I was impressed with the ability to bring a remote class into such an engaging state between different people across such great distances. I would definitely sign up for another virtual class.”

    Arlyne Aranda Clark -
  • “The exercises in the class helped me understand the scrum framework very easily.  Dhaval Panchal is a great instructor; he is very experienced and guided us through the process and explained the concepts extremely well. I truly appreciated his teaching style and how he was able to make the subject interesting and hands on. Would definitely recommend him.”
    Tija Bushnaq -
  • “I liked how interactive the session was and that we went through 3 iterations. The pictures and drawings supported  my learning modality.I liked how Dhaval showed us the agile way in his own example by adjusting his teaching technique mid-course to include more examples. I also liked how specific Dhaval was in answering questions, even if they were answered, “Yes and no.” With these types of questions, he gave us where the circumstances made sense, where they might, and if it was out of scope.”
    Jennifer Hunt -
  • Dhaval’s artwork was memorable – much more than the typical slideware.
