DigitalOcean and Hasura announce collaboration with IIT Madras to bring the second edition of IMAD (Introduction to Modern Application Development).
IMAD is a free online course designed by Hasura and IIT Madras which aims to combine theory and practice and encourages students to build applications on the cloud.
After a successful last year of IMAD, DigitalOcean and Hasura have partnered again for the second edition of IMAD to encourage students to build solutions to local problems or launch their own business ventures.
The first edition saw participation from a wide gamut comprising from college students to faculty, from working professionals to retired professionals to stay at home parents. They cut across geographic barriers (participants came from 21 countries), age (7% of the participants were over 40) and gender (30% of the participants were women).
Speaking about the program, Prabhakar Jayakumar, Country Manager, DigitalOcean said, “We partnered with IIT Madras and Hasura on the first edition of IMAD, which turned out to be the largest ever MOOC in India with more than 57,000 registrations. We are happy to continue our association with the launch of the second edition of IMAD and we look forward to equipping our next generation of developers with the knowledge and tools required to build their applications on the cloud.”
Beginning from January 23rd, the 8-week hands-on course has been divided into five modules, and will go over the basics of the Internet, browsers, databases and web and mobile application development. The key benefit for students from this course will be to help broaden their technical skills, which is a pertinent need amongst graduates today.
The participants who take an exam at the end of the course will be eligible for a certificate from IIT Madras and course toppers will be provided with internship opportunities in premier tech companies.
Registrations for the course are open until January 23rd on www.imad.tech
