Other People's Opinions

It's no exaggeration to say that I wouldn't currently have a job in development without this site. So thanks for ruining my life, Tania.


Not to get too dramatic, but I find your site to be an unspeakably beautiful lifeboat in an overwhelming sea of technical jargon and shite.


You taught me more than any class could have and it took me a fraction of the time because of how clearly you write and teach.


I keep coming back to your website and I appreciate it more and more every time. The way you explain things just make sense!


You are the best tutor I have ever seen in my life. This tutorial is an excellent example of simplicity, clear explanations and detailed examples. I love every bit of your work. Never stop teaching, please.


Just wanted to thank you for your awesome tutorials. Glad you found your niche, teaching valuable skills to so many folks out there, instead of preparing fine meals for a select few.
