Hear from our first student.

She applied, succeeded and became our very first Penguin to join our program. An incredible potential on the road to becoming a wonderful developer.

This is a wonderful experience where I get to learn a lot. I get to work on production level projects with great mentors to help me. The founders of this company are very inspiring. I recommend this program to everyone.

Why did we start this program?

Why would we not? India faces an unfair shortage of women developers, generally known to be more thoughtful and yet more apprehensive, reticent & introverted when it comes to applying for meaningful positions at a young age. The Penguin Academy is doing just that: empowering women to become what they want.
