Class Reviews / Testimonials



"Content of the class included information I was most interested in learning. Everything was very well organized and coordinated between lecture, demos, and hands on exercises. I appreciated how a new concept was presented, then demonstrated, and how the hand on exercises were same as the corresponding demo. For the development portion of the class I really liked that the instructor wrote code examples from scratch live while explaining how it works. I also liked it that the class included both admin and development material. Finally I liked the VPC image that was provided for the hands-on labs and that we ran the VPC on our own personal computers to take home. I should also mention a major plus is the DVD for the course."
"Andre and Duke were great instructors.  Had a lot of patience with the students and were very willing to answer any and all questions.  Material were great.  Overall very happy with the class."
"Topics covered were relevant to our intranet site.  Presentation was clear and concise. Instructors were extremely knowledgeable in all topics covered and was always available for questions, particularly real-time site questions.   Thank you for all your help!   Excellent class."
"I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the class that the instructors created. Covered all topics related to sharepoint from installation, backups, customization and web part development. Their knowledge of the product being presented seemed to put all of the students at ease - we knew we were attending the best class to learn about the product."
“I felt that organizing the materials in order of fewest access rights to most access rights was great. At first I did not understand why installation and configuration was not covered in the beginning as part of a ground-up approach, but then I realized your method was the best considering many of us work in environments with enterprise-controlled access, and not even all developers will have admin access to the hardware and file systems.

I am a Business Analyst with a Computer Science background, and having never worked with SharePoint before, I was able to quickly and easily move through all the labs and understand all of the information presented. I now feel quite comfortable setting up and maintaining a SharePoint environment. My first project will consist of an interdepartmental site collection for 500 users with user-based content access rights. That task is now significantly less intimidating. Thank you.”
“All the great SharePoint info you can’t seem to find anywhere else. I enjoyed it!”

"Thanks... I really got quite a bit out of the class and I did see how to customize SharePoint through the object model to create document escalation based on our control table. My other questions asked by the client community were also answered during the class. I must say, it was an intense experience, one that I will not forget."
