National, October 20, 2021: Lido Learning, leading Indian EdTech startup and the country’s top small-group tuitions platform, has announced its first-ever Coding Boot Camp. The Boot Camp is Lido’s attempt to discover and mentor India’s budding coding superstars. The top 5% boot camp participants will get the opportunity to take the Microsoft Office Specialist exam, all expenses for which will be borne by Lido Learning. Upto 30 participants will be eligible for participation at the India-level of the Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship. The Indian winner will go on to compete with other countries’ winners for the title of the World Champion and a bumper cash prize.
The free 5-session online boot camp is aimed at students from Grade 1 to 10. Schools from across the country are invited to enrol themselves for the Lido Boot Camp to give their students this wonderful opportunity. While every participant who completes the Boot Camp will receive a participation certificate from Lido, the top 3 participants will win an all-expenses-paid trip to Silicon Valley, USA, for not just themselves, but also their school principals. The winners of the Boot Camp will be selected by Lido’s panel of judges from Stanford and Harvard.
The eligibility criteria for the Lido Boot Camp is surprisingly simple, for such high-stakes rewards. Students must simply have access to a laptop or desktop to be able to take the 5 sessions, and attend at least 4 of the 5 sessions to qualify for the rewards.
Speaking on the launch of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young coders in India, Sahil Sheth, Founder & CEO, Lido Learning, said, “There is so much untapped coding talent in India. There are a lot of opportunities, but at Lido we truly believe that India’s young coding superstars are at par with their global peers, and with the right training and mentorship, can easily make their mark on the international stage. We also see this as a great opportunity for young coders to learn from their peers and exchange ideas in the spirit of healthy competition. It’s been a tough couple of years for children, the Boot Camp and all the rewards it comes with is our way of giving children something to look forward to even as they learn a valuable life skill.”
