I felt like it was a great introduction. He went a little faster than I liked but it allowed us to learn more in a few hours.

I was very disappointed in the class. It should have been called Web Design 101 not Programming for Non-Programmers. What was presented did not match the description of the course nor my expectations. I left at the first break.

Instructor was terrific! Really knowledgeable and informative, would definitely come back for another class taught by him. The facilities were also super nice (appreciated the coffee & tea in the kitchen!) Just a personal preference, but I wish the class just dealt with HTML & CSS since JavaScript was way over my head - not a knock on the instructor at all, there just didn't seem to be enough time to really dive into it, so it might have been better if all 4 hours were devoted to learning & practicing CSS & HTML.
