] handled many difficult questions in an exceptional manner... our group was extremely difficult to teach (several experienced people with strong convictions)... Francis somehow kept us from killing each other and allowed all of the comments to be received and considered."
"The instructor's ability to span different levels of ability and interest areas within the class impressed me the most. He had the ability to take a transition from the general to the very specific and understand complex problems. His greatest strength was his analytic ability and depth of subject knowledge as well as his ability to get concepts across. I feel this course gave me a greater understanding on how to manage and structure a highly technical software project as well as an understanding on how programs think and interact to solve a problem."

"The amount of material covered in such a short time and the format of the labs with application was very impressive. I felt the practice has given the course great impact. The instructor had the ability to explain things in a simple manner and was able to build rapport with the students. His greatest strength was considering all questions. I feel I now have a glimpse into object oriented design and implementation including UML syntax."
"The instructor had a great ability to clearly present difficult concepts and keep the class focused on the course subject matter. I was very impressed with how the concepts were presented. The instructor was able to show the practical applications of those concepts with the hands on labs and exercises. I definitely have a better understanding of how to analyze and design using OOAD and UML and to implement C++."

"The planning that went into this course and the course layout was very impressive to me. Materials were presented in a suitable pace. They were not too slow or too fast. The lab exercises were very good and the instructor had the ability to keep the course interesting to the entire class. I understand C++ and object design more completely now and this course has benefited me greatly."
