of schools are equipped with computers as well as internet facilities. The next step would be to help teachers and parents to understand the benefits of ICT and their role to help the future generation to become responsible digital citizens.
