It’s here finally! It has been my dream that a reputed school in India offer an online undergrad degree in Computer Science and now IIT-M is doing it. Now it’s open to all. Well, almost to all. I wish IIT-M opened it to all, not solely to those who completed 12th grade! I see a big demand for this course and wish IIT-M success. This is going to open doors to so many poor, bright students. Please send me your views to my Stanford email ID.

You will find the slide deck I used in the class in this blog. I know the class was short in duration and one core issue everyone wanted to discuss was finding a tech co-founder. While this is not easy, it’s not impossible. This requires efforts from your side to meet people outside your network and establish connections. Over time you will meet tech experts who you can trust. But you need to be relentless.
