I am so excited to anounce that I recently got the chance to start the University of Alberta Student Chapter. This is an exciting opportunity for the UofA Student Chapter to get more resources supported by the top tech companies as well help student developers grow.

It has been a long journey to be honest and it took time almost a month to officially get accepted to start the club. I am truly grateful to my fellow peers and the faculty sponsor Prof. Jose Nelson Amaral for guiding me as well as giving me a chance to start this chapter.
I will be serving as the chair and founder of the University of Alberta Student Chapter and am so excited as to see what this year as well as the future years hold for us and particularly the club.
Now that the semester is going to start in a few weeks a couple of updates to be included.
I finally finished creating the website and added all the required information.

P.S. I will be updating this page reguarly as soon as we create the chapter website as well as any new updates with this club. I hope the effort I put into this club truly helps a lot of students as well as the local community in Alberta.
