Course Reviews

Jul 05, 2021
Well explained what happens and what needs to be done to get a digital ocean instance and how to connect to it. I have already a good understanding of IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. But perhaps it might make sense to add some additional links (not necessarily explanations in the well done video's) to additional info on things that might be a prerequisite for understanding the background better. But again, for me it was not required. but I've done many courses myself so I know what sometimes is required.
