      I and my friends joined Pragra a few months and I am convinced that Pragra was the most valuable educational experience in my life. 

      Pragra team really care about the students and they have created a diverse and highly engaging learning community that is transforming Miami's tech scene. The trainers are committed to helping the students succeed. The instructor Prerit is an expert in Web Development and an amazing teacher. The other mentors are also supportive and willing to help. After 10 weeks of learning, we are being offered  Job Support. Ajay follows up with the students and they are great resources for finding a job. I already have an internship lined up through their Co-Op Fellowship program which is an amazing opportunity. 

         Becoming a coder is a challenge but you will be provided the tools for success and at the end of the day a student will get what they put in the program. Every student in the program is eager to really learn the craft and we pushed each other to build great apps. This bootcamp is for whoever who is willing to challenge themselves and start a new career.

I feel lucky to have teachers like Atin, Vivek and Ajay and studied under their guidence. Students gets assistance in placement. Pragra has many success stories in all the courses. I highly recommend Selenium Automation QA Analyst course if you are interested in Software Automation Testing from Pragra.

      I had an amazing experience with Pragra while learning AWS Cloud program. The main factor that drew me to the program originally was the fact that it had an online option that still included the rigor and attention of a classroom atmosphere in Mississauga. My cloud trainer was extremely supportive and helped me throughout my interview process, and always gave me very prompt replies. Big thanks! 

      My (2nd) mentor was also very patient, knowledgable and supportive. Always thinking from my perspective, and sharing all he knows about a problem and he used to pitch in whenever I needed

      Pragra team is also very supportive when I had to switch mentor two months into my program. I think it is worth the effort to find someone that is suitable for your background and situation. Don't settle down with someone you don't feel comfortable. Pragra administration and student advisor team are also very responsive every time I need help with ad-hoc sessions or interviews. 

      I would highly recommend it as a structured course like from school, where you have people who make regular follow-ups with you. The good thing is that I provide me a complete picture of what are the things available and need to know. But some people may feel overwhelmed if you don't enjoy many assignments. My advice is that please follow the program content, don't skip the classes and finish your assignments regularly especially the hands-on one. Some key points for thumps-up:

      • Professional trainer with in-depth knowledge
      • Strong back-up team for help and support
      • Lots of practical sessions with industry case studies 
      • Amazing support for job search and interview preparation. 

      I highly appraise the team and i will definitely go for DevOps program in next batch.

      Hey Folks,
      I enrolled the 16- weeks intensive Full-Stack Bootcamp program at Pragra. I'd say overall joining Pragra is one of the best decisions I've ever made and one of the most amazing things I've ever done.

      Overall, Pragra is not the place where you just sit in the classroom and hoping your trainer would hold your hand to review through programming related materials. Sure, there is help provided if you request so, but it definitely takes effort and dedication to be successful at Pragra, and more importantly, to be successful at your future job after graduation. Self-motivation is the key to success here. So be prepared for some regressive hands-on coding sessions.

      Even though I came from a software developer background, the content that Pragra trainer taught us is pretty challenging, that I constantly find myself running out of time to study ahead of next day's material. Though, I did feel fulfilled and satisfied by the overwhelming topics that we have to read and understand because it is also probably one of the few ways we could improve ourselves rapidly. 

      I would definitely recommend Pragra to anyone who is good at logical thinking and wants a career in  Development.  I have no doubt that I've been given the tools I need to succeed.

      Pragra Consulting has a perfect team and great skills in Web Automation and Java Programming plus full stack developers training by Atin. I believe they're also one of the highest performing in the Canada. The learning experience was phenomenal, but the culture and networking was above and beyond what I expected. I made lifelong friends and careerlong contacts during this course. Our instructors were outstanding - Atin & Vivek – genuinely great people who had decades of IT industry experience and also great teaching skills. We still stay in touch for future learning as well.

      Our curriculum was cutting edge, incorporating the latest technology and job focused, tried and true design theories. Industry use cases were woven into our days for panels and talks. We also spent time building our portfolios, working with real projects, and preparing for the job hunt. I know we learned the latest and greatest because I wowed potential employers at all of my interviews with my portfolio.

      I felt like I was really well prepared for my job search. While most of my cohort found jobs within 3 months curriculum, I took a little longer but fell within my estimate of around 3-4 months. Career coaching was a priority at Pragra and our trainer was there to provide support above and beyond, introducing us to channels, people, events, reviewing countless resume updates, linkedin profile and keeping us in line!

      HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE QA AUTOMATION CAREER PATH!

      Hi Guys, 

      I recently completed my Java Full Stack Program with Pragra in Mississauga. Pragra is an amazing place to learn new technologies like Java, Microservices, SpringBoot, MVC, Node, Angular, Mean applications. The best part is; Pragra instructors don't believe in theory much, they do regressive hands-on sessions with all latest and in-demand technologies so that you get the actual view of things working in IT companies. I particularly liked how real-time projects from various clients are often used to demonstrate the different techniques and hacks during the training.


