Excellent instructor, excellent topic.
Peter Lubbers is an excellent trainer and the course material is superb. I had some concerns about taking a training class for technology that is still evolving, however the training material and the instructors knowledge were extraordinarily current. I learned much more than I expected to and I have been given the tools to keep up with the HTML5 standard as it continues to evolve.
For the short amount of time we had to learn about HTML5, the instructor did an exceptional job in helping us get a good understanding of the capabilities of HTML5.
What I learned will be very helpful in current and future projects at my job.
Great course. Very helpful. Great instructor!
The course definitely met my needs for learning and inspiration. I'm coming away with a great overview, and a wealth of resources for moving forward. I appreciated the instructor's energy, clarity, and knowledge!
Thanks!!! This was really good. Peter's humor was great.
I greatly appreciate that we were given a huge resource to take home and expand on what we learned in the 2 day course. There really is no way that everything could be covered in 2 days.
There was an amazing lot of information in just two days. To figure out this stuff myself would takes weeks. Thanks!
Great learning experience!
HTML5 has become one of the hottest topics in the last several months. I was very interested to learn about the capabilities of the standard and what the future had in store. The instructor was able to paint a clear picture of HTML5 in a short amount of time. I am more than pleased with the knowledge I gained and look forward to any future training courses that he will provide.
I would be interested in other recommended classes to take to learn further.
The instructor is incredibly knowledgeable on the topics and can speak to the real issues that real developers are facing. I highly recommend this course and this instructor to any company looking at the future of their web development. We frequently said "well THAT tip was worth the course right there." Thanks!
Simply great training I've ever had!!!
Training was GREAT!
I like that the training was in-house. Great Intro to HTML5.
The insructor has excellent teaching skills, very knowledgeable and informative. I would like to recommend this course to any one in this field as I found very use full for my career.
The HTML5 Bootcamp course was quite intense and provided the kind of challenge I was looking for over a conference. I liked having the instructor there to help through problems—he even solved some problems with my code after the session was over! He was quite humble and helpful, despite clearly being one of few people who have a grasp of some of the highly technical knowledge required to understand this technology on both a broad and deep level. Kudos to Marakana and the instructor for running this amazing course.
I really enjoyed this course and can see many potential uses for the technology. I hope I will have the opportunity to put it into practice! Thank you!
Really excellent class in a subject that is largely untried so far. I would happily recommend this class to others and also would take more classes at this facility and with this instructor.
Very well done!
The course and the instructor were very good. I really learned the subject and enjoyed the course.
This serves as a good introductory-class to the new subjects in html5.
I enjoyed the class very much and the materials covered and lab portion of the class well demonstrated applications of HTML5 to website development.
Instructor really has the perspective of a teacher. He takes the time needed to get the idea across, and presented ideas clearly.
The instructor knew each topic very well, and I could tell he was speaking from personal experience. I learned alot, and this material will be valuable to our projects moving forward.
Awesome! Thanks :)
My instructor was really an expert in HTML5 and I feel very fortunate to have learned from someone who is already using it and knows it so well.
Excellent training. Just the right amount of depth.
The course was great! The instructor really knows his stuff.
