Hi, I'm Neil Anderson, and my mission is to build the best Cloud and Data Center systems engineers possible.

I built my career by learning about IT technologies through books and online resources and it’s my passion now to help you do the same.

You know how some instructors seem to get a kick out of making things complicated to make themselves look smarter than you? I love to make things as easy to understand as possible and seeing you get that lightbulb moment.

I'm proud of my 'Top Responder' tag online. I genuinely care about giving you the best experience possible, both in the quality of my training and in ongoing support.

Nothing makes me feel better than hearing back from students who I've helped move on to the next level in their career. It gives me huge satisfaction to know I've played a part in you achieving your goals.

My experience:

Since 2007 my main focus has been delivery of technical training and development of course content for large enterprise and service provider customers such as NetApp, Cisco, Verizon and IBM. I train the engineers who design and implement the largest Cloud and Data Center deployments throughout the Asia Pacific region and the rest of the world.

I also provide consultancy to clients and mentoring for the systems engineers in the company I work for.

Prior to focusing on training I worked in the field for over 10 years in a variety of systems and network engineering and IT management roles.
