Brandon is a great instructor/trainer. I highly recommend taking his course, if you're interested in learning more about the development tool kits that are offered by AWS.

Delivered the expected level of training in an easier to understand way than expected.

The class was very vast paced however the teacher was very good at checking in on us while giving us time to complete the labs.

There were minimal errors. The labs were great but the learning environment was difficult to navigate and certain components needed to stay on the screen that covered up parts of the presentation slides.

Great remote learning experience. Instruction was delivered with enthusiasm and expertise.
