    Even more interesting than the course syllabus is the way the materials are presented. This is where their offering really differentiates itself from the other online trainings I’ve seen until now. The materials consist of three main parts: Theory and basic concepts are explained in text, Videos are used for the more practical aspects – all of them are screencasts with detailed commentary, Accompanying examples can be used to check out the code at your own pace and to use them as a basis for your own exercises.

    All of this makes the course as close to the experience of studying the topic at a university as possible, hence the name of the company.
