“In my 35+ years of taking technical courses, Marty's classes consistently come out ranking #1 on my list. Highly relevant material is delivered with enthusiasm, humor, and a high degree of class interaction that is unmatched anywhere. ”

“Masterful, quick-paced presentation. Witty, but never trite. Discussed but never belabored. A Java ed-venture. A gaggle of Goslings could not have done better!”

“Wonderful. In 20 years, this is the best organized, most pragmatic, and enjoyable course I've taken.”

“Excellent course. The best instructor-led course I have attended, by far. The course was exactly what I was hoping for.”

“Best short course ever!”

“Compared to the other short courses I have taken, this one completely redefined my scale from 1-10.”

“This course was AWESOME. I came with very little knowledge of JSF and now I look forward to using it on my next project.”

“GREAT class [JSF]. Do you make house calls?”

“Definitely the best computer class I ever took... I do not even know how you could have done a better job.”

“Superb! ... Great amount of information, clearly communicated and very good interaction with the audience.”

“Marty Hall is outstanding - invite him back!”

“Good presentation of material geared toward programmers. Questions that instructor asked were though provoking and resulted in a better understanding of the material ... Knowledge excellent, presentation very good, can't think of any way to improve.”

“The course covered an incredible amount of ground in an amazingly short time. But the transitions from topic to topic were seamless, as each topic builds upon the previous one. Marty has an infectious enthusiasm for the subject and peppers his lectures with humorous and interesting anecdotes.”

“Excellent tempo and a wealth of knowledge, with a sprinkle of geek humor. What more could you ask for?”

“Marty was a great instructor, very entertaining, knowledgeable, and willing to help. I found the material very applicable and got much more out of the class than I expected in one week.”
