- I had experience working with C++ but I had never been taught in a way that was so clear and so easy to understand than in this course. I highly recommend it!Martí S.Verified Learner
- The interactive way in which this course is done is amazing and really encourages the person to learn and makes it fun. A lot of the other websites I have taken courses on usually just stack videos for you to watch and that's about it. The method here is definitely way better.Hatem S.Verified Learner
- I love this course. I learned quickly, efficiently and without much distress. The algorithms at play are a real treat to learn from, and I find this integrated learning environment to be the ideal classroom for programming. Hats off to all of you.Taylor E.Verified Learner
