Comment: Teaches Ruby on Rails Decal. All of the course staff tried to be very helpful and available, so definitely credit for that, but aside from being interesting/enthusiastic lecturers, the class went at a nightmarish pace, and it seemed very very hard to grasp truly what was going on. I spent significant time on the projects, but it seemed impossible to keep up at many points. Rails taught in this format just didn't seem to work. Labs are also optional, and there is very little guidance available overall, so they were difficult to complete.

Comment: Taught the Code the Change decal. Assignments were pretty disorganized/all over the place; they basically just gave us online tutorials with no instruction or direction, really. He's enthusiastic and the final projects weren't bad (we got to choose), but there wasn't really any instruction or anything along those lines. Kind of got the worst of both worlds with being unable to teach well and unable to get a well-done project in. Still was interesting though!

Comment: This was Gamecrafters. As always, Dan was super excited. Had a tendency to go off on tangents though. The class is now run by senior members of the Gamescrafters team, and they do a reasonable job of it.

Comment: This is for the MSDOSX class, which is actually student-taught and not taught by a professor. Lectures weren't that well run, and class logistics were a bit of a mess. Overall this class is a lot less rigorous than it could have been. It doesn't provide that strong of a foundation in iOS development, and a lot is left up to yourself to self-learn. It's otherwise a pretty laid-back, easy class.
