Q: Google’s Developer Students Clubs was founded at WCU this year and you were nominated Head of the local branch of the club. Can you briefly tell us about this program?

A: The Developer Students Clubs, is a program created by Google and organized for students. The Developer Students Clubs aims to create an internal community for university students interested in Google’s programming technologies. During the 2020-2021 academic year, there will be active events (seminars, webinars, etc.) by professionals and team members. In addition, at the end of the academic year, the team will create and submit projects. For the first time in Azerbaijan, this club has been appointed a supervisor.

Q: What opportunities will the club provide to students?

A: The main advantage of the club is the support of a leading global company- Google. Students can establish cooperation between their educational institutions and Google and develop their skills by working on their own, while making a great contribution to their careers. They can also join seminars or webinars that take place every month to listen to interesting topics, and get directions and valuable advice from experts. At the same time, they will join the projects to be developed in our Technopark and take advantage of the opportunities to submit their most successful projects to Google.

Q: Can students of other higher education institutions join the club?

A: The club is exclusive to WCU students. Any student who wishes to attend seminars or webinars within the university can join and benefit from these opportunities. Participation is completely free. Other University students will be able to watch the club’s events online.
