Read what previous participants of this workshop are saying:
"I applied to attend the training under a scholarship program that Julius was running for under represented folks in tech, and was very excited when selected! Coming in, I had very basic knowledge of PromQL and wanted to learn more the theory behind the language as that would help me really understand what was going on. The training was perfect for that. Julius is the best person to learn from as he, well, designed the language! The material was very in-depth and Julius was very patient with answering all the questions I had. Would recommend this to anyone looking to level up their PromQL game. "

"This class was a great introduction to PromQL, and did a great job building on the basics to more advanced querying techniques. There were exercises throughout the class to reinforce concepts, and the training materials were made available to participants for further study. Julius made himself available for any questions throughout the class, and stayed after the class ended until all questions were answered. Julius even made himself available after the class via email for any follow up questions. This goes above and beyond any training course I've taken in the past. Great job! I can highly recommend this class!"