      The instructors are more than 15 years experience and highly professional in their teaching style and they are working as Solution Architect with multiple clients so they teach you from their own experience and not from any books or academic stuff. They will always boost your confidence while studying and will help in Job preparation, resume preparation, mock session interviews and they help with after job support as well. 

      Well, I would advise everybody to try their demo classes so see the things in action. They don't trap people with fake promises if you are not happy with the quality of program you can always ask for a refund of your money. Don't feel discouraged if you barely know the programming they will take you from zero to hero within a few weeks. 


      Not only Java they offer all the latest technologies including Machine Learning, BigData, Microsoft Azure, AWS Solutions, Selenium Automation, DWH, DevOps, Agile Methodologies etc.  We have seen many people getting placed as well from their other batches, so my overall experience was really great, i would for sure recommend everybody to join Pragra especially if you are in Mississauga, Halton and Brampton area. 

      We really look forward to continuing our learning with pragra with more advanced training like DevOps and Machine Learning. Pragra would be first choice for people who want to launch their career in IT.

      Deciding on a Java Full Stack Developer wasn't easy, going through the demo session was one of the first signs Pragra was right choice for me. Coming to Pragra, you are expected to be at a higher level than all other bootcamps, this ensures you get the most out of the 2 month process and aren't paying a premium to learn the basics.

      The project work I did with my team at Pragra is an asset that will set me apart from other bootcamp grads (no dummy apps or projects for  projects), and diving deep into a technology while building this product certainly helps with the non junior/entry level narative all programs grads will face.

      Aside from the technical excellence the environment at Pragra is incredible. They go above and beyond to ensure that people who join are not only a technical fit, but also a cultural one. This makes those 40+ hours weeks managable, working with a great group of cohort mates, instructors, and fellows who are all there to help you reach your goals.

      Overal I'm incredibly lucky to have wound up at Pragra and couldn't imagine having attended another program.
      P.S check out their free demo sessions on weekend to get a taste of what curriculum is like.

      Pragra DevOps Training Program exceeded all of my expectations. The instructors were some of the best I have ever had, and were extremely encouraging whenever I had questions (a lot) or doubted my abilities (also a lot). Because i had no prior experience in DevOps technologies and they boosted my confidance. 

      I loved that each student could focus on their interests and skills by choosing our own project ideas. It allowed everyone to better find their niche & inform on what we want in a job, since DevOps tools are so varied with different implementation.

      I felt really prepared entering the job application process after completing mutliple career-based workshops and 3 different mock interview sessions. And, I got a job from 3 weeks after at the end of bootcamp. Can't ask for better than that!

      I was looking for a program that would help me get to be doing interesting work quickly, and Pragra was perfect for that. Feel free to reach out to team for free demo classes if you have any questions about program. I had a bunch before I started, so I understand!

      I attended the Bootcamp in 2019 and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience. The training I received was of high quality and approachable. If I ever struggled with a subject my mentors or peers were always there to help me out. The projects you work on successfully enforce the core tech stack taught by Pragra. Additionally, Pragra's blend of projects and pair programming seamlessly work together to not only teach you the technology but also teach you how to solve problems for your self. This boot-camp does not spoon-feed you solutions.

      It forces you to struggle and meet your breaking point day in and day out. Beyond the technical instruction, the support staff are top-notch professionals. They make the sacrifice you make for enrolling in a boot camp worth it. They are always there to answer any questions regarding tuition, scheduling, etc. But they also are instrumental in organizing the networking days, which were vital in my job-search process. I cannot speak highly enough of them. 

      Finally, the best thing about Pragra is the learning environment. They work hard to make sure their students fit the culture of the program, which makes working with the people wonderful. I made life-long friends during this program and always looked forward to coming in every day.  At the end of the day, the Pragra program works. It gets results. Pragra unique blend of community, technical training, and hiring support make it far superior to any other boot camp.

      I chose Pragra because of the comfortable atmostphere and focus on latest technology stack, which other bootcamps seem to lack in GTA area. I had gone through the prep program and knew the quality of instructor and the environment during my demo session. Thank You Atin & Vivek. 

      I found the curriculum to be very well thought-out and organized. My software-engineering friends were often surprised and impressed by the topics covered - "Wow, you're learning that?!". During my very first onsite interview of a tech company was looking through my capstone project and expressed his shock that I was able to learn the concepts to complete such a robust project, and complete the project itself, within such a short time span. The curriculum itself is constantly being updated and refined based on what is going on out in the field and feedback, but the great thing is that all the old lectures are available as a resource, even as an alum. I used some of these as extra resources while completing my project and while preparing for interviews.

