I came to Aquent to check out job opportunities and stumbled upon the Gymnasium. While I design for web, I wanted a deeper knowledge of coding for the web. When I saw Coding for Designers, I figured it wouldn't hurt to give it a try, but did not expect it to be as amazing as it was. I learned more here than I have for paid college and continuing ed classes. - Margaret, Coding for Designers

I’m new to UX, and as a beginning, the course was clear and very informative. Anyone that wants to start understanding the principles of UX could take advantage of this course. - Renata, UX Fundamentals

The course is very well organized and it's super-informative, (covers everything from basic concepts of RWD, to best practice standards and design workflow). An excellent resource for any web designer. - Matt, Responsive Web Design

This is the ONLY jQuery tutorial I've taken that really separates the wheat from the chaff, in terms of teaching the essential stuff. It did so without being overwhelming. The instructor was engaging, and he presented the information in a highly consumable way. - Mia, jQuery Building Blocks
