  • "I had gone to two iD Tech day camps before this when I was young and had enjoyed them. I decided to come back as I had began programming and wanted to build my skills. I feel that the course was simple and taught very well, and starting with just basic programming knowledge, I can now say that I am a proficient app-creator."