      The lecture followed by lab format was invaluable in cementing the concepts covered, and the pair-programming in labs helped us to get comfortable talking in 'tech-speak', a valuable skill for interviewing. Not to mention helping each other over stumbling blocks! I loved the back half of the program which focused more on building our projects. We would have a comp science lecture in the morning followed by open project time. The instructors were available for help during that period and were always patient and knowledgeable. I learned a great deal during this period as it was almost like having a one-on-one tutor. And when the projects were done we had the opportunity to present in front of several companies, which was excellent practice as well as an invaluable networking opportunity. 

      The career support was also incredible and well-balanced. There was a career lecture once a week focusing on a new topic throughout the entire program. These included small weekly assignments (such as practicing our stories, revising our resumes, how to research companies, and updating our LinkedIn profile) to prepare us for the job hunt in a calm and methodical manner. We had two one-on-one strategy sessions with the career services staff during the program and one after graduation to figure out what types of companies might suit us best and to help us strategize how to find a job. The last two weeks were almost entirely focused on the career journey. Lectures focused on different aspects of the interview process, fieldtrips were organized to practice whiteboarding with engineers in the 'real' world and gain exposure to different environments, we even got a practice take-home coding challenge which was then reviewed with tips and tricks on tackling these problems (which severely reduced my anxiety about them), and we learned tips for applying to positions. 

      Perhaps the coolest thing was the mentor program. All of us were assigned two mentors. Our mentors were able to help us with our projects, provide career advice, and be there for anything we needed. I found it helpful to talk with mine about their 'real-world' experiences in software engineering, particularly when it came to things to consider while designing a webapp. Most mentors are willing to continue the relationship beyond the program end too!

      I'm so glad I chose Pragra as my bootcamp. It was an amazing, supportive environment, my cohort-mates are amazing people I am proud to call my friends, and the quality of education is top-notch.

      I wish we'd gotten to dive deeper into some of the topics and covered some others, but at the end of the day it's a 12-week bootcamp, not a 4 year comp science degree! I would not hesitate to recommend this program to anyone considering a bootcamp.

      I first came across Pragra through their free demo (which I highly recommend you go and check out) and the first thing that impressed me early on was the clarity and interactive teaching style of Atin and Vivek on advanced topics such as Spring boot, microservices, Spring MVC. Going to this free demo helped tremendously in my decision to go to Pragra as you get a preview of the lectures, people and the environment. To give a better context to my review, I focused on three things during my decision process for picking a coding bootcamp:

      1. The quality of the education- I came to coding with zero background in computer science and made a complete career change, so this was important not only because of the cost of the program, but I needed to be able to digest advanced topics in a short amount of time.

      2. Job assistance – I needed a program that can also jumpstart my career in this industry since I left a good job to study and commit to a 13 program and couldn’t afford to not get a job quickly or start on an entry level  (More on this later, but Pragra has a hiring program that’s included in your time there and is worth the price alone)

      3. The Classroom environment –  I needed to be challenged and be with like-minded and supportive people. There are plenty of group projects and pair-programming so the people surrounding you are important. Also, you are spending every ounce of your time there (Pragra is 3 days a week, from 10 am to 2 pm (officially) but most usually stay until 4-5 pm +). 

      Needless to say Pragra exceed my expectations and hit all of major concerns. To start with the curriculum, every day for the first hour of the day you have a hands-on session problem and the approach lecture for the problem the day before. You spend the first 2 weeks doing 2 day units which consist of lectures, skill-builders (solo-work) and pair-programing unit challenges. Most of your “learning” comes from these pair-programing challenges which encourage you to problem-solve by struggling and talking out things with your partner. (There is a clear focus on technical communication.) There’s also constructive feedback after each session so you’re constantly improving your teamwork and coding skills. An important note: things are not hand-fed to you. This approach makes you a capable of learning new things really quickly but just know that you will go through a confidence rollercoaster during the course of the program (Will even has a chart that he provides the on the first day). The rest of the program consist of the project phase (3 short term ones and your production project, which will take 1-2 weeks).  These are great way to experiment, dive deep, and build your expertise in certain technologies. They are all impressive (check out Pragra’s website for examples) and a notable experience to talk about when on an interview.

      My experience at Pragra has been amazing, in recent months I have learnt amazing skills here, I feel more capable of developing anything and accepting any challenge. The intensity of the course causes me to study more and more and motivates me to be a technical version of myself.

      The support of the trainers is very important and very helpful, I could not fail to mention the support of colleagues also that in an always harmonious environment help to meet the challenges.

      The school prepares the student in every way, from technical training to background as a market view, how to present for a job interview, how to get your professional image, how to present projects, how to be a good professional. I would recommend everyone to try their classes.

      Dear Folks,

      I have just graduated from Pragra's DevOps program with high accolades for the technical depth of the program. I highly appreciate the job placement support provided by Vivek sir.

