Derick really knows his stuff. He's always so helpful when you have questions and you never feel stupid when asking them to a person of his calibre. Many thanks Jujhar

Awesome talk. Really liked it. Loads of good information and the chance to ask a lot of questions.

Excellent talk, I really enjoyed it and learnt so many interesting stuff. Derick is a superb teacher, and always ready to answer your questions. Thanks a lot, Alberto

Thank you Derick, helpful tutorial, lots of examples and exercises. Too bad we did not have time for more.

Derick prepared an excellent presentation with relevant and suitably targeted activities. He was also kind enough to provide resources after the presentation which should further aid learning. It was great being able to go from no installation to a good base understanding of Mongo in a little over 3 hours! Thanks once again... Ben

Great workshop. Could easily be extended to a full day :) I'd love to do (even) more exercises - it's a workshop after all. The content was gold!
