Proactivity http://phoenixscores.heroku.com/ "There's no greater motivation than a bit of competition! (Great idea with the leader board by the way, I know that a some of the other students have really been encouraged to work even harder to try and finish on top)" "Just a quick confirmation of receipt & to say I am really looking forward to getting my teeth stuck into this project." I was just wondering if it would be possible at this stage for our group to get into contact with Mr. Salter directly. We just wanted to ask him a few more questions about the business in general so we can get a little more of an idea about the business as the whole. If we could get an email address or a telephone number that would be great, if not we'd be more than happy to direct our questions through you.

All the best,

he provided really helpful pointers" "I certainly got a lot out of the forum[s] both when
I was stuck, and when I was able to help others" "I met some new people in discussing the puzzles
and it was always a good conversation starter" "What am I going to fill my evenings
with now?!" "GHC was a fundamental part of
understanding what the course was about"
