Not for the faint hearted but incredibly informative and thorough. John was great and was a wealth of information. Would totally recommend this course if you want a better understanding of Javascript.
(4.30 out of 5) Michael [ 30 January, 2017 ]
Great course for an intermediate user. The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided information outside of the course which was appreciated.
(4.30 out of 5) Sophie [ 30 January, 2017 ]
Content was great. Is a lot of new concepts to take in. But continual practice should help with that.
(5.00 out of 5) Charlene G [ 30 November, 2016 ]
The course was a lot of fun and John was a great tutor. His explanations were thorough yet easy to understand, and the coding examples were great. Would definitely recommend this course to others and am considering looking into more from this company. Thanks so much John!
