This was an excellent overview of Cloud technologies. Having the ability to work with open source software is such an educational advantage these days. As I think is inevitable, this world moves so fast that by the time this course came out, some of the technologies were no longer in use (Flocker). Because of the way software is developed these days, it often feels like you're working with alpha versions. There's a fair amount of time that needs to be spent looking up errors. I spent quite a lot of time trying to duplicate the environments so that I would get the most out of this class. One of the main problems I ran into was that I was using a VPN. I appreciate the time and effort that went into this.

I liked the course, but i think the content is too big for so short time an it is not platform agnostic, but it totally goes around the linux world. It was good for an introduction and knowing about the available technologies, but the course does not help in using or deploying them in your enterprise. Anyway, if you want to get a general idea of the products available in the Linux world, it is OK.

Before attending the course, the course content sounds pretty good even for decision makers in organizations - to guide them in cloud technology stacks to choose for purposes of storing their business data.

This course is unfortunately not what I expected. It is a quick introduction and presentation. A little bit like reading a catalog where all important technologies are listed and quickly introduced. I think the expectations for the course are not properly set. by the end of the course you will merely have heard about this and that technology and saw it in action in a video. To me this is boring, and to be honest, I am used to better courses from Linux Foundation. Maybe my expectation was not right; I hoped to have basic skills, with whatever was presented, at the end of the course. I could merely say I heard of it and took a course in which I saw it in action. I don't think this is a beginners course.

I have learned allot about container technologies. This is a good introduction to cloud technologies. Linux Foundation is the best institution to learn about all things Linux since they are distribution centric and fund the work of kernel developers.
