Sample of the reviews:


I worked in some company, so I can say that this course is 100% industry oriented. The best course for learning Spring Framework. Getting replies within 24 hours. - Premang


Chad Darby has done a superb job organizing this course, and has made Spring Framework, MVC, AOP, Hibernate, Security easy to learn and use. I have a bs and ms in CS, have been developing software for 25 years, and have taken many courses over the years at the different companies I've been at and Chad is easily the best instructor I've had.

He's extremely well-organized and knowledgeable, and lays out this course in a step-by-step approach to fully cover the material and make it easy to learn. I highly recommend this course, and Chad as an instructor.

I'm adding to my review following Chad's recent updates to his course to cover Spring Boot, JPA, etc. After finishing the course originally, I found another Spring Boot class, and after working on this other class, I appreciate more what Chad has done here. He's made Spring Boot for CRUD applications with Thymeleaf very easy to follow and learn. I've taken half a dozen other software courses, and while other instructors might be good, Chad is the gold standard here. I can't recommend him highly enough. - Dave Zeltserman


This is the best tutorial I've seen so far for Spring/Hibernate, each step is well explained and the tutorial videos are made to a high standard. I highly recommend this course! - Rob


Hats off to you Chad, the best Spring fundamentals course I have done on Udemy thus far. You never disappoint. - Morebodi Modise

I have just completed this course. I found it great - talks a lot about Spring, from it very beginning to more advanced topics. I really enjoyed this course, because I could also try Eclipse (instead of IntelliJ) and see how it works connected with Tomcat. I highly recommend this course to anyone planning to learn about Spring Framework! :)

By Cosmic Sound on 9/26/2020

Absolutely loved it!!! This course is awesome - there is so much content covering a ton of Spring and Hibernate topics from a practical perspective. I liked playing back the videos at 1.5x to 2x and loved the excitement and energy Chad brought to each and every lesson. The review first and then do a hands-on approach works great because you see it twice and have a better chance of understanding and retaining concepts.
I'd love to see the instructor offer more courses, especially on AWS!
Chad, you're a gifted instructor so please, please, please do the world a huge favor and create some awesome AWS courses :-)

By Kevin Noon on 9/10/2020

The best course I have taken on line. He breaks down the information in small chucks and builds on that knowledge showing how the code works in the background and then shows to the "simple" way to do it.

By Rajani on 9/4/2020

It was good listening to Chad Darby. This course is very good for beginners to learn Spring, Hibernate, REST web service and Spring Boot.

By Varun Sharma on 8/25/2020

The course is very nice. and the best thing is that i have learnt skill which is in demand in industry.
I will must go through the next Angular and boot course.
Sir! Please release course on microservices using spring boot.

By Pradeep Panda on 6/5/2020

Started from zero and now in a position to compete with the experienced person in the Industry. Strongly recommend the course for the beginner as the tutor here, explain's each and every concept from ground level to the actual working of the code behind the scene.
Happy Coding!!

By Rano Zulfikar on 11/7/2020

Learned a lot in this course! Some of the copy and paste were a bit redundant and made it slightly difficult to follow but overall the knowledge to be gained from this course is valuable. Thank you so much.

By Saddam on 10/10/2020

Nice Course Covers All The Topics.....
Saying just Thank you to Chad for this course is not enough.....

By Navin on 6/23/2020

Thnakyou so much Chad!! Best tutorial I have seen so far for Spring&Hiberante course. The course is well organised and he makes easy to understand the diffcult concepts.

By Naveen Kumar on 8/1/2020

Honestly, the course was amazing. I'd definitely recommend anyone to take the course if they're looking for any Spring courses.

By Jahidul Momin on 11/7/2020

It is a good course to get in the spring marathon. Having a few advanced features (i.e. Spring security auth by token or some advanced rest topics) will make the difference. Just a suggestion. Thanks for the effort though. Appreciated the contents and quick responses from the instructor.

By Ahmed A on 10/7/2020

Excellent ! Chad is very pedagogue and explains very well the concepts behind Spring, Hibernate, Spring boot. He and his team answers very quickly to questions. I liked this course
