About Me

I'm Ranga Karanam, an Architect with 15 Years of Java programming and design  with major banking clients across the world. 

We started in28Minutes with the aim to create Hands-on Courses with Real World Projects. Step-By-Step series of Courses is one of our creations.

About in28Minutes

We use Problem-Solution based Step-By-Step Hands-on Approach With Practical, Real World Application Examples.

While our primary expertise is on Development, Design & Architecture of Java & Related Frameworks (Spring, Spring MVC, Struts, Hibernate) we are expanding into the front-end world (Bootstrap, JQuery, Angular JS).

Our Beliefs

Best Courses are interactive and fun.

Foundations for building high quality applications are best laid down while learning.

Our Approach

We love open source and therefore, All our code is open source too and available on Github.

We use 80-20 Rule. We discuss 20% things used 80% of time in depth. We touch upon other things briefly equipping you with enough knowledge to find out more on your own.

Problem Solution based Step by Step Hands-on Learning.
