Leslie Koorhan presented the material in a way that was easy to understand, especially for someone with a limited knowledge of programming.

Candyce Mairs is an extraordinary trainer! She uses best-practice instruction practices, e.g., giving instructions for an in-class task then repeating, because as participants we all know how easy it is to lose track for even a second. She builds on the foundations set down in the first day. She also discussed the realities of the complexities of xml and how to manage those once we're back on the job. She's a really astounding instructor.

Candyce is a great teacher. Although this course wasn't able to cover all the materials I was hoping to learn, it was a good introduction and I believe it provided a solid foundation to build on.
