"Excellent content! First course I've watched here on Pikuma, Gustavo explains things visually and in a very methodical way."
"Great Course! Great explanation of what can be a tricky thing to get used to."
"PIKUMA is the best!"
"Very Clear and Easy to Understand. Thanks, Gustavo! Your explanations and examples are always clear and easy to understand. I heartily recommend any (or ALL) of Gustavo's courses!"
"Demystifies binaries and bit shifting operations. I've been coding for years but each time I needed to use bit shifting I had to find some reference online or just go through trials and errors until I got the desired results. Thanks to this short course, however I'm way more confident that I can do binary calculations and bit shifting operations in my head and as a bonus I see more clearly how it can benefit me in some use cases that I didn't consider before!"
