    Excellent Video, Frank. As Ben Y has just commented, your sessions are far better than the MOOCs of professional training companies. Simply superb!
    Request you to kindly make a video on ‘Careers in Cloud Computing’ and Emerging Technologies, so that all aspiring candidates can benefit from the same, please.
