Feedback for this course

  • Thank you Danny you are an exceptional instructor and I have learned a lot from you.
  • Very related to our everyday work and Danny have provided samples which is very related
  • The session and course materials have provided me with the knowledge, understanding and confidence to "lift-the-hood" on Sitecore. The tools and approach to Sitecore development demonstrated and taught throughout this course have given me a framework which I can take out of the classroom and use immediately to develop Sitecore at work. The instructor is well-versed in not only the course material but in many of the peripheral topic areas as well, which helps to provide a well rounded experience. He is extremely friendly and personable which helps to create an effective learning environment. He went above and beyond on many occasions to facilitate my style of learning which helped me to get the most of the session.
