Praise for Dr. Payne's Python courses:

"Inspired" - This is an inspiring course taught by an inspired teacher. The examples are well-chosen -- demonstrating principles through engaging, colorful projects rather than by teaching abstract principles first. While I wish the instructor weren't quite so repetitiously exuberant, this is at worst a minor stylistic blemish and might even be a plus for kids viewing it. — Kent Osband, Udemy student

"Excellent path into Python" Not just for kids...use this course as the perfect Python primer. Clear examples, that build quickly into programs, leading to learning challenges. Bryson's delivery is well paced and good fun. — Sean Jon Darcy, Udemy student

“Dr. Bryson Payne is a computer scientist and professor of the highest caliber, and with Teach Your Kids to Code, he brings the power of computers within easy reach for learners young and old."—Dr. Antonio Sanz Montemayor, Informatics Professor, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spain

“The concepts in Teach Your Kids to Code can help any young person enhance their college prospects and expand their career opportunities."—Dr. Raj Sunderraman, Department Chair of Computer Science, Georgia State University

[For the Book version on Amazon] “Dr. Payne set us on the path that led us to our dream jobs! With Teach Your Kids to Code, he's providing parents and teachers everywhere the chance to do the same for the next generation of creative problem-solvers."—Shah and Susan Rahman, Riot Games
