Great guy, very easy class. If don't do your work and don't ask for help the class will seem hard, but he's always willing to tell you exactly what you're doing wrong/right

Really nice guy but not a very good teacher. Gets all excited about programming and is the type of guy whod pick unicorns over bull and felt over leather.

Elkner is a good teacher, but remember that you have to put in effort to learn. You will get what you put into this class.

Mr. E is cool and people have to understand that he teaches a hard subject. People are wrong for thinkinking he's dumb because he's not.

Linux is different than windows. Elkner is a great guide, teaching is boring. I've learned more by myself, than any other teacher... :)

You do realize if he was actually any good with computer programming he wouldn't be working at a school. He only just learned this year that ctrl-c is copy, I mean really people.
