Comments

Small sample of the comments provided by students privately through CodeMachine's training feedback platform.

Extremely clear, concise and cool presentation style. One of the best instructors I ever had (and I am 61 years old...).

Windows Kernel Internals and Rootkits Techniques Course

Nobody teaches Windows Internals like T.Roy. Not only does he know this stuff inside out, he is a fantastic and engaging presenter and does an excellent job of teaching, what is otherwise, a very dry topic.

Windows Kernel Internals Course

T.Roy was fantastic. I enjoyed his diatribes and sidebars about current research. He is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent. An entire course could have been based around his treatment of the state of computer security.

Windows Kernel Rootkits Course

His presentation is extremely engaging. He asks questions, he annotates his slides, and he draws diagrams on the whiteboard. All extremely useful.

Windows Kernel Internals Course

T.Roy gave every question a deep dive answer. We could not stump him!

Windows Kernel Internals Course

T.Roy is probably the best Windows Kernel expert I have ever met. He is able to explain tremendously complicated concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. This is probably one of the best courses I have taken.

Windows Kernel Development Course

The most valuable part of this class is the hands on debugging of dumps with T.Roy there to offer insight and give tips. I was very impressed with T.Roy's knowledge of stuff that I wouldn't think anyone outside of Microsoft would know.

Windows Kernel Debugging Course

This was an extremely knowledgeable instructor, and he demonstrated a very high level of presentational skill. I learned a good deal about presentation style simply by observing him.
