The subject I learned can be found on video at other places on the web. But to have an instructor led course is priceless. The live touch makes all the difference.

Excellent up to date course material and friendly, expert instructors.

It was challenging, but not overwhelming. I feel like I know enough that I can start using PHP right away. I feel like I have a good foundation on which to build.
