    It was a great time to meet great people in the field of IT

    I was skeptical of this meetup after getting spammed for courses -- however, this session offers hope for others. This meetup's subject exposes a unique program after reading website and seeing Aditya's background, there are certainly parts of the marketplace of Software Engineers that will benefit from jumpstarting early career aspirations and/or changing focuses.

    It's not what I am looking for, but I can see it as extremely valuable for any recent graduate that didn't have internships every summer during college and maybe didn't get the salary or job offers they hoped after getting their degree. Of about two dozen programs, I think the program appears novel and cost friendly. To think they would take a $1,000 down payment (per their FAQ) and then agree the remaining $9,000 after you get hired -- on the surface (not knowing terms, etc) -- it sounds like an exception program

    Have a great time at the meeting
