Lab Info
Lab exercises for this course will be conducted on your own Cloud Foundry instance. While you can install Cloud Foundry locally, this can be challenging and will consume a lot of resources on your computer. There are hosted providers that may provide free trials, but their offerings do tend to change, and may impose resource limitations. In such cases, you may have to upgrade to a paid plan to complete the labs.

I like how it is very to the point, succinct, and clear to follow along. There is no getting lost along the way about any concepts, prior to diving into the practical hands-on lab components.

I like that the material is mainly textual instead of in videos. I prefer to learn by reading, and don't like to watch videos. Only the lab exercises contain videos which is quite OK.
