Kuliza is a Bangalore based digital technology firm that builds social, mobile and web apps. It has recently launched an educational program called ‘AppSchool’ to train developers in building next generation apps. Kuliza partnered with Happy Horizon Consulting, a design-consulting firm, Minjar, a cloud consulting firm, and Shephertz, an app development API provider, to train developers to create cloud-ready social, mobile and web apps.
The 3-month program is structured like an extended hackathon. Selected developers will be trained in the basics for the first week, followed by two and a half months of app building under the mentorship of experts in technology, design and cloud computing. Developers will be trained in technologies such as social APIs, mobile apps, analytics, cloud computing and user experience design. The AppSchool initiative is powered by AWS global cloud infrastructure. All developers who successfully complete the courses will get access to partner companies and mentors’ companies to apply for jobs.Kaushal Sarda, CEO of Kuliza said,“AppSchool is our approach to find smart developers who can create the next generation social, mobile and web apps. We have a constant demand from our clients for such apps and recruiting fresh talent from AppSchool will help us get smart, well-trained developers who are ready to take up such development challenges.” Vijay Rayapati, CEO of Minjar added, “Having cloud ready developers is a boon for organizations to reduce their application development cost and time to market.”
There is definitely an increasing demand of highly skilled developers. Karthik Reddy, Managing Partner at Blume Ventures said, “Appschool is a great initiative to serve the talent requirements of the Indian startup ecosystem and I see many of our portfolio companies would be interested in recruiting trained new age developers from this program."
