Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
Excellent all round knowledge of subject matter.
Maurice was able to demonstrate real world examples and it was evident he wasn't just dictating what he had read in books but speaking from the practical experience.
I really liked how the course was organised and that Maurice showed us real world example, wrote code in front of us, and made the whole course really practical. Thank you, Maurice! I would be glad to be your student once again.
Maurice is a good instructor - very knowledgeable and friendly.
