A Google engineer, who taught coding to his juniors while he was studying at Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College in West Bengal, on Monday proudly shared that the first benchers in his classes are now all employed as software engineers at Amazon.
Raj Vikramaditya, known as ‘Striver’ on microblogging site X, reminisced about a particular class from 2017. In his post, he revealed that even amidst a power outage, the determined students in his class used their flashlights to continue learning. This moment, he said, will forever remain etched in his heart.
“I never thought that the first benchers would be in Amazon,” the Google engineer wrote on X.
Take a look at the post below:
