A1. Good job explaining, also nice tips and tricks for exam.
Cristian Bizon

A1. Things I didn't like, or I consider can be improved: - Try to make attendants copy-paste less for the labs. The best lab was the one with network-policies, where we had to figure out the .yaml file ourselves. - Provide official documentation links for each module. e.g pod link from official documentation for the pod part, the same for deployments, services, etc. - Explain first the concept and then ask about it, not the other way around.

Says our CEO-
“It is an interesting story and dates back half a century. My father started a manufacturing business in India in the 1960's for import substitute electromechanical components such as microswitches. German and Japanese goods were held in high esteem so he named his company Essen Deinki (Essen is a well known industrial town in Germany and Deinki is Japanese for electric company). His products were very good quality and the fact that they sounded German and Japanese also helped. He did quite well. In 1970s he branched out into electronic products and again looked for a German name. This time he chose Koenig, and Koenig Electronics was born. In 1990s after graduating from college I was looking for a name for my company and Koenig Solutions sounded just right. Initially we had marketed under the brand of Digital Equipment Corporation but DEC went out of business and we switched to the Koenig name. Koenig is difficult to pronounce and marketeers said it is not a good choice for a B2C brand. But it has proven lucky for us.” – Says Rohit Aggarwal (Founder and CEO - Koenig Solutions)
