While Munir Usman, CEO Pi Labs was also present at the training session and introduced his team of trainers, Taha Munir from Pi Labs shared his experience of developing a game known as Letters2Friends.

The audience learnt some very useful and smart tips on “How to develop Flappy Bird in 2 hours”. The speakers talked about UIKit, mechanics, flexible architecture and advance knowledge followed by a quick coding tutorial during the two hours.

It was an extremely focused and valuable session for the participants. P@SHA is extremely grateful to Pi Labs and its group of talented trainers for taking out time for the session. Arpatech deserves a special mention as well for being such a wonderful host as always.

There are many more interesting sessions lined up as part of the P@SHA training series in the future, so keep watching this space for more updates.
