I like the way it works, it's a good learning environment and it works well.

The course provided information that I was interested in from a architecture point of view.

The course provided the essentials in preparing for AWS certification. Material was well organized and utilized during topic discussions.

I signed up with this with certain expectations of what I wanted to learn. What we got in class blew away my expectations and we got into more the nitty gritty of what skills would immediately apply to my job. I look forward to future classes with this instructor.

I found the instruction to be informative and relevant and the presentation to be well thought out and organized. The lab activities were relevant to the material and helped to tie everything together.
