"Mr. Zhuk brings the wealth and depth of years of Java development and training experience. His ability to adapt this course to one that tied the classical Java language instruction to our real-world challenges was impressive and well received. I consider this the best training investment Iíve made for my staff in over 15 years of Software Engineering management."

- Jay DiGiovanni, Director of Software Development, TV Guide

This is the first class I have attended in which the instructor stayed on task and the actual subject of the class, and had real world knowledge and experience to share with the students. Thank you for a well taught and challenging class.

Thank you for one of the most interesting classes I have attended. I consider myself to be knowledgeable in computers however, your class taught me more than I could have imagined. Thank you!!!

SOA Workshops/Training for a Jeppesen/Boeing branch in Neu-Isenburg (Frankfurt), Germany, June, 2008

"Thank you very much for the introduction to SOA and Enterprise Architecture, it was very helpful for me to learn about these initiatives! I think this is definitely the right way to go and will be beneficial to all of us in the future." - Andreas Truffel, Technical Data

"It was an introduction to a new topic, SOA. This will be a useful tool for Jeppesen's future projects. I've learned more about other departments in the company and their application structure and project philosophy. Especially helpful were the concepts of the re-usable generic packages and SOA recommended practices." - Stephanie Kane, ITS

"I enjoyed to take part in all 4 workshops here in Neu-Isenburg. Hope to see you soon again proceeeding with the next workshops." - Josef Ploeckl, BGS Data Services


SOA and Enterprise Architecture Training for a Jeppesen/Boeing branch in Gotenburg, Sweden, March, 2008

Dear Jeff,
Many thanks for your contribution last week. The training was very well received by our architects, analysts and developers and I believe you have their feedback first hand. Regarding the workshops, I am positive that it was the best possible internal information and promotion activity in our organization. We have explained the concepts of enterprise architecture, business architecture and business process modeling, to the key stakeholders from business and development organizations, and I hope this will form the basis for our successful collaboration. The session with development team leaders about the architectural governance and best development practices was perfectly timed. Your support and flexibility is highly appreciated!

Looking forward to working together,
Sergey Tiourine, Architect, Jeppesen Systems AB


A set of training workshops on Enterprise Services for Jeppesen/Boeing in Englewood, Colorado, 2007

Jeff,
I just wanted to provide some feedback on the sessions you have been facilitating on Enterprise Services/Service Oriented Architecture. The sessions I have been able to attend have provided good information that is useful to me and our group. I believe it is a a great opportunity, in an open forum, to understand what other organizations are doing to move to SOA. In my opinion, there are very few opportunities to do this within the company. I see a value in our participation in these sessions as we work to provide value to business processes and help in removing the silos.
Keep up the good work!!!
-Ken Gochenour, Business Analyst, Technology Integration Services (TIS)

Awesome teacher! Jeff definitely has a gift to make JAVA seem simple. There is a difference between a teacher and an instructor. Jeff has a gift to teach! He definitely imparted knowledge and understanding.
