Post Event Report

The session was a success, and had good number of participation from 2'nd years.

All 3 track speakers presented their topics really well. The session was interactive, specially the part which Shayiz covered was interesting and felt almost everyone understood why they should be a part of GLUG.

In order to keep the session interactive or not so boring­čść, the members of GEM had organized a game where they had previously stickled chits having numbers from 1 to 100 under the seats of participants and a chit matching this number was randomly drawn, the person who's number matched had to perform a dare. Everyone completed their dare and had a lot of fun.

The session than continued and Shayiz spoke about the need of being a part of GLUG. We introduced GEM a sub group of GLUG PACE, which purely consists of creative minds of GLUG PACE.

Also we received many positive feedbacks from the participants regarding the session.

Overall the event went well!, and Prof. Hafeez told us about how our seniors used to take GLUG sessions and how we should also continue their legacy.
