Very knowledgeable, and did a good job staying on pace. Was able to answer all questions posed.

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.

I just finished the 3 days training on AWS Solution Architect course instructed by Seid. He is very knowledgeable. He engaged the students and he is very friendly. The labs were well planned. I strongly suggest people to take the course.

A must take course if you want to be an AWS cloud architect. It touches almost all the essential services in AWS
