Now that winners are out let me say a big THANKS to all of you who submitted.

It's been painful to decide who had to be in the first 5 as I wanted to award everybody.

We even had to call it a draw between 4th and 5th place basically adding one more winner.

We had lots of fun watching your videos and definitely we have been overwhelmed by the effort you all put in your videos.

I mean, Bedri re-interpreted our logo and Jesus even involved his pets  :D  - Thanks guys, it's been a mix of :blink: and :rolleyes: and :D.

Since this contest has been this successful, who knows, we might be doing it again soon. The weather in Dubai is beautiful for another 5-6 months :P

 

Costin, congrats to you, waiting for you here, your dinner is on me :D

I poured my heart & soul (and time) into my videos... If longer videos were prefered you should have been more specific (as evidenced by the winners) :(

Jesus

The length of the video has little to do with the selection criteria.

Of course the more you tell about your experience the better but definitely the length is not the only thing to take into account.

Clarity, Contents, Originality and Comprehensiveness are the most important criteria.

@arunthomas115 did a wonderful long video with lots of details and time put into it. Still didn't make it by very little.

There must be only one winner otherwise this wouldn't be a contest.

Please do not take our decision as something against you! You know we at eLS and the entire community loved your videos.

It was My fault Because I didn't have the Foresight to understand what was being requested. (You wanted an actual "review" & not just a cool testimonial video.)

Sorry about that...

for what it's worth, @matugm, your last two videos were my favorite.  My wife and I especially like the cat video!

@jasonmac Thanks, looking at the good side of things this means I won't have to spend almost 22 hours traveling (train + waiting + airplane) :)

It would be a pleasure with Armando if i be the first.But I still want to visit Armando and the team at Dubai or somewhere :D Besides @Armando do not worry that we all never understand wrong the decisions we did not become first. As a result this is a competition and a festival.

 

Besides I want to work in this family in the future Who knows ;)

Hello,

I wanted to follow up and publicly announce that the promised items were shipped to @tweety, see below. Now, we're waiting for Jimmy to receive the items and post a photo of his new awesome t-shirt :)

It's my understanding that some of you expressed the desire to get eLS merchandise as well. Sorry, but I'm not authorized to open these for public commercialization. However, the eLS team is very open to suggestions and I'm sure they will take into consideration the possibility of making these available for purchase for their students. 

Wish you all the best ! 

Thank you,

Costin

Hello eLS community,

I'm a little late to the party, it's been about 2 months since this happened but I finally managed to get the time to put this together. What follows is a small review of my trip, where I met the eLearnSecurity Dubai team. I will not talk about my schedule, you can read all about that in the eLS blog post: https://blog.elearnsecurity.com/mission-accomplished.html . Instead I want to say a few words of the people I met during my stay there.

I am honored to have met the Dubai team. They are great individuals that form a very powerful team. They are cheerful and very open, they are good communicators and with them part of the company, it's no surprise that it continues to grow at an accelerated pace. 

The highlight of my trip was the meeting with Armando, the founder of eLearnSecurity. It was truly a pleasure in meeting him and I was impressed with his humbleness. He's the driving force that made the company in what it is today, one of the leading security training providers, but he doesn't forget where he started from. If I had to pick a word to describe him, I wouldn't be wrong saying he's a friend.

It was an amazing trip, made possible by these awesome people. 

Please find below a small video summary of my stay in Dubai: 

 

Thank you, eLearnSecurity ! 

 

P.S. Be sure to pay close attention, you could be the next winner !
