Dear Ladyada (Ms. Fried):

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the AMAZING tutorials that your company provides. Your employees provide stellar examples and empower us (the end user) to be able to easily follow along. The concise instructions makes it easy to understand how to use the items. These examples also plant seeds of creativity for extending and creating new projects, because we are given the knowledge on how it works.

I especially want to thank Tony D, on his STELLAR tutorials, especially the recent three part series on the “Raspberry Pi talking to WIFI ‘Things’”.

His tutorials are clear, easy to follow and provided many insights as to why you want to code in a particular way, including explaining some of the pitfalls. His easy style, programming skill and past experience is clearly conveyed to the end user. I love his examples because he takes the time to explain why he is coding in a certain way.

Having previously been a developer (pre WEB), I am learning so much by following along in his coding examples. I can’t wait for new tutorials from him. I could easily see him being a formal instructor on learning Python or web based coding.

Best Wishes
