Interactive questions, using SkySpark / Axon

This is my fourth course with Fantom Factory. I think I like this one the best. Not only does it teach how to use Axon, it inadvertently demonstrates the true potential of Skyspark.

Cory Pearce

Well done for completing all of our SkySpark courses Cory! Don't forget you get to keep the Journals for long term access to key reference material too!

A brilliant course for learning the ins and outs of Axon.

There definitely is a steep learning curve compared to the other course but with time and practise and answering the practise questions, it does help a whole lot to remember.

Thank you Jhan! Yes this course definitely requires dedicated time and concentration to gain the most benefit - as you found. :)
