Anyone who hates “It works on my machine!”
“too many accents on git, it is not a git course, in all other – good” (Sergii Shapoval)
“This course provides the basis of what someone needs to know to become effective and productive in using Vagrant. The instructor’s presentation style is clear and the production value of the videos is high, which helped me stay engaged throughout. Some Vagrant commands and topics were not covered, but I consider the omission of most commands and topics to be acceptable of a “quick start” course. One topic that I wish had at least some cursory coverage is the creation and provisioning of Windows boxes; only the creation and provisioning of Linux boxes is covered. Despite that single shortcoming, I believe that this course will prove to be extremely useful to most students.” (Sean Dockery)
“I am self-taught when it comes to Vagrant, but this course has cleared up some of the muddy areas and shown me better ways to use vagrant.
As is typical with this instructor, his course material is clear and concise and he explains everything at a nice pace that is easy to follow.” (Quinton Delpeche)
