This has helped me gain a good amount of knowledge on networking & handling Linux to the core redefining right from whois to Proxies. I would like to listen more of your sessions regarding IP Configurations, Server Settings and interesting backgrounds of web world regarding security & the way it works from the 13 root servers to my lappy. I have seen many workshops where people come in the first day and bunk the remaining, unlike yours, which no one wants to bunk.Being a student coordinator, I have seen how organised it was. You were like a friend rather than a teacher. Your guidance and those practical sessions have helped me significantly in setting up our start-up. It's like TCP sessions where you acknowledge our learning until it reaches us. Santu sir, we had a good time and I can say it as one among the memorable and best things that ever happened in my BITSian career and life.
I am working with amdocs as Subject matter expert and i had attend Network management course 3 years back in june with no CS background. This course has teach me all Computer Networking starting from the basic LAN CABLE structure to setup my own Network. Its a full practical oriented course and you get all hands-on that you want. I learnt many things, (can't write all) but for e.g. like how to configure and run your own mail server, web server, application server etc. What I liked the most about this course is the style of teaching, helping staff and their ready-to-help nature and the most important the way they make the difficult topics easy. And, all this credit goes to Santu sir.. He is an awesome teacher-cum-friend. Its his quality that student won't miss his class after all the bumboos he gives to us. I would also like to add that I also organised the same programe in our College BIT-Mesra, and I am happy that after my initiative and the response from students & faculty that Santu sir got,it is running successfully every year in my college.
