"At Panimalar, we encourage our students to be innovative and support them in achieving their dreams. Zoho’s Young Creators Program was a perfect avenue for us to fulfil both. The workshop was conducted with a combination of theory and hands-on sessions, in which our students learnt about various aspects of app development using Zoho Creator. The Appathon proved to be a great opportunity for our participants to showcase the concepts learnt in the form of real-time use-case implementation. Overall, the sessions were power packed and effectively managed. Thank you, Zoho YCP!"

"The Zoho Creator workshop was truly an eye-opening experience. The platform was so much more robust than I initially realized, and the workshop gave me the tools and knowledge to create custom applications that streamline business processes. The instructors were patient and knowledgeable, and the workshop materials were easy to follow. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking to take their business to the next level."
