Under Software Development Training, fresh graduates and unemployed software engineers are provided training opportunities at Hidaya Institute of Science & Technology (HIST), a division of Hidaya Trust, Pakistan where interns learn advanced concepts of cutting edge web development technologies and work on Hidaya's internal development projects using Open Source and Microsoft technologies.

In Open Source technology, interns learn PHP, MySQL, CMS (Joomla), CSS, Java Script, HTML and AJAX etc. In Microsoft, graduates learn Dot.Net module including core C#.Net, ASP.Net 3.5/4.0, Basic & Advanced ASP.Net, ASP. Net Security, IIS Configuration & Hosting, Web Services, MySQL Server 2005, and Rich Internet Applications Development including AJAX, LINQ, Silver Light, and XML.

Students from rural areas, and those who are facing financial difficulties, are supported by stipend for their day-to-day living expenses. Four months training is offered to them on no-tuition basis. Less than 5% of Interns coming from a strong financial background do not receive a stipend and pay for their tuition. Currently, Hidaya has the capacity of training 160 software engineers every four months or 480 software engineers each year.

It costs Approximately $300-$500 for a training of 468 class hours (four months) to train an economically weak software engineer who is capable to start his free lance software development work or join a software house successfully.
