Interactive questions, scenarios and story, structure and pace

It was challenging, but I really enjoyed it!

I found the gamification side of the course both provided some entertainment through the characters and story (I loved Glitch!), and made me want to push myself through getting all the badges.

I found that the challenges were difficult enough to test me, but not so difficult that it caused me frustration.

I particularly noticed how well written each problem was, with what was expected of you being laid out clearly. It definitely teaches you to read the questions carefully!
