Massive Online Training Sessions

Coding nonstop for 36 hours to create innovations for building a Digital India is not a piece of cake! It needs a lot of planning, grit, consistency, time management, team work, and yes, KNOWLEDGE!

We, therefore, felt a need to take a step ahead and get the best of the best ‘Subject matter experts’ to train the participants to code the very best at the Grand Finale. We conducted a survey, where participating teams were invited to vote for training programs they needed the most. We received a fantastic response from all over India and teams unanimously chose the training sessions.
