Angela Yu is the cutest teacher in the club, she is very nice and heartwarming, a very good teacher, she is really good at teaching. When I started transitioning from Web Development into Mobile Development most specifically in IOS Development, she then became my mentor, I took 2 of her courses in Udemy, learning IOS 11 and then 12 using Swift Language. Now she is also teaching Android Development as well.

It was already hard learning Web Development on my own, and transitioning into Mobile Development in just a year as a developer was pretty crazy, but I succeded, she is a lifesaver!

She made it easy to understand, her courses are very fun, I didn’t feel bored at all, now she had this new course about learning Web Development for Beginners, a course I wish I had when I was still starting out, this was also the course I used when I held a Giveaway Course for anyone who wants to start learning Web Development last month, this course is something I would really recommend.

She is also very popular in Udemy because all of her courses got the highest-rated courses and most reviewed.

She now has courses in Flutter too, which I recently bought :)

Colt Steele is a master in teaching Javascript in-depth, I understood Javascript because of him, I recently took his course in Modern React and Redux 5 months ago, and again I found another mentor and this time it’s for learning Redux. Of all the tutorials and videos I’ve watched and read, his explanation and examples enlightened me, after several months of trying I finally understood Redux, all thanks to Colt Steele and his cat :)
