Client Testimonials

Subversion for Users

I thought the instructor did very well. The examples were good. The discussion of 'real-life' scenarios was helpful. While the subject matter is, by definition, somewhat dry, the instructor did a good job keeping the students engaged.

Martin Burrow - UCL, ISD

Subversion for Users

It brought me an better understanding of the roles of trunk, branches, and tags, and of the way SVN can help us keep clean development paths along different axes.

Patrick Muls - Assuralia

Subversion for Advanced Users

The fact that it wasnt just done in windows that it actually made use of the command line as we may not always have windows to work with.

Nigel Clutterbuck - Globalcoal

Subversion for Users

What was best about the training, was that it was fluid and interactive, Kristian adapted the training on-the-fly in accordance with our needs and ran a very open and relaxed session, while distilling a lot of useful information. He also worked well as a mediator to discussions which we had within the group.
