"Fredrik is one of those few developers that excel at both being an extremely strong developer and at the same time having very strong social skills. He is very active in the Python community and stands in high regard by his peers, and he is also a very appreciated conference speaker in the subject as well. I have enjoyed working with Fredrik over periods of times in the same company and would gladly and without hesitation be happy to work with him on any day"

"Even though I have worked with Python there were a lot of new things for me." - "Fredrik was very well prepared, and the koan-style excercises were great!" - "You're so awesome... and if you had any longer hair, I would marry you!" - "Awesome course, it would have taken for ever to learn this on my own - I learned a lot in a very short time."
