Great instructor. Very clear and concise. Instructor took his time and made sure we understood the topics.

Roberto Zayas, City Harvest inc.

Most of the time, we were typing in our IDEs and loading our own code in our browsers. It was real hands-on practice, and that's great for my learning style. The instructor was always there and willing to jump in and help, but was also willing to let us struggle a bit to figure things out - which helps to cement the learning. Good class!
