(4.40 out of 5) Meng C [ 18 July, 2018 ]
I thoroughly enjoyed the little tidbits of history adding to the information. I think perhaps prompting how to find out which functions to use would be useful.
(4.60 out of 5) Brian N [ 18 July, 2018 ]
Enjoyed it very much! It's great having a real teacher teach a course that can get quite complicated and involved. I felt that I had to do allot of catching up as I am a TOTAL novice when it come to all things Javascript. It would be good to do some baby-steps before we get into the nitty-gritty.
(4.70 out of 5) Marcel R [ 17 July, 2018 ]
The course has just enough content for the two days without being overwhelming. Definitely helps if you have an understanding of HTML and CSS. The instructor provided clear commentary on the various topics and was more than happy to re-visit and explain concepts.

The course was great and very informative. Linda knows the course very well and provided lots of tips on top of the course contents.
