- It was a great experience, because the course introduce the concepts in a way that is very easy to understand and the hands-on are great to get a feelings of what the language is. Is a great course to start off or maybe remember how the syntax worked.Carlos L.Verified Learner
- No fluff, this was better than the few coding classes I've taken in college. It breaks every minor concept down to its simplest form, which avoids confusion. The interface is fantastic.Michael R.Verified Learner
- I enjoyed the interactive experience. The course is very well organized and briefly explained for someone who wants to get familiar with a new language.Anik T.Verified Learner
