Just finished up a course taught by Sean Mohseni. Excellent instructor. If you can find a course he's teaching, its well worth it.

Bill has been outstanding instructor. He has right balance of knowledge and skills to navigate this entire process in a timely manner. Thanks a lot Bill.

Great instruction on AWS DevOps, even added more to the presentation for better understanding. The teacher was well informed and technically savvy to assist students on the fly through hiccups.

Es recomendable, pero no puedo hablar sobre todos los cursos, solo el que tome que fue el de Spark trainning, en especifico ese curso, estuvo muy bueno, la verdad.

Sean was a fantastic instructor! He went beyond the material to help one understand!
