Concise and good to follow along. Although it is a lot to take in under a short period of time.

The Course material and lab infrastructure and the overall Experience is very good.

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

We covered a lot of material in three days. This was a real crash course in different AWS Infrastructure.

It was a very robust and well polished tool that helped greatly with the learning process.
