|2/8/2013 13:33:59||2||I think the duration was a little bit short for the amount of information that was presented.

need at least a week to practice all what we have learnt. I even
suggest people read specific material (chapter, articles, not the
slides!!) in advance||Pros:|
I liked the times when the instructor said "in my experience" and gave a clear recommendation on what has gone right and wrong in his real work.
Avoid too much slide per shot. blend more labs with the slides. It is also a good idea the instructor solves the lab on the projector and show everybody the best way do it.
use fewer slides
get people's experience in advance so that the training can be customized
engage the audience more

|2/11/2013 0:27:48||4||Though the quality of the course was good, I felt a little bit saturated by the end.||4||Good document, could be maybe a little bit more verbose.||4||4||Yes, I'll definitely be using it as a reference.||5||Very knowledgeable, clearly had a lot of experience, was able to give good explanations and answer any questions.||4||There
were a lot of slides so the instructor went through pretty fast, but I
think this was necessary to get through the material. Also gave nice
behind-the-scenes explanation of the linux community, and acting as a
guide to the kernel and looking into the code on the projector was very
Also we covered the git section the first days and cloned the git repo to get the kernel instead of downloading the tarball, this was a good idea.
|5||I don't think there was even one question Jean couldn't answer.||4||4||Very good, the Calao boards didn't require much time to get going, so we could get into the practicals without too much hassle.||3||5||Maybe a bit more explanation of block devices and how they differ from character devices would be good.||4||Use C/Linux all the time and sometimes have to do kernel work so it'll definitely be useful. Also have a personal interest in kernel and driver development.||4||6||Very good, was a bit tired by the end but I guess that's a good sign.||1||Think the scope is fine the way it is.||5||Not applicable - My management made the decision||Free Electrons chosen by my management||mainly training i'm interested in at the moment||Yeah, very helpful, but also adjusted to our level.||4||5||Very important part of the overall course, as doing just lectures would be monotonous. It was great to be routinely compiling the kernel with different configurations and going through the process of writing a driver.||A good level, i think.||3||3||The right balance I think, about 50/50 in both the morning and afternoon sessions.||From a foreign country|
