Everyone in the class felt Emily was technically brilliant, that her understanding of OpenLDAP was impressive and that her knowledge was immensely valuable. It’s difficult to describe how quickly Emily established credibility with our technical resources.  I can say that we’re glad we picked Symas and we’re incredibly happy with the LDAP class.
