5 / 5 stars

This class helped me understand the basics of actionscript along with some advanced techniques. I was definitely happy with the overall experience.

- , Sterling Ledet & Associates

The class was small and we had wonderful access to the trainer, with a lot of individual attention. The instructor is obviously an expert and was intuitive and quick with an answer or further discussion when we asked questions. The Adobe Connect software was solid which was my main concern. I have been part of many webex and gotoMeeting events that have crashed the server! The chocolates were a nice bonus! ;-)

- , Powell's Books

I was looking for a class that would help me bridge the gap between VB 6 and VB.NET. This class did an excellent job of providing that knowledge.
