great class and packed with material, would have lived to spread it more into many days but overall very informative.
Easy to work with. Learning material pdfs were able to be printed out in color which was very nice to write on.
The technical data in the AWS Solutions Architect course was very thorough.
The platform is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Great tool for learning
Sean is the very good instructor. I would like to take his class again in the future.
