|While there are some very useful resources on YouTube, there is no substitute for individual attention and two-way communication. John will thoroughly review all your code and provide his expert analysis and commentary.||Click to See an Example of Feedback|
|You may also email John if you have a question or would like me to write some example code for you to illuminate a concept that's less than clear.||Click to see an Example of the Type of Help Provided|
|All skill levels (including absolute beginners) are welcome. Upon request, John will provide a complimentary 30 minute meeting to discuss your goals and get acquainted.||Click to See How Lessons Work|
A number of John's former students have found full time programming jobs, nearly all of them had only an associate's degree.
|His class was instrumental in helping me get a job. The one on one format was far more efficient than a traditional classroom. While we covered most of web front end and back end basics fairly quickly, we would slow down and do a deeper dive on parts that confused or interested me. He was flexible with our meeting time and content; he was able to pivot and change the lesson plan whenever I happened to ask a "great question". I never felt like we were working through some textbook or list and every class was more like a conversation. Also, he really knows the industry. His interview tips and technical whiteboard practice helped me secure a job I love. He was always incredibly supportive and really believed in me. I highly recommend his class to anyone interested in advancing their programming prowess -- 10/10 would take class again. - SV|
|Dumas really knows how to make learning to program into an enticing, fun challenge. What's more, he knows what it takes to succeed in the industry -- the value of well-written, well-organized, reliable, and efficient code -- and he is eager to help his students to internalize those habits. But if that suggests to you that the only people who can get anything from Dumas are those seeking to be professionals, I'll say that learning these things will make ANYONE -- professional or hobbyist -- a better programmer. I do not exaggerate when I say I never learned more in such a short amount of time about programming than I did with Dumas. I only wish I had more classes with him. (You might even see me there ;) )- LB|
|Learning from Mr Dumas was always fun and challenging in the right way. He found ways to make sure he was giving every individual student a challenge fit for their individual needs while still delivering the needed curriculum for the day. He's got tons of real world experience and it shows - he was always able to tie our lessons into real world examples or use cases that really cemented the ideas for us. He's also really good at teaching math, so our waves of game design students sneaked in 3D math lessons where we could to help our final projects. He's exactly the kinda guy you want to bounce ideas off of and make something great - he's a great listener, fun guy all around, and an excellent teacher. - KC|
