"I found the course to be a great, conceptual filler. I have plenty of experience with both AWS and Docker, but never the two together, particularly using ECS. Iā€™d been experimenting recently, and found your course through searching for tips, tricks and other resources to fill the amazon doc gaps. You presented it well, in my opinion, and I have all I need to utilize docker with my vpc now."

"The class was very well done as I have very limited exposure to AWS in my current role I like how you approached the topic with an analogy I could relate too. It made me want to start exploring AWS in more detail. Thank you for the opportunity to learn something new."

- Lantz Lyon

"I thought the course was excellent! Each segment was just the right length to allow me to get through couple in between meetings :) Iā€™d definitely come back for more tutorials & teachings."
