Rated 4.6/5 based on 57 student reviews.

I will be honest - I came in with minimal expectations for my ability to learn Javascript in a few sessions, and was somewhat shocked by A) my ability to pick things up quickly and B) my enthusiasm for coding in such a short period of time.

Friendly and encouraging instructor who made the class fun. Lots of practice time! I'm glad to take all the exercises with me to help me remember what I learned.

Very useful. I really liked the instructor. He is experienced and knows how to solve all kinds of problems students bring up. Unlike other instructors who only knows what's in solution files, he is open to various ways of solving problems. Great!

The curriculum was well organized but still flexible to the individual needs of the class members. The instructor really knows the technology and was able to help me grasp concepts that were over and above the curriculum.

Very approachable and hands-on.
