UI/UX Design from scratch Author

I teach students to argue for their decisions. I make them to gather good examples and teach them to present their works. The important part in learning is basic knowledge about business goals: how do they influence a design, why do you need to lean on goals when choosing your idea. When I have free time, I listen to rock operas, play poker, pass quests and take photos.

The course passed easily and free of hassle. The teacher always supported us and answered any questions we had, even those which weren't really planned for the course. Our Regional Coordinator cheered us up and never allowed us to give up. I would definitely recommend Beetroot Academy to my friends and acquaintances.
