Instructor Made a Course on Programming, Which Could be Pretty Bland, Very Interesting and Exciting
“Great instructor and very resourceful and knew his stuff. He made a course on programming, which could be pretty bland, very interesting and exciting due to his level of enthusiasm. Even though it is just an intro to Javascript, I left the course feeling I can confidently work my way around Javascript and figure things out on my own using the resources given to me during the course.” – Dwight C., Northeastern University (Javascript & jQuery Training)
