Ravindra is the most recognised technical trainer in the area of computer science in India. He holds a Masters degree in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Science (IISc)
He has been training students in various technical topics and core computer science subjects since 2008. He is proud to say that almost half of the students now doing Masters at IISc and IITs in computer science have been trained by him in atleast one subject. He himself achieved a percentile of 99.64 in GATE 2007, and since then he guided thousands of students towards cracking the nation level entrance test, GATE.
After doing Masters from IISc, Ravindra went on to work for Cisco Systems as a senior software engineer. He later left Cisco Systems for the passion he has for teaching. His core value is to change lives of millions using technology. He strongly believes that the industrial age idea " Go to school and get a job" is highly irrelevant and absurd in this information age. He conducts seminars and workshops about how a student could train himself and become successful in life using the current technology. Given the fact that top 10 under 40 richest people in the world are the proud owners of computer and .com companies and are not from Asia, he believes that the next Billionaire kid will be from Asia..
Currently he devoted his time educating and inspiring students of all abilities, ages and backgrounds to become entrepreneurs. According to him, anyone could learn the basics of computer science and could use cloud computing to startup their own companies. His trainings have been proven to be useful even for getting into top league companies like Google, Amazon, Microsoft etc.
Ravindra combines his years of wisdom, wit and creativity to his passion for Teaching and support others the enthusiasts to learn and excel in their respective careers.
