"Steve is a great teacher. He is very clear and uses great examples that allowed me, as a beginner, to really understand the fundamental concepts of developing an iOS app. To be a great iOS developer, it takes a lot of time and effort, but starting is the hardest part and Steve made that feel like a breeze. The best part was that in his four hour intro class, we built 3 apps! I'm one who learns by doing and his class was a fantastic balance between theory and implementation."
