Thank you - Grow with Google and Udacity for Mobile Web Specialist Scholarships

It's such a great feeling after completing Mobile Web Specialist Nanodegree from Udacity, sponsored by Grow with Google.

When I applied for the scholarship, I wasn't looking for a new job but still I wanted to improve my understanding of web applications. I wasn't hundred percent sure that I will get the opportunity, but still I choose to apply.

I have to say I was surprised to have received the chance to compete in the first round; I was even more happy to learn that my nephew has also got selected in another scholarship program with Grow with Google.

I went on to complete the Phase 1 and then I got selected in Phase 2 as well. Developing web applications for 15+ years didn't help in making the challenges easy. Every project pushed my limits and made me learn so much more. It was really eye opener to learn about color contrast, web accessibility, image optimization and over all the best approach to delivery the content to the users browser.

I can't thank enough of the entire team of Udacity, Mentors, Students, and Grow with Google Team for the scholarship.


Great read of some of the graduates life experience after completing Grow with Google scholarship program.

Working hours in six months to a year

I usually try to look for how many hours I have worked on a given project and what hours that I  spend on learning or network management tasks.

Below I have added some hours calculation, after finding the breakdown by months from Berkeley website.
