Excelente curso, muy buen contenido. Algunas tareas son un poco tediosas, pero valen la pena. Todo en inglés, así que también sirve como práctica si tu primer idioma no es el inglés.

Great introductory course. I learnt that a project manager is like a drummer on the band. He keeps a steady beat on the project and make sure everything is playing correctly.
