Many thanks to all the Koenig staff in Goa that made my time in India so memorable.
I originally attended Microsoft certification training with Koenig Delhi in 2003. After 10 years I decided it was time to refresh my knowledge and revisit India, this time travelling to Goa to attend the fast track Visual Studio 2010 MCPD Web Developer, Windows Developer and Azure Developer 4 combo course.
I have had a fantastic time, the trainer was brilliant, she worked very hard at explaining the topics I struggled with and came up with some great examples outside of the standard Microsoft course material.
All the staff in the Goa office were really friendly/helpful. The Koenig Student Apartment and evening meals were terrific, Koenig have created a very good environment (special mention goes to Sanjay) to support the students and give them as much free time as possible to concentrate on their courses.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time and have no problem recommending Koenig Solutions to anyone who is considering one of their courses.
There are a couple of suggestions I’d like to include:
- Try and build in some time off to visit some beaches, I highly recommend the Sunset near Mandrem Beach (www.goasunset.in) if you can get a beach hut.
- If you like motorbikes you will love riding round on the Enfield Bullet and at roughly £10 per day fantastic value for money.
- If you can extend your stay for a while and do some touristy type things - I went down to Kerala and did some mountain biking in the tea plantations of the Western Ghats (http://www.mountainbikekerala.com).
