The knowledge of Kubernetes from both presenters was exceptional and they gave clear and concise explanations and demonstrations of core concepts.
I just wanted to send a massive thank you for yesterday’s session. It was extremely refreshing to have such an engaging trainer. I learnt a lot from the day.
The best training we’ve had.
Your session at QCon was certainly the highlight for me as you provided real world insight on key problems clients face while adopting Istio. Having the ability to complement secondary research with primary research from someone entrenched in emerging technologies like Istio has allowed me to confirm my products value proposition to reduce my clients time to secure microservices on Istio. Coming out of your session I adjusted future product direction, to ultimately ensure we develop a differentiated product offering my company to take to market.
