    7 eager students, 1 industry expert teacher, 6 supporting staff, we made this iOS Programming class in OC the first. Pre-class planning, in-class focus, and post-class review, we want to make it the finest in OC. Thank everyone and please raise your expectation.

    All the basics were covered and all questions were answered. Usman did a great job and left us hungry for more. I would recommend this to anyone with a technical background (at least another language or two) or for those that need a quick review.

    Usman covered a great amount if material in a short time, but kept it manageable, so everyone in the class (including me!) could keep up . I highly recommend this class!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
