An important part of being a developer is to not only write code but also solve real problems. While reading materials and video content can definitely help you learn a skill, at some point, you will have to sit down and start applying your knowledge.

Developers who have experienced learning with Crio have realized that the best way to Learn software tech skills is by Doing. The project-based learning approach on Crio’s platform not only gives you an opportunity to work on real-world tech projects but also a flavor of working in a real tech company.

Build a solid base to grow your developer skills

Turns out that the first thing employers look for is real experience in a developer’s profile. If you are a student who is aspiring to work in a leading product company, the projects you choose in your college days play a deciding role in the evaluation of your tech skills.

Crio's idealogy of Learning by Doing is so aptly fit in all these modules that one becomes a brilliant debugger along with a good coder. I found it a lot easier to learn something by being a part of it, rather than just watching some videos, or studying lecture notes. This made me realize that learning can turn into real fun. – Kushal Shrivastava, Madhav Institute of Technology and Science, Gwalior
The Crio team brought really challenging backend projects to work on based on Networking, OS, Automation, Security, REST APIs, Java, Spring framework, etc. Each module needed to be completed in a specified time keeping in mind the quality of coding work and industrial norms. Crio team always helped us whenever we were stuck by not giving us solutions but hints to proceed in the right direction to solve our problems on our own, which I liked the most. I learned a boatload of new technologies and tools. Crio has not only helped to hone my existing skills but taught me new ones as well. Also helped me gain better insights into Industrial projects than any other program. – Divya Shahi, Institute of Engineering & Management 104

The demand for skilled backend developers continues to rise across the software tech industry in India today. Whether you are a student or a software professional, you will find yourself getting out of your comfort zone as Crio’s Backend Developer Track shapes you into a confident Backend Developer.

I was skeptical at the beginning of how I would go on with the program, but I felt a high level of satisfaction after the completion of each module. It helped me regain my confidence in Java. Also, I'm taking a bag full of new concepts that I proudly can say I'm confident enough to implement those at any level.  – Mohammed Abdul Mannan, Muffakham Jah College of Engineering & Technology
Starting out without any prior experience in web development whatsoever, I must admit I was a bit nervous, but the program was structured in such an effective manner, one could go through the entire program and get significant inputs, given he or she puts in the appropriate effort. This program definitely involves a lot of Learning by Doing. The TAs help us only if we are stuck for too long and mentoring sessions are quite insightful. The amount of industry-relevant experience one can get here is tremendous and would definitely recommend this to people who are just starting out with backend web development. – Bisesh Kumar Padhi, IIT Bhubaneswar
I had sufficient experience in Java but was rusty, also never had experience with scalability. This surely helped me brush up a lot of the basics and also gain some knowledge of scalability. – Vikhyat Prabhu, Senior Software Engineer @Blaize

Apart from this, the program also introduced me to the fascinating world of System Design.
