Very good platform iMVP. I did Architecting on AWS from home and the quality of the material and the labs. Very committed and experienced instructor too.

Didin't give 5 stars because I found the material was too much for 3 days. Too many new concepts, products and strategies to learn in such a little time. I'll have to check all the material and test everything again to be sure all this knowledge is not lost!

AZ-300 course experience was good . Eylem Uysal was very good, the best instructor and i had really good experience attending course and classes with Eylem.

One of the best organized and thoughtful learning sessions I've attended, thank you!

Great Class and Chris was a very knowledgeable instructor. Hoping it prepped me well enough for upcoming exam!

Labs were well organized, instructions were clear.

Instructor was knowledgeable and helpful.
