I thought the course was informative and the tools to go over the material were very nice.

The instructor really took his time and made sure I was able to understand the concepts.

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

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.

This was effective way to provide a ton of information in a short time period.
