GTR stands for Guaranteed to Run; if you see a course with this status, it means this event is confirmed to run. View our GTR page to see our full list of Guaranteed to Run courses.

The instructor had a very clear and engaging presentation of concepts that are normally very difficult to make sense of

Everything about this course went very smoothly. AWS materials and the laps were well presented and integrated. Thomas Canino and Ruben Lopez did a great job as instructor / moderator respectively. Loved the presentation style of Thomas together with his depth of knowledge of the topics and materials. Very Well Done!

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.

A nice, albeit dense, course that runs through a lot of key AWS services and concepts.

Content is great and useful lab exercise which can be related to tasks performed at work.
