Hibernate is a powerful enabler that addresses object/relational persistence in the Java world. Hibernate offers all the advantages of developing in Java plus a comprehensive suite of capabilities for mapping object-oriented features to the relational model. This course tells you what you need to know to design and build your own Hibernate-enabled applications. You'll learn the details of the key Hibernate capabilities and how to leverage their strengths, with a special focus on using Hibernate with other technologies and frameworks. At the same time, you'll be learning about the big picture of Hibernate and how to design applications to use Hibernate in a robust, efficient, secure, and maintainable fashion. If you want to deliver an application using Hibernate, you'll find this course essential.

This course gave me a clearer understanding of the AWS cloud architecture.

The class was good, but at times the pace did seem a bit fast to actually try to remember some of the information.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

They are very good and made sure we had all the appropriate materials for class.

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes
