A website for technology update

The technology blog was launched by the two BCA students of St Aloysius College, Roydon D’Souza and Dhiwin D’Silva just to quench their insatiable quest of learning more about technology. Though it was formally started on July 31, 2010, the two techies could not take it to the desired level because of their academic commitments.

However, on passing out, the two have put their heart and soul into the blog and are in full throttle writing about various gadgets and information that their contemporaries would want to know.

The idea of the blog which struck the techies over a fun chat in the college campus soon gripped them and beckoned them to work for it sincerely. While many of their counterparts used the virtual space to script personal blogs, the two thought that their writings should be of some help to the visitors of the site. Thus came the idea of writing review of software, hardware products and gadgets, the area that the founders of the site believed there were strong at.

Today though Roydon has decided to pursue his MS Software Technology in St Aloysius Institute of Managment and Information Technology and Dhiwin will be soon joining HP Bangalore, the founders of ‘techyyz.com’ still live for the dream of taking it to another level.

Today the number of people contributing to the blog has grown by leaps and bounds. The website which used to work through word of mouth today has people voluntarily viewing the site.

The problem, as per Roydon is that the website is not listed in google and hence when people actually want to try to look at it, they are given with bunch of other options. “Since it is not a niche topic, we initially could not bring it to the fore front.

Today situation has changed. With social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, ‘techyyz’ has gone a long way,” he says.

However, the duo have plans of developing Techyyz as a company handling Software development, website development, corporate training and hardware sales.

After techyyz, as far as Roydon is concerned, he is busy with his next project that he is working on and has completed about 30 per cent of the work.

“During the results, we see students crowding outside the notice board trying to get glimpses of the marks. I am designing a software for schools and colleges using which the results of the students can be given to them online. The students can get to know the marks either online or on SMS,” says Roydon.

With great ideas in mind, the Mangalorean techies are out to make it big in the virtual space.
