What Our Clients Say

“Given the breadth of the course, I think it was very well structured and organised, I got a lot
out of it.”     

 

JVM Tuning - Bespoke Course

Live Online - May 2020

 

“This was an excellent course and was lots of fun to attend. Instructor started with basic intro to
containerization, then explained Kubernetes and the different components (Container
engine, orchestrator, control plane) which all made sense because of the containerization
intro. The parts of the course layered on top of one another to give a good understanding of
Kubernetes.”

 

Kubernetes for App Developers - GTLFKAD

Live Online - Nov 2020

 

“Really enjoyed the course, it has been an eye opener on opportunities to steer how we approach the cloud from a IT Service Management perspective.”

 

Professional Cloud Service Manager - GTC13

''Fantastic course, looking forward to applying this in my work and home life. Excellent, practical approach, very motivational. I think the entire company should attend training.''

 

Being Agile in Business - GTBAB

Sept 2019

“The instructor was great! I didn't expect such a good level of teaching with what some may
consider a dry subject. This was simply great!”
