Release Management and Deployment with Distributed Version Control System

It's about the trainer. He has a very open mind, tries to understand our context and reality. He orients its training towards our need instead of just presenting a generic training. He is not just a technical persons but knows about business, management. So he is able to put things in good context and show pros and cons in an understandable way.
