CloudSiksha’s First Anniversary


I am delighted to share with you that CloudSiksha completed one year of its existence on Oct 28th 2015. It has been a great year so far with lot of initiatives taken which will yield results in the coming years.

We started our first course in the month of December 2014. The first two courses we did were related to Storage. N R Ramesh, Saravanakumar, Ratnasagar, as well as my former colleague Sarath were the initial participants. My sincere thanks to them. We started the Cloud related course in Jan 2015. After that it has been majorly Cloud related work that we have been doing.

We did our first online course with participants from London. This was the MongoDB course which was conducted by Maniappan. Later I did a AWS Solution Architect Course for participants from US. From then on we have steadily been doing online courses for participants from US, Australia, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad etc.

We also expanded into the corporate world. We did courses for Accenture, TechMahindra, HCL, Sonata, RazorThink and Adobe. We also had participants from companies like HP, IBM etc. for our courses

From Storage and AWS, we expanded to Puppet, Chef, Python and IBM’s SoftLayer. Within AWS itself, we have been conducting courses on Solution Architect, SysOps and Development. We will be venturing into DevOps soon.

I got myself certified as a AWS Solution Architect – Associate. I am also glad to report that quite a few of the participants of our classes passed this exam.

Additionally we have now partnered with other companies to develop online content. Python based content is under development. Similarly AWS based content is also under development. We will publish all details of this once the development is complete. In the coming year we will be focusing a lot on high quality online content.

At this time I would like to thanks Maniappan and Sarath, who took the initial classes. I also would like to thank Ramesh Murthy and his team at StridesIT, who have supported us both in terms of customer acquisition and in terms of fulfilling the infrastructure requirement. Kavirajan designed my website and I have to thanks him for the great job he did. I also wish to thank all my other partners on this occasion.

My sincere thanks to all participants of our courses. We would not have grown this much were it not for your active participation and support.

Hoping the we will scale greater heights in the coming years.
