Michael Stapleton held my attention to the course content even though is was a remote/virtual class.

I thought this was a really cool experience. First time getting so much information crammed into two days.

this course provide an high level over view of new devops tools to manage k8s microservices. which is exactly what i need for my project
However ; the course title from the hive is a bit miss-leading.
I though the course is about how to make k8s microservices . However I feel the focus is more on devops tools to manage those microservices.

Great material covered during the training and hands on labs were indeed a must!
