What students say:
"Mike was my favorite part of the course. This might be due to my passion for coding, but I do believe it was amplified by the wealth of knowledge displayed by the instructor. I was truly inspired by the depth of experience he has. Seeing an instructor code with such ease was reminiscent of a conductor instructing an orchestra. He deserves all good karma." - Student from July 2018
