“Dave is the best healthcare software developer and teacher I know”

"The class was wonderful. Even though it was online, I did not miss face to face interaction. It surely will cut down my development time by a substantial factor, because now I know where to find what. The sample projects that you provided are very useful. The design ideas that you gave are great."
-- Authentic Student Evaluation

"Having sat through many multi-day PowerPoint marathons, I can not overstate how great it was to have a primarily hands on, example driven course.  I really liked the fact that 3 hours into the course we had already installed the HealthVault API, set up a project in Visual Studio, and were able to walk through, execute, and modify source code with you.  The shortcuts and tricks you showed us were great.  It was also a refreshing change to have a course on a subject where the instructor *REALLY* understood the underlying technology. (.NET)  Your ability to explain not just HealthVault in theory but HealthVault in practice were very helpful."

We also discuss the data model that HealthVault uses, and the offline connection of clinical systems to HealthVault. Time is reserved for exploring issues of particular importance to the students’ development projects.

The class is taught primarily through coding examples, with no PowerPoint whatsoever.
