Excellent course and instructor. All of the material was presented in a coherent and engaging manner. There was a good mix of instruction and interactive elements throughout the course.
The instructor was very involved and willing to share his knowledge. The course was very interactive and that kept me going. It was a weekend well-spent in class.
Sreeram Kolishetty was an excellent trainer. His method of teaching and handling the class was impressive. Thanks, KnowledgeHut!
