4 reviews for Javascript 1

  1. Donald | Digital Manager

    The course was very good at explaining the fundamental principles and filling the gaps in my knowledge. A very good starting point to JavaScript that has provided the foundations and guiding principles that I was after.

  2. Phil | Database Developer

    An excellent very well taught course. I found the structure and the balance between presenting and practical work to be just right and I believe I have learnt more from the course than I thought I would at the beginning. I believe that doing practical exercises on the course are most important to testing whether you understand what has been presented.

  3. David | Technical Team Manager | Gov.uk

    Very good introduction course and taught well. Good content and pace.

  4. David | IT Consultant

    Trainer was excellent. His delivery and interesting diversions were a joy to listen to.
