"Matt has been one of the best mentors I've come across. He has a lot of practical knowledge which is exactly what any course cannot convey. He is also concise and easy to understand - valuable traits from a software engineers perspective. He's also a great guy to talk with. I could write a lot more but I'll simply say nothing to improve/change, Matt is awesome!"

- Peter Dev, Design 101
