Business Rule Management (BRMS) with Drools Training Course

I appreciate the effort made by NobleProg and the trainer in particular to hold this course, Bernard not only described the features of the product, he also helped me understand how it fits with my project

 

Fernando Orus - InSynergy Consulting SA

Introduction to Drools 6

I liked the logic exercises (writing rules conditions) on the 2nd day.

Jan Janke- CERN

WildFly Server Administration

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!!!
