This was one of the best courses I have taken, the instructor was really engaging, and there were assignments that made us think on our feet, and implement what we learnt.

Professor is fantastic. He shows you in a nice way how to achieve the proposed tasks, and understand the logic about CI/CD.

I came into this course with just basic theoretical knowledge. I liked that the course did not assume any fundamental/pre-requisite knowledge, and went through all the material in a clear, easy to understand manner.

Mostly fast-paced. Instructor deliberately ran into errors, and showed how to detect and fix them. Other instructors should take note.

Course is based on a real situation that can be encountered by professionals.

I cannot sing enough praises for this course. If there is a lifetime ownership for this course, then I would take it - the content in this course needs to be practiced a few times, but an excellent course, made interesting by an excellent author.

The course was well organized, and delivered in such a way that anyone could easily grasp and understand the concepts. Glad that I took the course. Thank you Linux Foundation and Gaurav Shah for offering such a great course on a great platform!
