2. What skill level do have to be to take the course?

The course is designed to serve a range of skill levels, providing first looks at complex topics for newer students, and in-depth understanding for more experienced students. Each day in the course is designed to build on the previous, so more experienced students may find that some of the material in the beginning of the course is review for them, and while some newer students may find the content in the later days to be complex. However, as the class size is small, Ryan tailors the content to the individual students and provides more or less detail and complexity depending on the needs of the class.
