  • The C# course was an excellent course to get up to speed quickly with the programming language. I loved the hands on approach, similar to immersion learning when learning a new language. I feel like my time was used wisely when I went through this course. Having the hands on experience while learning helped to solidify the concepts of C# in my mind.
