In these first 13 minutes I learned so many techniques and best practices.
Quite a few times I found myself cursing that it had taken me weeks to learn what Michael was demonstrating in meer minutes.
The beauty of the course however lies in the fact that you're not spoon fed everything. You're expected to have prior knowledge of concepts such as Python Classes, data structures and so on.
Michael makes it very easy to follow along in the beginning of the courses. Everyone learns differently, but one of the ways I learn best is to follow along by typing the code as he does in the video, helping me commit it to memory.
For anyone who is on the fence, take the course, I was in the beginner ~ intermediate level and started his courses, immediate return on investment. Great teaching Michael!
