"The instructor articulates the materials so well with great humor. He not
only covered most of textbook but also provided a great deal of other
current materials such as SQLite, web scrapping, web framework. This course
is one of the required course for the Professional Certificate for Software
Development and I listed it on my resume. At my interview I specifically
told the interviewers that I am taking this certificate class from IIT. It
definitely helped me to get hired by this company." - An IIT Professional Certificate Alumni
