What Other People Say:

1000 tak for [...] et helt fantastisk kursus; Som sagt det bedste kursus, jeg nogensinde har været på (og jeg har været på mange gennem tiderne)
 -- René Hymne Muxoll, December 2016

 
"Christian is one of the developers I would very much like to work with again. I had the pleasure to work on a team with Christian for about a year. Christian have an incredible strong technical background combined with a very pleasant personality. 
I had a lot of great discussions with Christian about both technical details and team dynamics and I always felt I gained from them, most often in the form of insights or directions on how to solve problem the best possible way. He always strive to make the best possible solution for a given task and never cut corners. 
Even though he is most often right when discussing technical issues, he is never afraid to take suggestion from others when they have better solutions. 
I most definitely felt I was a better developer after working with him and I’m convinced he will add a lot of value on any team he is a part of. I hope I’ll work with him again some day"
