Client Testimonials

Fundamentals of Cassandra DB

- Trainer had good practical knowledge about using cassandra day-to-day at least for development purposes
- Catering (snacks, coffee hour) were great
- 3 days length was good

Mika Linnanoja - Rovio

Cassandra for Developers

Topics approached. Very complete.

Carlos Eloi Barros - Farfetch Portugal - Unipessoal, Lda

Cassandra for Developers

The last exercise was very good.

José Monteiro - Farfetch Portugal - Unipessoal, Lda

Cassandra for Developers

I already using and have a application in production with cassandra so mostly of the topics i already know but the data modeling and advanced topics are a lot interesting.

Tiago Costa - Farfetch Portugal - Unipessoal, Lda

Cassandra for Developers

There was a lot of knowledge and material shared that will help me to do my current tasks.

Miguel Fernandes - Farfetch Portugal - Unipessoal, Lda

Cassandra for Developers

The amount of exercises. We could immediately apply the knowledge shared and ensure the information was on point.
