"UmbX is the Best...

“The UmbX Workshop I recently attended was by far the best training course I have ever been on. The amount of things I learnt in such a short space of time completely blew my mind. The course exercises provide you with great hands on experience, specifically the Azure Load Balancing and Azure Setup workshops. The information I’ve obtained from the workshop is priceless, not only to me but my clients.”
