PTA launches capacity building course in mobile Apps development

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Wednesday organized a course to build human and institutional capacity in mobile application development.



The course has been arranged in collaboration with International Telecommunication Union (ITU) February from 16-26 upon request from Information and Communication Technology Institute (ICTI) to build the capacity and skill set on Mobile application development and mobile mediated solutions.

At the opening ceremony, Chairman PTA, Dr. Syed Ismail Shah said the collaboration to support m-apps development was an excellent example involving UN Agency (ITU), neighbouring countries and local expertise from PTA, NUST and mobile industry in Pakistan.

He said Pakistan is ready to share its policy and regulatory expertise with countries in Asia-Pacific region and would be hosting international events and trainings in near future.

Senior Advisor of ITU, Sameer said ITU was committed for ICT development in Afghanistan by building human and institutional capacity and developing skill sets for trainers of ICTI.

It would help foster international cooperation by using expertise from Member State Pakistan and leverage hands on practical experience from academia as well as industry experts for m-apps development that would serve as powerful tool for enhancing productivity, job creation and improving e-government and citizen services, he said.

Shahryar Khan from National University of Science and Technology (NUST) said Pakistan was the lead developer of training modules for 10 days extensive course using IOS and android platform.

Mr. Khan has also developed mobile applications for Bhutan working as ITU Expert in 2013. Muneeb Ahmed, CTO SWAM Tech and Ms. Iram Tariq Bhatti, CEO Lab Magic and Winner of ITU Young innovators competition-2012 will also assist in conducting the workshop.

Muhammad Faisal from Telenor Pakistan and Mudassir Nazar from Mobilink Pakistan have also contributed to workshop and shared their perspective.

The proven contribution of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) to national socio-economic development has been the subject of numerous studies.



The ICTs and associated applications including mobile applications, which have come to be known as "e government", "e agriculture", "e education", "e health", "e entrepreneurship", etc., contribute to development by enabling access to and exchange of information and services anywhere and anytime.

ICTs also enhance access to markets, and increasingly facilitate direct democratic participation. These provide more cost-efficient and effective ways to preserve and promote local culture.

The main objectives of the training course are to build human and institutional capacity in mobile application development and fill the gap which is lack of skilled professionals in mobile application development in Afghanistan and to train instructors of ICTI.

The other aims are to analyse case studies on different countries of Asia Pacific region and to teach how to develop native applications on iPhone and Android devices/platforms. APP
