I'd suggest for Scaler Instead in case you want to learn more. Upgrad, SimpliLearn, Great learning all these are too commercial with respect to the quality of content they provide. Just sharing these thoughts after hearing reviews from my own circle

One of my colleagues has done Upgrad Devops course said he had over-all bad experience from that course.

Whereas another friend had done Full stack development course from Scaler, he has now switched to a good product based company.

As per my experience pls do not spend more than 50-70k on any course. If you have less than 5 yrs experience, there are higher chance of getting relevant job role after the course or else becomes bit difficult. If your company is sponsoring for the course then you can go for higher range.

Please go ahead and take a look at scaler program as well upgrad has the content but if one of module gets you a wrong person to teach your that module will be bad and iiit b teachers are actually the school teachers. So would recommend who focuses on industry rather than only concepts

I did the AIML course from Great Learning and got into EY

Pehle 9 fixed tha. EY mein 14 fixed aur 3 variable mila. Thoda kam hai par mera previous CTC bhi kam hi tha. Mere role pey max 22 fixed milta hai, as far as i know

I’m currently enrolled with UPGRAD and my experience so far have been exceedingly well. They do cover the theory and invite various people to even speak on personal sessions on resume , opportunities. The deadlines are quite hectic so it’s fun !!

Scaler is extremely costly I believe and was not an option for me at that point of time.

I’m speaking with experience. It’s not too easy to level up with the UPGRAD course cause the content is really loaded which is what I wanted.

Also people are really hyping Scaler which can be good I’m sure
But with UPGRAD since it’s affiliated to IIIT Bangalore. A lot of senior faculty members take the class who’ve worked with prestigious organisations for 12,13,14 years; personally I’d prefer that itself.


Lastly, the assignments are given the personal feedbacks on. I’m enrolled in the course, I do have some experience prior to this and I can refer at UPGRAD if you’d need that at any point.

I’m glad I’m leaning with them though
