Must say that this was a very interesting class, well-structured, clear, real-time for much of it, and oddly soothing. Good voice from the instructor, good-humored class, and information that's transferrable to all sorts of fun projects. Don't stop once you've got the hang of it - can't wait to see what I'll make next. Recommended.
