During the workshop I not only covered the above topics but gave students the overview Cloud and why it is important to learn that. We also talked about the Basic Minimum Knowledge , from my book Mastering Cloud Careers required by any developer these days.

The workshop was well received and got many positive feedbacks.

  • This was a whole new field for us to work on. But the hands on working gave us an amazing experience to learn about git. Thank you
  • The session as a whole was very satisfactory and lots of real life examples were given during the sessions.

It is great to see colleges taking such initiatives for students to have them get the exposure from the industry experts early on. This would be very useful to students, if they just practice and use in their day to day work.

I would like thank Dr Manu and Dr. Sumithra Devi for organising the workshop and let me deliver it. I thoroughly enjoyed delivering it to the college students, after a long time.

And by the way this course is also available as a self paced course on our website for anyone to take it.
