Its been great. I found it very affordable, first of all. Secondly, their real people mentors are so readily available, either by email or slack, so it is really nice to be able to ask questions and get timely answers. I need that help a lot! And their curriculum is not boring at all, they make it fun and enjoyable. So I highly recommend it. I have also done supplement courses on Udemy, which I think has been good to diversify how I learn. Hearing from different voices. I hope thats helpful!!!
