  • This is a great course on object-oriented programming in C#. It helped me understand the principles of OOP so much better than I ever had before.

  • I appreciated the way it guided me through complex ideas in perfectly sized chunks. The exercises and projects are very well thought out and thoroughly teach the concept at hand. I paid way too much for a competitor to just play me videos, and these interactive exercises are so necessary. 10/10, I absolutely recommend.
