AIT Hackers Association

Fellow Hackers,
Time, they say, is the most important asset in our fraternity. And I agree to the same in my full being.
Agreed that we have not been in touch for a while, but DO NOT ASSUME IT AS OUR DEATH... mind you, "WE ARE ALIVE".
Yes, we are damn alive and we have been working day in and day out to create stuff that you, the fellow hackers would love to be a part of.

A) First and foremost, AHA, which was initially started as an informal student organisation has off-shooted itself into a formal registered club, by the name of Open Source Activities Centre.

Visit :
Congratulations everyone!

B) Then, We have successfully completed designing of the new AIT College Website. The demo version is available at
So it is a humble request to all to visit it, and provide us with your valuable feedback.
We can now boast of the best web facilities available for ourselves:
1. online project management system
2. online tutorials
3. Discussions and forums
4. Notices and notifications
5. online assignment submission
and many many more.

And that's not all friends. We have more in our bag.

C) A dedicated web server is currently operational, with 500GB space (as of now) and we plan to switch to an ubuntu cloud soon, with a capacity of 2TB(huh!)
Do visit :
(Don't mind if it throws error 404, AIT as always is under electricity crisis )
We are currently providing root access to only the teams working on various projects here.
Well, that reminds me of the other projects that we have undertaken.

D) A GIT hosting facility is operational, by the name of iCode
The creators have open-sourced the code as well.
Visit :
And if that does not suffice as the reasons for our absense,

E) An LDAP server is in the making too.

F) Video Conferencing system (using bigbluebutton)

F) Scipher will be back. Yes, Saturday Cipher a.k.a. SCIPHER will be back from next saturday. And this time, the prize money is BIG.

G) A regular column in the college technical newsletter

So, fellow hackers, I hope we have done our bit. All the endeavours are open for public viewing. Please provide your feedback on each of them.

We would love to hear from you.

And, as in the Transformers, they say, WE ARE HERE...WE ARE WAITING.

Suggestions, comments, feedback, questions, clarifications, all are welcome. Write back, even if it's just a hello. We would love to hear from you.

How the Python import system works

How the Python import system works From: If you ask me to name the most misunderstood aspect of Python, I will answer without a second thought: the Python import system. Just remember how many times you used relative imports and got something like  ImportError: attempted relative import with no known parent package ; or tried to figure out how to structure a project so that all the imports work correctly; or hacked  sys.path  when you couldn't find a better solution. Every Python programmer experienced something like this, and popular StackOverflow questions, such us  Importing files from different folder  (1822 votes),  Relative imports in Python 3  (1064 votes) and  Relative imports for the billionth time  (993 votes), are a good indicator of that. The Python import system doesn't just seem complicated – it is complicated. So even though the  documentation  is really good, it d

On working remote

The last company I worked for, did have an office space, but the code was all on Github, infra on AWS, we tracked issues over Asana and more or less each person had at least one project they could call "their own" (I had a bunch of them ;-)). This worked pretty well. And it gave me a feeling that working remote would not be very different from this. So when we started working on our own startup, we started with working from our homes. It looked great at first. I could now spend more time with Mom and could work at leisure. However, it is not as good as it looks like. At times it just feels you are busy without business, that you had been working, yet didn't achieve much. If you are evaluating working from home and are not sure of how to start, or you already do (then please review and add your views in comments) and feel like you were better off in the office, do read on. Remote work is great. But a physical office is better. So if you can, find yourself a co-working s


मुद्दत हो गयी उन तन्हायियो को गुजरे , फिर भी इन आँखों में नमी क्यों है  ? तोड़ दिया मोहब्बत पर से यकीन मेरा, फिर भी मेरी दुनिया में तेरी कमी क्यों है ? हसरत है क्यों आज भी तेरी चाहत की मुझे, क्यों याद तेरी जेहेन से मिटती नहीं ? जलजला क्यों उमड़ता है ख्वाबो में मेरे, उस आशिकी की आगज़नी क्यों है  ? सन्नाटो में भी क्यों सुनता हू तुझे मेरी परछाई से क्यों तू जाती नहीं ? इन डबडबाती आँखों को तलाश तेरी, आज भी कहीं क्यों है   ?
