New Delhi: PW (PhysicsWallah) Founder and CEO Alakh Pandey recently responded to a student's LinkedIn post regarding the prices of PW Skills courses. The student talked about his previous learning journey with PW and how he could not afford the new PW Skills Java full-stack development courses.
In no time, Alakh Pandey responded to the concern by telling the student that he would look into it personally.
"Our aim is not just to provide the lectures but an entire ecosystem for practical learning through hands-on experience on industry projects and PW Skills Lab," he said.
