This teacher is above most. I have over 60 courses between Udemy and LinkedIn Learning. Some people are just natural teachers. His teaching style is informative and non-intimidating but still tries to get you to understand how programming works and how to think like a programmer.

Good clear beginner course. Good recording, clear course content, nice and easy to follow along with and proper amount of repeating the terms to make sure it sticks.

There was a lot of good information that was helpful. My only issue is not having text to follow along in the powerpoints. Sitting on one slide for the whole 5 minutes doesn't help portray the information as well as having slides for each talking point.
