Really informative, takes the audience from zero to understanding some core concepts of Load Balancing. Really polished presentation skills and obviously knowledgeable about the topic

Absolutely brilliant. Presented in clear, easy to understand terms and I loved the way the presenter went back and reviewed the sections he'd just presented "So we've just learned that......." thouroughly enjoyed it.
