Who is this course for?

Programmers looking to gain a deeper understanding of the Axon Programming Language, without application to SkySpark.

How does this compare to SkySpark Essentials?

We have custom designed each training syllabus, to meet the learning objectives for different audience types. This makes us uniquely different in the marketplace and so our eLearning cannot be directly compared.

The main benefit is that you receive relevant high quality training for your needs!
