Thank you for the opportunity which let me enjoy the Core Spring class. Looking forward for more classes

The course on Redshift was excellent! As a DBA/DA I found there is a quite a bit of learning for Oracle professionals to move into AWS.

Very thorough and well-presented class. Pace of the class was perfect and labs offered great opportunity to practice material.

Well organized, but the training should have included lab times as well, labs won't be done during breaks.

Thank you for training on AWS development. Course was good and encouraging but labs need to be improved and provide more information and ask students to more work than provide solutions.
