The great thing in the presentation was the ability to care to explain every detail that may not have been understood by any participant. I got answers for ALL my questions. Everything was organized professionally. Keep up the good work! :) This was one of the best courses I've attended here at Luxoft. Waiting for more courses on Java, C/C++, Ruby, PHP, ASP.NET, etc.
