WebServices with SOAP and WSDL Basics

Overall, a very good course. The trainer was very clear and concise and encouraged my learning. I'd recommend this course to others.

Course instructor was excellent, very enthusiastic, engaging and knowledgeable.


Lawrence Newcombe - BSKYB

WebServices with SOAP and WSDL Basics

I was very impressed by the lecturer.
I especially liked the way he used the flip chart; I've been on too many courses where the lecturer did nothing but talk through powerpoint slides, so this was a refreshing change.
