What our customers say


“The instructors were friendly; the class was very wide-ranged. We covered 12 factors in details, learned about service registration and discovery, log tracing. That was as much as you can pack in a few hours.”

Adam Singh

Web Development Leader at Cummis Inc


“It was a great training. I’ve tried to look at this stuff and understand it on my own, but coming to this class allowed me get a much deeper understanding of Bosh and Cloud Foundry. What I’ve learned is how to deploy it, the value it has, how much more sophisticated than some of the other PaaS systems it is.”

Bill Harper

Senior Solutions Architect at Metacloud


“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


“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


“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.”
