The program is very exciting and introduces lots of things. Even if at the beginning was difficult to approach the project at the end of this first section, I felt step by step more confident and pleased to see my improvements. Moreover, the project reviews and feedbacks really gave precious advices and guidelines to me :))

The program started very well communicating about updates on the APIs in usage. But after the beggining the tips has stopped. It would be better if we had tips about updates on APIs usage to build our Apps!!
