Jan Janke- CERN

Trainer was excellent.

100% hands on. Very effective way of learning.

Steve Kirkland-Walton - Purple Secure Systems

Introduction to Drools 6

The course was thorough and was better than wandering through the many books and articles found on the web. I liked the hands on approach and feeling of being able to learn by doing and learning from my mistakes. This something we will use for our software development and testing.

Thank you!!!