      Firstly, I was a college graduate when I started the program, so the very fact that the program is offered online was a tremendous selling point for me becuase of our schedule during part time shifts. That being said, It's not the kind of commitment to take lightly. The team at Pragra make a point of saying right from the get-go that it will be a serious undertaking to which you must devote many many hours a week if you are to make any progress.  

      Their model is really efficient and highly professional. The bi-weekly classroom based mentor sessions are an invaluable resource, and my trainer was tremendously helpful with any technical issue that would come up. If the mentor you are assigned turns out to not be a good fit, they will assign you a new one right away. It happened to me, and my new mentor was great and helped me through to the end.
      Outside of trainers sessions you have their slack channel where you can ask for help on your project from qualified technical coaches. It's a good option for when you're on a pause period to catch up and mentors sessions are not available. 

      The curriculum and its sections are well crafted and they walk you through it at eye level. The non-programming related tools like the LinkedIn and resume guides they provide are also extremely valuable and go a long way even long after graduation and they provide amazing support for the job hunt and placements.

      Overall, I highly recommend Pragra DevOps program, if you have any second thoughts, please join the demo sessions. https://pragra.co/learning/devops

      Joining Pragra family was an amazing experience for me. The main factor that drew me to the program originally was the flexibilty that it had an online option to join sessions that still included the rigor and attention of a classroom atmosphere. I knew that I wanted to have a structured experience that would push me to continue learning the material at a regular pace while maintaining my work schdule as i was a college student.

      There are a lot of concepts that are covered, but it is all presented in a way that allows you to absorb the material through hands on learning. The emphasis on live project reinforces your understanding of the fundamentals of Angular and React. Participating in the program takes your full dedication, but is extremely rewarding in the amount of knowledge gained and the new doors that open up for a career in web development.

      I would highly recommend Pragra Program to everyone specially to fresh graduates like me. Thank you Atin & Vivek.

      I was a newcomer in Canada and I attended Business Analyst Program at Pragra after reviewing their google reviews. It was truly an amazing learning experience here. The curriculum was focused, streamlines and knowledgeable. Mr. Veer is an excellent and experienced BA trainer, he always used to give IT industry specific use cases and examples. I am thankful to Pragra team for giving free demo sessions, I found it very helpful to make my decision. They also have other advanced training available like Devops and Cloud. I definitely recommend Pragra program to newcomers. The course was knowledgeable and affordable. Thank you so much, Veer and the entire team of Pragra.

      As a recent Java Ful-Stack graduate, I would recommend Pragra to anyone who is interested in creating modern rigorous Web applications and developing custom APIs using the Spring Frameworks, Spring Boot, Angular and Microservices. This 16-week program is indeed intensive and challenging.

      It is designed for those who are extremely passionate about learning and developing their technical skills. I personally enjoyed every single day of classes led by excellent educator, especially the lead educator, Atin. What helped me the most was the highly organized teaching pan. I feel more confident and ready after being mentored by them on these courses. Looking forward to taking more!

      The course is comprehensive, fully loaded, educator-led and an excellent deep dive into advance Java, Microservices, Spring applications and the many toolkits and techniques required to start a Full-Stack career in programming. 
      However, it is important to note that this is course designed for highly motivated students who are prepared to dedicate themselves 120% to the course content, challenges, and tough weekly assignments for the entire period. The educators were very knowledgeable and were extremely capable in switching between highly academic subjects to real industry based project examples. 
      I would recommend the course to anyone who seriously intends to transition to a Full Stack career. Full accessibility to experienced educators and technical environments always beats any number of hours of online videos.

      I attended Pragra front end development program and attending Pragra has been one of the best decisions I've made in my career. You could argue that you could teach yourself or maybe even try to go back to traditional school, but I believe nothing is as cost or time-efficient as attending one of the best boot camps in the industry. There is plenty of free knowledge and alternatives out there to learn the skills of a software engineer, but for most people starting out it is incredibly difficult to know what to focus on.

       
      Pragra will offer you a well thought out roadmap that has been proven to work for thousands of students. You're guaranteed to learn the most in-demand technologies and skills in the industry thanks to its rapid-iteration teaching approach, which provides frequent experimentation and rapid re-investment of findings back into the class. One of my favorite thing about the program is that is practical in nature, so be prepared to experience a non-traditional yet more efficient approach to education in which you'll learn by doing and collaborating with others. By the end of the program, you'll have an amazing portfolio of projects that will impress any hiring manager. 


      And even after you are done as a student, you'll still benefit from the amazing career support Pragra provides and you'll have access to the incredible network of Pragra alumni. Be aware that attending this immersive program will be challenging, from my own experience I promise it'll 
      be a fun and rewarding experience for everyone

       

       

    Thanks!
