Introduction to Drools 6

I liked the logic exercises (writing rules conditions) on the 2nd day.

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!!!
