Theme: Debug the Code of Life

This event occurred on

Nerul, Maharashtra

Right from our birth, till the time we die, we learn many new things and forget some. We are in the constant process of coding our lives.
Every person has to write his own life code and decide his own journey. As we meet new people, gain new ideas, inculcate new hobbies, new modules get added to our code. TEDxTernaEngineeringCollege will be one such module that will ensure that your code runs the best!
We are often so struck in our monotonous routines that we appear to go in recursion, looping the maze, becoming immune to accepting new ideas. We become robots that follow the set path. We become exhausted of modifying our code again and again and wish to let it just run the way it is. At certain point, the logic of our code goes wrong, outputs become undesirable and then we wake up from our sleep with a bug in our code. TEDxTernaEngineeringCollege will help to open the shutters of our mind, to update and to debug the code of our life off any errors.
