"Really awesome - very obvious that Joe put thought and care into the experience of this class, it was super smooth, coordinated, and useful. Love the online platform, Joe really managed to incorporate almost all the benefits of an in-person class while cutting out the downsides like commuting and wearing pants :)"

I did not have much of an understanding about VX and how to design for it. After completing this workshop, I feel that I have a clear direction on how to start my first VX project.
