"This guy just rocks! Tim Mangan is the Pete Townshend of the App-V world. He was with Softricity early on to build the platform and created the first App-V training program for the company. He knows the product inside and out."

" I just finished attending a training with Tim on App-V. Having been to a number of these types of workshops, I can say that this was top-notch. The training was exceptional... no question went unanswered, and he made it a point that we understand the concepts presented. He has tremendous patience, always ensuring that we understood before moving forward. The course material was delivered at a comfortable pace. He is also simply a nice person to be around. I strongly recommend Tim as your App-V instructor."
