What others say.

  • Great introductory course for the beginner. I have a better grasp on the development languages for websites and now feel ready to take my first small step into creating my own. Thanks!

  • Such a fabulous teacher! Very clear, explained everything very well and didn’t go too quickly or too slow. I thought it was going to be a long day in the classroom but I just wanted to keep learning!

  • The instructor’s real-world knowledge and experience was exemplary. His ability to break it down into manageable pieces was what I liked most. It wasn’t your typical ‘Death by PowerPoint’ seminar. I went to learn code and I learnt code through step-by-step hands-on examples. The pace was very smooth and I didn’t feel pressured. I’d definitely return in the future and I’d also recommend this course to my work colleagues.

  • I like the higher level explanations of the material. The explaining of the underlying why. Excellent rigorous introductory training on web page fundamentals.

  • This course has a great teacher – patient and really knowledgeable. Five stars!

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the course – the pace the lecturer set, the detail and the exercises.

  • I think the information in this course was made very accessible, even for someone with as little tech savvy as I have. I also enjoyed the social experience of this course very much.

  • I’m thrilled with the course I chose, I’m thrilled with the tutor and the pace of the course and looking forward to studying two more courses I’m enrolled in.

  • The price is what makes this course so attractive – its almost half of what other educators offer.

  • Really well organised and taught course. Very knowledgeable and friendly teacher.

  • Lots of information spread out perfectly over two days in such a calm manner and not rushed and in a way that you will remember the content. Very good course delivered by a great trainer.
