    Daniel was a great instructor. He was very friendly and answered all kinds of questions, de-bunked myths and inaccuracies. I would recommend this class to all scrum aspirants. I'm sure I'll pass the scrummaster test as I feel like I know the material well.

    Lizzy Morris is an outstanding teacher. She brings extensive experience to bear and is comfortable dealing at all levels of an organization, from the individual contributor to the executive level. Although she taught the basics in the class I took, I was able to get useful advice for overcoming organizational obstacles in my own company for adopting scrum practices.
