Ken was awesome. Encouraged questions and discussion, took his time and was very knowledgeable.

Michael was amazing! Answered all our questions and went above and beyond when we need it, definitively really nice and friendly course. I'm pleased with the knowledge he had. Finally, I finish the course having learned new stuff. Thanks, Michael!

Lab environment was great. Fun to use real tools and have Linux-based automation/scripting challenges.

I like how the instructor went outside the slide deck to show/explain parts of AWS.
