Owing to this, we constantly strive to update our training content, increase interactivity, provide a 1:1 doubt solving Q&A forum, and give students a free internship and job preparation training. We believe that #practicemakesprogress and thus, our beginner-friendly training features quizzes, module tests, code challenges and in-browser IDE for coding practice.”
