"Before i started with the course i didn't knew anything about SharePoint, and even didn't work with it as a user. But know i learned not only to use it but also to develop in it. Cheers to Jeffery who made the dry stuff juicy. A lot of hard work has just payed off."
Frank de Pijper, WIM4YOU. (20.5.2013 (Monday) to 26.5.2013 (Sunday))

"The best, albeit hardest, courses I've been on in my long, long time in IT. Joel is quite easily the most entertaining instructor I have had the pleasure to sit in with, making learning fun and easier. Whilst a good instructor it was also very evident that Joel knows his stuff technically as well, he is certainly not one of those whose teaches because he cant do!! Well done and thank you."
Neil Russell, Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust. (20.5.2013 (Monday) to 26.5.2013 (Sunday))
