I absolutely loved this course predominantly because of the instructor. Juan is such a pleasure to talk to, and shares the wealth of knowledge he has on the subject very willingly. He definitely goes above and beyond in answering questions and introducing new plugins and scripts.

I thought Juan was a great coach. I had to withdraw from the class on the third week because this is not the route I want to take with my career. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this instructor.
