"Good as part of a larger syllabus"

I am using this program as part of my wider syllabus to learn web development. Altcademy's course is the only component that is paid. The rest of my syllabus consists of free materials and courses you can find online.

The reason I decided to include a... Read More

The program itself is pretty good. The curriculum is well thought out and builds up logically. However as with most paid programs, it is not able to cover all the details. And that is why I am using other resources to drill down more.

If you have no experience with programming at all, this is a good program to get you started on the right foot.
