The course is well organized, and I would recommend it. The cadence can be faster.

This was very informative, pleasant and fun learning experience. Even with 3 years of DevOps experience I was still able to learn new things!

This was my second Tech Data course and I have been very satisficed with both of them.

Outstanding job on the facilitator of this course (Ruben) and great information taught throughout the duration!

Ruben did a fantastic job facilitating this course! The only downfall is trying to cram all this information into 2 days! Incredibly overwhelming...

The course material and labs were written in very easy to understand format. This is the 1st time that all my labs worked flawlessly. Kudos
