"FNB Digital needed a crash course on Domain Driven Design. We contacted KRS and they structured a short training course for us. The course was great! Lorraine and Alain showed in depth knowledge of the subject matter. They broke down what is quite a complex topic into easily digestible chunks. Thanks for the great training!"
