Dear Sam, I hope this email finds you well. If you remember before the end of last year I register for one your courses Terraform 101 - Certified Terraform Associate, I must admit that I learned a lot even though I was not patient enough for all videos to be available, so beside that I use the official documentation from Terraform to keep learning and practicing (+Youtube of course). All in all I enjoy the way you structured the course and how you went through it. The main reason of this email, to send you my gratitude for the content you created and to let you know that I passed my exam/test last week.

This course was a perfect introduction to Terraform and Infrastructure as Code. Loved the gitpod, saving me a lot of time for developer environment setup. We have a project at work where we want to go from a click-ops version of server-deploy to a more automated flow using ci/cd and terraform for deploying virtual servers. I wanted to learn more about Terraform and IaC, both basic commands and basic understanding of how it all works and this course helped me a lot.

I want to thank you for such wonderful courses. They are more comprehensive than other courses I have taken in the past. You take the time to explain every detail of the code and what it does exactly, further enforcing your student's understanding and confidence in what they are learning. Your methods are very effective and set you apart from other instructors. I look forward to any future courses you may have in the works.
