Very educational and informative. Instructor was very Interactive so I had great learning. Presentation is very good. Venue is very convenient.

Very good platform iMVP. I did Architecting on AWS from home and the quality of the material and the labs. Very committed and experienced instructor too.

Didin't give 5 stars because I found the material was too much for 3 days. Too many new concepts, products and strategies to learn in such a little time. I'll have to check all the material and test everything again to be sure all this knowledge is not lost!

I really enjoy the subject matter presented in this course. The instructor was very well verse and presented the material in a easy to understand and professional way... Great job!
