Thanks for Making Workshop a Success !!

Thanks to all who joined us and turned the Workshop on Photoshop event a grand success. Our biggest thanks goes out to Anup Ghimire for sharing knowledge on photoshop despite his busy schedule. And a deep gratitude to all volunteer friends.

The idea of organizing the event came just a week before at our 11th meetup. Kuber Sodari, a photography enthusiast and member of HCOE Developers' Circle since long time expressed interest to share his knowledge on photoshop which could help to explore more ideas for designs and also enhance creativity. Then we decided to organize the event soon and came up with proposal which the faculty department accepted without second thought.

Though the event started some minutes late than scheduled, it got smooth with fun, knowledge and enjoyment that kept on adding enthusiasm to participants, tutor and we organizers too. As that was a beginners workshop, our tutor started from basic stuffs of photoshop and got to some deep steps also which was enjoyed by all. But its not that much easy task to play with these things. It needs some more tries which we hope all the participants will do. We will update some tutorials here soon.

Such a events are essential to boost the experience and expand the horizon of knowledge. Keeping view on that, we have been organizing meetups since a year. If you are thinking of sharing some techie stuffs or hoping events to happen on specific topics, please suggest us or post in the group. Your words will be highly appreciated.

We are always looking for ways to improve the community culture and enhance networking too. Feedback and suggestions are always welcomed.
