Preparing for next course
I really like the speaker Tom Armitage, good course.
It was a great course. It made me know more about computer coding language.
It explains it slow enough for someone with no coding experience and dyslexia to understand.
Very well explained lectures. And the manner in which He builds upon previous concepts is brilliant. Not to mention the practical programming on display.
