Our Instructor Denny Eapen was great. He was very enthusiastic and made some dry material very interesting. The few issues that I had with this session are the following. The Virtual machines that were provided by Microsoft were very slow, clunky, and only accessible by a flaky browser. The room felt sort of stuffy and everyone in the room was sneezing constantly as if there were no air filters or the ducts hadn't been cleaned. Over all this was a great training course and you could really tell that Denny knew his stuff.
