“Rated you 5 stars! Your course was amazing. I bought your course, got started on Saturday, went through all the videos and exercises. Then re-watched it again on Sunday at 1.5 speed…and got a job Monday working with Splunk! Every technical question they threw at me I was able to answer including example SPL. This was an amazing life changing decision to take this course.” – Neil
