This course has helped boost my confidence to such a great extent. It made me realize that whether you are building a production level web application or working on any personal project if you know your fundamentals straight and well you can very comfortably develop amazing things. Thanks to Colt who has the most simplified and intuitive way of teaching any concept and the entire TA team for all the help and an amazing learning experience overall!

This tutorial is perfect to get you started with web dev. It is pretty basic but that is more than enough to get you into how things work and help you make your first steps in web dev.

You guys really know what you're doing when it come to what us technical guys are after nowadays. This was exactly what I wanted in fact its what every tech or IT guy I know would want. I really like this product too, all of the courses are great. I guess I will be checking out more of what you do in the software worlds too.

Courses are good, not just in the IT niche. I'm a keep fit nut too. I like those ones also, even got a few of those to help with me training. Brains and muscles.
