I've really enjoyed taking this class, it's what I expected from an advanced class. The instructor, Renee was very knowledgeable about the materials that she presented. She answered all questions by giving good examples. I really like the class exercises especially the code retreat, they're applicable to the real world. I would recommend this class to my colleagues.

Good content, and each day was better than the last.

Jackie - Opower

I thought this course was really well done. The instructors were knowledgeable about the subject matter, very good at thinking on their feet, and good at teaching. I really admired their ability to explain concepts clearly and concisely as well as their ability to live-code in front of a class -- both tall orders!

I think the course was great. The instructor was very knowledgable and patient. I think this was definitely worth my time. The exercises were all very relevant and interesting. I also appreciated the hard push for TDD. I wish we had taken this course a year ago.
