What our customers say

01

“I think the training is really good. There are a lot of questions, and it’s great because I have the same ones. It shows that I am in the right place. This is a great class if you want to learn more about what the undercover of Cloud Foundry does at its best.”

Brad Schaefbauer

Cloud Foundry Platform Owner at Boeing

02

“This workshop is great for people with a zero of ground knowledge of Cloud Foundry and Bosh. It would apply even more to people who are reliant on knowing how to bring this [Cloud Foundry] up, it is going to be a "bread and butter” for developers.”

Eric Price

Software Engineer at Platform D

03

“Format of the training was interactive, questions could be posed and would be answered, trainers were very friendly and helpful. Besides the content of CloudFoundry itself the insights on working with the environment and with cloud-native apps in general were very helpful and interesting.”

Cloud Foundry for Developers training, Stuttgart, Germany

04

“I really like the training. I think it was thorough and informative. The hands-on nature was essential for learning Bosh, which is very complicated. It’s not something you can learn by watching just two slides. Getting your hands on the keyboard was the best part of the day. I would totally recommend this course to any of our partners or any potential customers.”
