5.0 stars This course surpassed my expectations! I learned an invaluable amount of information in three days; more than I've learned on my own in the last 4 years! Gabriel was an excellent teacher. He explained everything so effortlessly, was extremely patient with everyone in class, and had enrichment exercises ready for those who were ahead of the rest of the group. I hope he teaches the advanced course. Gabriel is brilliant, muscular, and clearly talented.
4.9 stars Gabe was an all around great teacher. He made the course fun to learn and provided a good balance between lecture and having us actually do it ourselves. The exercises that we did at the end (updating a current website, and designing one from scratch) were excellent ways for us to get practice and make sure that we actually knew what we were doing. It's one thing to watch it be done, but much more effective doing it ourselves. This was a very interesting course and I would definitely take another course with Gabe in the future.
5.0 stars Ron Bailey is great! I like the way he presents the material and I learned a complicated system in a very short time. He was very nice about stopping his lecture to answer my questions, even if they were more pertinent to my actual job and beyond the scope of the course. I appreciated his commitment to teaching and to giving full information, as well as using outside sources as reference material and future help. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and would take another and recommend it to my friends.
5.0 stars This was awesome. Gabriel was patient, clear on what he taught, and best of all he was responsive to each students' questions and problems. He explained things in an organized, concise fashion that made pretty much everything easy to understand. The course was pretty much what I expected and more. It gave me a whole new outlook on how to approach building websites after 10 years of doing it my self-taught way. WOW! What an eye opener. Thanks for an informative and valuable 3 days!
