Lectures are very informative and easy to follow the concept. Instructor made me feel like sitting in night college for class. Great training to understand open-stack concepts.

Good course, but disn’t really focusesd kn the fundamentals od OpenStack, but mostly on the Redhat products

The instructor speaks very clearly, a little slow (1.25x speed is better), and he shows some short demos but enough to show us how the OpenStack behaves

As an introductory course, this is good. But some topics are very brief. The course is also outdated.

Logorrhea: Very badly written and amazingly wordy, which loses the listener and the point. Write it like a newspaper: “Cloud computing and virtualization makes networking flexible.” NOT: “The arrival of virtualization and cloud computing to the Data Center Arena has empowered the development of a flexible solution to make networking more flexible.” (section 1.8 Network in Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform) HOLY MOLY. THIS IS RAMPANT THROUGHOUT. REWRITE THE WHOLE THING. WHY IS NETWORKING MORE FLEXIBLE? “Software Defined networks allow the creation of routers switches and networks through the separation of the control plane from the data plane. So managing the intelligence and State of the network centrally ultimately abstracting the complexity associated to that physical layer.” (1.8) BAFFLING - WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THIS ISN'T WRITTEN FOR SOMEONE TRYING TO LEARN. A RECORD-BREAKING SENTENCE FRAGMENT FOLLOWS SHORTLY AFTERWARDS. The presenter’s voice and pauses emphasize these meaningless words and phrases, which makes it worse. (Maybe it’s just the writing. I am an experienced cloud professional, but this hurt my brain.)

Gran experiencia por parte del profesor, aunque hay puntos que no estén del todo explicados, entiendo que en la totalidad del curso no hay tiempo para profundizar en cada punto. Muy contento en general.

The english was very difficult for me to understand even tho I consider myself to know english quite well. Other than that, the speed of which you spoke and the pictures you showed was very good. It might be that I lack experience or knowledge in this, hence I have a hard time to follow.

I'm able to get at least basic of openstack without paying any money. This is awesome! Fortunately got the certificate for completing it! SUPERB !!

Aprendi muito sobre o Openstack e seus diversos módulos. O instrutor, justamente por trabalhar na Red Hat, possui um profundo conhecimento do tema. A organização dos tópicos e sua respectiva duração facilitam o entendimento dos temas abordados. Sei que o objetivo do curso não tinha essa pretensão mas um Teste de Conhecimento ao final do curso agregaria ainda mais valor!!!

Instructor only promoting there RedHat courses. But in the real world many other companies are performing better than redhat. Don't go for redhat courses.

Course was ok to understand the fundamental building blocks. But it is more theoretical. Practical examples or use cases would make it more engaging.
