Overall the DevOps course was excellent, as it is a leadership course rather than a technical course. It enables the participants to think like leaders. The course was made interesting by the instructor Suresh who has several real-life examples to explain the concepts, the use of metaphors and associating stories created an indelible impression. Suresh is a seasoned professional who has conducted this course several times and he kept the participants engaged. It was a very valuable experience.
