  • Excellent Introduction to C#. I learned more from this than in my first programming class as an undergrad.

  • The course was very comprehensive. It covers almost all of the topics I need to know to start coding. Took me a couple weeks to work through all of lessons, but I now feel ready to work on my own projects.

  • The C# course is great for an overall understanding of what C# has to offer, how to think as a C# programmer, how the syntax works, and how to use it in different scenarios. Through this course, I was guided well with examples and help where needed.
