27 Nov to 22 Dec 2011
The whole experience amounted to more than I had hoped for in so many ways. The standard of teaching is first rate and I came here with the intention to come here again in the near future for the other things I would like to learn. I really felt I learned from the best...
I'm Steve Esson. I live in Amsterdam and I have worked in the European Space Agency research center in the Netherlands for over 20 years and have 30 years experience in the IT industry in different areas. I needed to upgrade some of my skills, revive others and learn new ones to move myself and my immediate work environment into new areas.
For achieving this I opted for a 4 week intensive learning at the Koenig Solutions in Shimla, all customized super-fast track with 1-on-1 training in C#, SharePoint Designer 2010, MCITP: SharePoint Administrator 2010 and MCPD: Developer 2010. There was no other way to cover this much material in the time I had available.
The plan was mainly geared towards SharePoint-2010 including the development track. I started this long route in Shimla by covering ASP.NET, the whole .NET 4 Framework, VisualStudio-2010 and C# programming all in first 5 days.
My teacher was astonishingly good. He knew all his stuff as if he'd written it himself the nightbefore and it was still fresh in his mind. All my questions were answered. He was not merely technically good but could see where it needed speeding up and slowing down. I covered everything I neededfrom this huge undertaking and when I returned to the Netherlands, I found I'd also absorbed considerably more of it than I expected.
Next was the SharePoint-Designer-2010, MCTS for Sharepoint-2010 Configuration and the MCITP for Sharepoint-2010 Administration training. I needed to cover all this in about 10 days, which was also a great success.
Sharepoint-2010 after Oracle is probably one of the biggest software entities ever created and my teacher for SharePoint had an encyclopedic knowledge of every corner. I wanted to pass thecertification tests for it, but for me, this was a secondary consideration. I already had a plan for what I needed to gain from the experience, so my course was customized uniquely for me. This is one of the enormous benefits of 1-on-1 training.
Koenig are very accommodating in this respect. My teacher patiently spent hours going through the pile of questions I had every morning. I wandered a long way off track with his full co-operation, but Icovered all of my required diversions and I passed the certification tests at the end of it.
I later moved on through the software development processes for SharePoint. Again this was customized especially for my need as I do not have any previous development experience in VisualStudio or .NET. I got a whirlwind introduction to all of it in the time I had remaining.
The whole experience amounted to more than I had hoped for in so many ways. The standard of teaching is first rate and I came here with the intention to come here again in the near future for the other things I would like to learn. I really felt I learned from the best.
If you need to improve your IT skills, look no further than Koenig Solutions. It's a one stop shop.
Thanks to everyone at Koenig for providing me new talents.
