What They Say About Lightbend Academy

When I registered I had no idea the courses would be so good. Instead of marketing from Lightbend, these courses maintain a high standard and remain brand neutral, focusing only on the intended topic.

This was an outstanding course, very informative in itself while setting the ground for further study. Quizzes and the final test really help consolidate knowledge. Thank you so much for this phenomenal work!

Thanks for these courses–they are very concise and on point for working professionals!

Thanks for such great content and hands-on exercises. The course was very well-formatted and lab exercises were quite descriptive. Thanks for the certificate and badge as well!

It was a great experience learning the concepts of Reactive Architecture with Lightbend Academy. The courses contain examples and quizzes after each section, which are well designed to help you understand the concepts and test your design skills.
