The challenge of the bootcamp was like being dropped in the ocean, with a group of strangers, just far enough from shore to put everyone way out of their comfort zones. This class was a combination of intimidating, constantly challenging, and a lot of work. But, with a lot of patience, prodding and encouragement, the instructor was able to lead us all safely back to shore, much stronger from our experience. In the end it was very rewarding and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in really understanding cloud computing.
The Cloud Genius courses are very informative. Many quality examples are provided. Hands-on usage with detailed documentation and recorded sessions are wonderful aids in the learning process. Would recomment to anyone interested in better understanding the Cloud.
Strongly recommend this program for any IT employees (Developers, Architects, Programmers, Operation and Prod Support teams). The course covers the state-of-art topics in cloud computing and the instructors makes the classes very interesting with live examples, class exercises, videos and of course humor.
Empowering…that is how I would describe this course. The material is presented in a logical and easy to digest format that anyone can pick up and follow. If you are interested in this area of work and want to start gaining immediate experience, do yourself a favor and take this course. I highly recommend you to be.a.cloudgeni.us. That is what you will become if you do!
Class discussions are video recorded and made available offline for self review. That is really great since some of us can’t make a few of the sessions.
From simple to complex cloud implementations, this course offers the variety of awareness and understanding. The course provided an understanding of how to deploy virtualized environment on personal computing resources or cloud hosting services. The course also covered automated deployment schemes to implement software development environments in a way hobbyists and professionals can understand. The course had me engaged through videos and realtime interactions. Even though you may not be a developer, the course provides insight and curiosity for fully taking advantages of cloud technologies.
Instructors are helpful and very considerate when we say we don’t get it. Really important!
I completed the course and was very impressed with the amount of information, variety of platforms covered and the level of detail provided. I had very little Cloud and Linux experience and the instructor was sensitive to that fact, ensuring we understood concepts prior to moving to the next topic area and provided recordings for additional review. Cloud Genius provided detail and depth across a variety of Cloud providers, platforms, tools and solution offerings, which ensured extensive knowledge across required topic areas.
Originally not sure what to expect from this real-time interactive (instructor led) experience, I ended up very impressed and with exceeded expectations overall. The exceptional leveraging of multiple multimedia, collaborative, and cloud-based tools conveyed each lesson very clearly. Student and instructor interaction and information sharing was highly collaborative (mostly real-time during class, but also off-line as warranted). The well-organized, well sequenced and very relevant curriculum (including relevant exercises) served as a solid foundation to the interaction.
Cloud Genius has the best instructors I have had the privilege of working with ever.
