"It brings me immense joy and motivation when my learners get back to me sharing that they got placed in top IT firms like Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)," shares Nilesh. Community-based learning is the best way to make cloud adoption more seamless as it connects tech enthusiasts together through first-hand experiences, Vaghela believes.
