Work on projects proven to boost retention
Refined over many cohorts for an optimal learning experience
I didn't expect to learn much in a 4 session Python course, but Art's teaching style was very fitting for me. As the Chinese proverb states: Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I'll remember. Involve me, I'll understand.
