It has started the things from scratch and is not a spoon feeding platform letting the students explore a lot. It gives us the best memtoship and a healthy slack community of learners to interact and hence learn with.

It is a great course.

Kevien F.

Through this program, I found out how messed up was my state management in my previous development process. I was able to build an application with proper management of its state and optimized code. I was able to build application which some of them was same with a real world application. I had no such knowledge with React at first and had a difficulty on learning on my own. But through this program, it made my learning at ease. The reviews at the end of each project submissions were also great since it helps the students improve their work. Great experience I had with this Nano degree course!

It was worth the money
