I spent 21 hours in the classroom. Felt like 2. Awesome job and loved the ‘training from the back of the room’ format.
I was very impressed by how engaging and interactive the course was. I had no exposure to Agile beforehand and felt that I learned a tremendous amount. I am looking forward to using what I learned.
