Blazing Cloud Blazing Cloud expert training for innovation

Blazing Cloud is a consulting firm based in San Francisico, California. We offer in-person, local classes as well as on-site and remote training. 

Many of our classes apply an innovative teaching approach that is gaining widespread adoption, called Test-First Teaching, where students implement exercises that will cause pre-defined tests to pass. Many senior software engineers in the field find that testing is an effective way to learn a new language or API. This methodology also provides a good introduction to best practices for people who are new to testing.
