Great course well delivered. Stuart had a very good practical hands on style to training. In a very short time we went through the basics of Java programming into several quite detailed scenarios. Clearly had a deep background knowledge and kept us all engaged over many days of training, which is not easy.

Course duration was shortened from 9 days to 6 due so the pace was faster which made it slightly harder to keep up and understand however, Stuart was an excellent teacher, extremely thorough with his explanations and really tried to paint the entire picture so you could appreciate what the code was doing, he was also always available via email for further help. He was very friendly and told some great story's/jokes along the way which made the course even better. I really enjoyed my time on the course and just wish it was longer.

I thoroughly enjoyed Stuart's teaching style and personality. He demonstrated concepts with simple practical examples which helped me a lot. I personally benefited from the hands on element because I got an insight into how Java devs use tooling such as Eclipse. I have really go a lot from Stuart's teaching. I found the Spring Course was a bit too fast for me, but that was because Stuart had been asked by BGL to condense a four day course into two days.

This course was exactly what I was interested in regarding learning how the spring framework works coming in with zero understanding. I found the trainer very friendly and patient, willing to explain at the right speed and level of understanding to help me progress.

The course is great for the basics of concepts. understood all the concepts and tried them in the starter project. Now while implementing these further, can refer to documentation for real code.

Very good introduction to Spring for beginners and those who have some practical experience. Very good practical tips for all the topics covered.
