Great course, tackled some really tricky content and put it in an easy to understand format. Thanks!


You did a really great job! Best course ever!


And the teacher explains very well!


I'd taken the instructor's Python courses and found them a little slow coming from a coding background, although I thought they were fantastic for someone without much programming experience as she explained fundamental concepts very well. Her clear, concise style really shone in this course. While listening to the videos I followed along, making a Django site of my own, and found her instruction invaluable. Codeschool has never let me down, and I'm continually impressed by the caliber of the instructors.
