|6/22/2017 14:53:56||3||maybe add some extra 'bonus' exercises/tasks in the lab sessions, so if you finish early you can investigate other exercises instead of starting the next exercise :)||4||sometimes the slides listing recipe variables are very dry. |
Maybe it is useful to use already existing recipes to illustrate the
use of some of the variables.
(e.g. the augeus(? forgot exact name) recipes are almost similar to the
recipes we created, maybe those recipes could be used to illustrate the
variables with more concrete example)

|6/22/2017 15:12:33||3||Well timed for the agenda.|
A good technical training can never last too long :-)
|I got a deeper understandingof the yocto architecture than i was expecting||5||Yes||5||5||Just the documentation would have been a painful journey. The instructor was definitely a help in understanding and following.||5||Company organized. Comments will be given to the company||4||Virtual machines would have been fine for portability (the participant can continue exercising at the end of the training using his already configured environment||5||Company organized. Comments will be given to the company||5||More than I expecting!! |
I know that I need to learn more.
Future will tell.
|7||5||5||Not applicable - My management made the decision||Free Electrons chosen by my management||Company decision||Answered patinetly and competently all questions (without deviating)||4||5||Difficult enough to ensure the participant follows the course. |
Really well done.

|6/23/2017 19:43:13||2||I think the course should have been slightly longer and should have included a few more labs with more details with respect to what exactly we were doing and what is the purpose of the specific steps we are taking.||I did not have any experience with embedded linux and the training was already focusing on the expectation that there is some basic knowledge.||4||The lecture document pretty much rescues somebody who just wants to learn about open embedded linux, but has very little experience or knowledge about it. The latest labs were not extremely explanatory and then focusing back on the lecture helps to be able to finalise your work. More examples of what each attributes in the recipes/packages we create can do would have been great, since the lecture mentions many others, but the examples were just focusing on what was necessary strictly for the practical paper.||5||The instructor was extremely insightful and has a good knowledge base. Unfortunately, due to being perhaps too familiar with the topic it was at times hard to follow him due to having focused mostly on the higher level details.||4||More details for the inexperienced people (basics) would be helpful. Or maybe before accepting this training, offering the basics training too and making sure that the people are aware of the fact that the basics training is mandatory before.||5||The room was very hot, but this is not the trainer's fault. Also, I think that the group should be more in equilibrium, so that experienced people sit together with the no-so-experienced ones and support one another if the equipment is to be shared. Also, some enforced breaks to socialize should have been ensured. This is the only way for the trainer to catch up on what is the expertise of the attendees and listen to what are their difficulties and try to improve the conditions on the go.||3||I personally had a few issues with the equipment not responding, but other than that, everything was acceptable for the given tasks.||2||4||5||For me it served as self-improvement and getting more confident to be able to apply for positions in certain prototype projects that I would like to be part of.||6||5||Embedded Linux training|
Linux kernel and driver development training
|4||The 2 lab exercises that had an actual visible man-machine interaction. Also, getting the explanations of the abstraction layers behind all our actions (outside of the course) was extremely interesting for me.||Sharing the equipment with somebody else.||Trainer, Language, Not applicable - My management made the decision||Did not know about before||Linux board support package development, Build environment support, Technical support, Bug fixing, Technology and architecture consulting, On-site engineering||The trainer was always open to support and questions.||1||5||There should have been more and they should be carried in a more interactive manner. If several groups have finished specific milestones of the exercise, then a brainstorming break should be organised to check out how much are the others behind and why, which problems are, which were the interesting/important steps to be noticed.||To me they definitely were above average when creating them, but once some knowledge base was built, they got easier to understand. Again, perhaps one day of forming the knowledge base should be dedicated.||4||3||I think the ratio of theory/practice was ok.||From a foreign country|
