Our company is one of only 20 Kubernetes Training Partners worldwide,  a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider, an OpenStack Training Partner, a Linux Foundation Training Partner and a Red Hat Technology Partner.

We believe in the value of putting in the work from the ground up, so we develop our own training materials.

We also have partners in the USA and Australia who license our OpenStack and Kubernetes coursebooks at their trainings.

Bringing together communities and sharing knowledge is a great boost to our mission of propagating IT knowledge in an ever-changing digital world.

This is why we have sponsored, exhibited and held talks and workshops on the OpenStack CEE Days and OpenStack UK Days in 2017 as well as on the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe and the OpenStack Summit Europe in 2018.

We also talk at the Cloud Native London meetup group on 3. April 2019.
