Impact After Training, Assessed by Learners

 

Going Mobile with React Native

Their assessment at the start is something I was sceptical of to begin with but I would really like it as a standalone product as I now see the value of them assessing everyone to a consistent standard.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Skiller Whale as a training partner - it's a genuine step forward in the classroom experience.
