Excellent course (HashiCorp Vault 101 - Certified Vault Associate), recommend for anyone planning to use Vault in the future. Clear explanations from the author help to understand the concepts well. I had no experience with Vault, but with the help of this course, I was able to deploy Vault in a production environment. In addition to the course, you will also gain access to TeKanAid Community where you are able to comment and/or list questions that you have pertaining to Vault.

This course (HashiCorp Vault 101 - Certified Vault Associate) gave me an excellent overview about all features that HashiCorp Vault offers. Topics are presented in digestible pace and all theoretical knowledge is demonstrated in practical hands on labs. I am looking forward to see other courses from TeKanAid as well. Thank you very much, you made my life easier.

Hats off for your presentation skills. Advanced topics presented in this HashiCorp Vault + Kubernetes (HashiCorp Vault 201 - Vault for Apps in Kubernetes) course were understandable and easy to grasp. Chosen topics were exactly what I needed to be able to perform the production deployment of HashiCrop Vault inside Kubernetes. I extremely appreciate your personal interest after the course. It is clear that you care about your courses participants. Wishing best and feel free to contact me after you have new courses available. Thanks.

Hello Sam, Thank you very much for your blogs and videos about Packer and Terraform. I recently jumped into Terraform, especially for use in vSphere and I am learning every day. So while I was struggling to prepare a good Ubuntu template, I stumbled on Packer. So again, thank you very much for all your good and hard work. I absolutely believe that fine-tuning those scripts takes a lot of time.
