After graduating from IIT Bombay, Arnav has been teaching programming in a practical manner for last 6 years. Instead of taking up a job he wishes to prepare Indian talent for their dream jobs. He is helping one professional at a time in order to make India a go to place for top engineers.
"I used to be in the merchant navy and I made a decision to follow my dream now before later. One day I saw Mark’s video on Reddit. As far as I know, there are no other courses like this, you will have to do some offline courses to get the same experience. All other courses are like watching a video on youtube or Udemy, the two way communication was a highlight for me in this course. Because of this course, I can create whatever apps or websites I want to. Now i’m always on my computer coding, practising and picking up projects."

"I always wanted to do something that gave me the freedom to choose the hours I work and the location I work from, and now, after this course I have that ability. They are definitely one of the best teachers I have studied with and that's in my opinion the unique selling point of this course. Not only are they experienced and know exactly what they are doing, they take interest in every student's personal development throughout the course helping them improve every step of the way. It has genuinely helped me and changed my life."

"I found the perfect opportunity, I find myself lucky to have gotten into this course and that I was able to sustain it. This course content is a bit difficult as the course aims at training you to be among the best. The instructors are very easy to approach and provide personal attention to every problem of yours. The rest of the students in the course were also great support, when you are surrounded by good people, you become good too. Without the support from the college, I don't think I would be able to confidently apply for projects of the nature that I am applying for today. "

"The stuff that you learn in college isn't as practical, they teach the same thing over and over again. I was looking for programming boot camps online and that’s how I found McLaren college. The course was a good learning experience, a lot of practical experience, learning new concepts every day, learning to be an independent thinker and learner, it helped me push my limits. My favorite part was to learn the logic and reason behind every code, I learnt to ask ‘why?’. It was helpful for me, it helped me get much better at coding, it helped me to think outside the box."
