I think this was a very cool and fun experience. The short videos made lessons digestible and easy. The projects were also a great and made sure that the concepts sank in. There was also a great support system if you ever had a question that you couldn’t solve yourself.

This programme is much better than I thought it would be. Everything is explained clearly, making it super easy to understand. The best part is the continuous practice you get in every section of the course, so you can see yourself improving all the time. I was so afraid of starting programming because I didn’t think I could do it, but this course has given me the confidence to continue studying hard.

Shared G.

This is a great intro to programming and there’s so much great content in this course and really great instruction! I love that we have some workable projects as we progress through the class. Additionally, the project reviews, the live help, 1 on 1’s, access to the forums, etc. make it such that there’s always help when you need it and it makes the process of learning on your computer in your own space (be it a library or your dining room) less daunting. I’d highly recommend this course 🙂
