I enjoyed the training and appreciated covering the *non* code aspects of attempting to design and plan an API

Speaker abilities were good but for an 8 hour session it was very light on content. Once we got to what seemed like the nuts and bolts of the session, designing via RAML, he glossed over it in 20 mins. Granted he had computer issues, but rather than taking a break he just moved on and said "now you write an interface definition and I will walk around and watch you."

Finally, the final 1.5 hrs was prep for a certification from NomadPHP. However, when you go to the about page of NomadPHP you find the speaker is the CEO of the 2-person company which offers two self-provided certifications.

Again, there was good info in the training...but not when you attempt to reconcile against cost and time.

It was good for a beginner curse. I waited more detailed API trainging, but for beginnertraining was perfect I guess. The certificate thing could be skipped next time.

I would not repeat what Brian Becker already commented, I could agree, same opinion.
Overall the slides, information were good organized, and could help for devs having less knowledge about topic.

Loved the training session. Would skip the certification in the future, however I found the certification to be tough and helpful from an educational point of view. The certification from a certification point of view seems a bit meaningless.
