True to its name, the course was really for beginners. If you've ever had computer science as a subject or have a general understanding of technology, the course material will seem a lot familiar. But, if you are a complete newbie to tech, must go for this course. The way David teaches is quite engaging and you'd really enjoy it.

I am really satisfied about this course and I highly recommend it.

It is well explained and easy to follow for a beginner. Lessons last about an hour and are well organized. They give a useful overview on hardwares, softwares, multimedia, web development and programming and leave you with the desire to discover more about technology. Can't wait to go ahead and enroll to more classes!

I think he is a very good communicator and teacher. He is able to keep you focussed on the object of the lesson with a simple but effective language without redundancies or difficult terms.

Thank you!
