As this was my first programming course, I feel the confidence I gained from being able to understand the language will help in the future from the perspective of being able to continue to grow as a programmer. The skills I have gained are transferable to other languages.

It helped me understand HTML and taught me how to create web pages.
Would recommend it to anyone wanting to start on web design or web development.

Kai Pin Lim

HTML Graduate

I felt it was a valuable learning experience, and it was a great help in solidifying my own computer knowledge, as I taught myself most of what I know by pulling apart my older computers and put them back together again. It was straight forward and easy to navigate through it.
