Amazon Class Chats organized for the SVM-Meraki course students are very beneficial for the students as they get an opportunity to interact firsthand with specialized professionals from the IT industry and understand what it’s like to work in tech. In collaboration with NavGurukul Foundation and Amazon, Smart Village Movement organized our second exciting “Amazon Class Chat” session for the Meraki Python Course students.
It was great to host Ramneek Kalra Cloud Support Associate in AWS Support Engineering. Ramneek led a very engaging session with the students, making them comfortable and encouraging them to participate in the discussion. Ramneek interacted with the young students, answering questions about his journey in the tech field and Amazon. He also provided helpful links that will enable the students to learn more about website building and opportunities with Amazon.
