Why Great Learning?
I thought that the kind of program, mentorship, curriculum, and training material provided at Great Learning is excellent. Mentors and trainers have industry experience and real-life experience. This helps us in terms of the way we learn. It brings in a lot of values, and they have practical knowledge about what is currently happening in the industry. Another reason is that there are very few institutions who are giving us such a program in the Cloud area.
Did you have a career transition?
Yes, after Great Learning I got multiple opportunities in my own company as well. I have now moved out of Capgemini and joined another organization. I still keep getting calls till date based on my exposure to the cloud and what I have learned. So it gives me added value.

How was the course curriculum?
The curriculum is very good. Lot of emphasis about AWS, but Azure and Google cloud are also being taught now. The program managers are open to feedback.

Yes, it is a 6-month course. And we got everything that we could get through the course. There is rich content, and it covers what is needed.
