Benjamin
From London, UK
“An absolutely amazing course. It has a clear structure and as the slides are present I do not have to make notes. Also - all of the important definitions are being accompanied by demonstrations in practice of the tool by which I could understand the true meaning of them. The way the course is presented is nice to follow, language is impeccable and the speed is not to fast. Usually in other courses from Udemy I can see a definition of a problem directly followed by example with a lot of fluff, but those extra unneeded false interactions with learners make the course only longer and makes me usually loose my focus. In this course I did not experience it at all. It was to the point and I have actually learned something that I can directly use in my work. Thank you! PS I will for sure follow the other courses of the instructor!”
