Learner Testimonials

"I loved the case studies. It was so interesting to see the application of the technology in such diverse industries. Plus the use of outside tools (e.g. canvanizer, blockly-games) to practice (i.e. play) in order to learn the concepts that were discussed gave the course a real hands-on feel to it."
