The course was well presented and the presenter Marco was extremely enthusiastic which made learning easier.
(5.00 out of 5) Donné D [ 07 August, 2017 ]
Mark has been able to translate the concepts at a pace that kept us totally awake and still understanding how it works. He is very good at explaining the concepts very clear and following a structure to learn and base a new concept on the previous concept. I would attend any course the he presents in the future.
