We asked ourselves:
What is the best way to give developers in college an environment that brings out the best in them?
We came up with School of SaaS
We partnered with one of the largest SaaS companies in India, Freshworks to start Freshworks School of SaaS @SV.CO
What is SaaS?
If you don't already know, Software as a Service or SaaS is a way of delivering applications over the internet. You can simply call it Web-based software.
Since all developers have access to the Internet SaaS will be one of the best domains to explore your developer skills and build something that will really make a difference in people's lives.
In School of SaaS:
a) Students are Founders
b) Faculties are Entrepreneurs of leading startups
c) Exams are Levels which you pass with real market feedback
d) Graduations can be investments, getting to an accelerator or getting a job
e) Internship is a Silicon Valley trip to actually pitch your ideas to facebook
f) Industrial tours are trips to startup ecosystems like Chennai, Bangalore to spend a day in leading startup offices and meet their CEO and leadership team.
Best of all:
g) Classrooms are online which you can access from your hostel, canteens, bedrooms - practically from anywhere in the world.
All you need is a laptop and decent Internet speed.
