Business Rule Management (BRMS) with Drools

The trainer was able to give us industry experience beyond the course material. Trainer has real world hands on experience.

Excellent job in compressing 3 days into 1. Very useful outside discussions on Rule authoring and general AI.

Trainer was excellent.

100% hands on. Very effective way of learning.

Steve Kirkland-Walton - Purple Secure Systems

Introduction to Drools 6

The course was thorough and was better than wandering through the many books and articles found on the web. I liked the hands on approach and feeling of being able to learn by doing and learning from my mistakes. This something we will use for our software development and testing.

Thank you!!!
