"Ich hatte schon länger vor, den Azure Developer AZ-204 zu machen, hatte aber das Gefühl, dass ich bei Azure bisher nur an der Oberfläche gekratzt habe. Das hat sich mit dem Training bei Firebrand definitiv geändert. Ich habe nun ein gutes Basiswissen, auf dem ich weiter aufsetzen kann. Das Training war wie erwartet natürlich sehr anstrengend und man sollte definitv nichts anderes als Lernen für die Abende einplanen; aber gleichzeitig hat es auch mega viel Spaß mit der Gruppe gemacht. Und das liegt vor allem an den fantastischen Trainern; in meinem Fall war das Guido. Vielen Dank, ohne dich und deine Tipps & Tricks aus der praktischen Nutzung von Azure hätte ich die Prüfung nicht so einfach bestanden. Ich freue mich jetzt schon auf das nächste Mal, wenn ich wieder ein Training besuchen darf dann gerne wieder vor Ort, was dann für mich persönlich noch ein ganzes Stück besser ist als Remote"
