Course Reviews

Excellent course and delivery. Well placed with an appropriate level of detail for the mix of experience amongst delegates. Learned a lot and now understand far better why I have been writing some of the JS I have, and more importantly how to do it better next time.

Enjoyed the JavaScript 1 course. The first day is a tad slow for experienced developers but it acted as a nice warm up, and the following days had plenty of new things to learn about.
