It was a great class taught by Ruben. It was great the way he used his experience and use cases to communicate to the class.
The lady at the front really nice. Everthing was always stocked up: Helpful
Only issue I had is with lab completion. Some labs didn't show up as complete which left me confused. Other than that the material itself is amazing and the hands on experience is extremely useful.
Great learning center. My first online class experience -- went better than I anticipated.
Course Material was well presented and labs were interesting and hand on experience
