In its on-going efforts to impart training and capacity building to all government officers across the state, DIT has launched an innovative and unique initiative called “Tech Saturday”. In this initiative, every month’s first Saturday has been dedicated as “Tech Saturday” wherein training is provided across the state on usage of technology and new developments.
Quiz and games are held to make it a fun based learning event. This event also encompasses demonstrations of products and technologies by different IT companies to the participants.
The first Tech Saturday was held on 5th November, 2011 and since then it has grown in leaps and bounds. There has been training on numerous topics including Usage on Marathi, Unicode, Green Computing, Productivity enhancements for Government and Public Sector, cyber security and so on. From December 2012, Tech Saturdays are being conducted at all districts on every first Saturday of the month.
