Our Learners Agree
“Awesome learning experience for someone without a lot of computer science background.”
“Great beginning class for someone like me that does ZERO testing.”
“The material, the instructors, the examples, all were excellent!”
“Success! I never used pytest before and I feel like I could use it now, at least the basic functions.”
“Great job accommodating everyone with various skill levels, and helping people get caught up.”
“I knew nothing about pytest when I came in, and now I feel like I can at the very least write basic tests for my code.”
“Very clear examples and easy to work through.”
“GREAT mix of instruction lead, then letting people try on their own.”
