Thank you so much for being knowledgeable and explaining in a manner to be actually understood. I’ve clicked on many videos and couldn’t decipher anything for the life of me. I’m registered for a class that is to start March. I always like to be ahead and have a good handle before class. By the time the class start, I probably won’t even need it; other than for the certificate.

Richard Smart says:

Awesome course, I’m loving it. I particularly love listening to you solve teething problems (eg the missing z.R) – from someone relatively new to programming and trying to achieve it without being in a classroom with direct access to tutors who can help, its encouraging to see how easily some problems can be fixed with a bit of logic and perseverance. It’s very easy to spend significant amounts of time trying to problem solve some infuriatingly basic things and end up giving up.
