Your Training Lead

Lead trainer Mario Hernandez is a regular speaker and trainer at tech conferences with over ten years of experience as a Front-End Developer.

Mario’s personal philosophy as a trainer is to be accessible and available to all students before, during, and after the workshop. To maximize time, attendees will receive detailed instructions on how to set up their training environment. This ensures our time during training is used to learn about the topic at hand vs. fixing technical issues. All students will get copies of the training recordings and full access to the training curriculum in an online form. Our curriculums are constantly being updated and these updates will automatically be available to students at no additional cost.
