Ismail Akbani Sir and Yogesh Brahmankar Sir were one of the best professors I could ask for, and the best mentors to guide and encourage us. The days it was overwhelming, Ismail Sir's jokes really brought us up again, and these 45 hours, were a few of the most meaningful, informative and fun hours ever! I got the chance to meet so many industry professionals and students with a similar mindset, and the #CEDT family is my family for life. I know that if I approach anyone from this family, I'll get helping hands and utter guidance from everyone in this team!
