“Yair knows to share his enormous Matlab knowledge in a very efficient and flexible way. The training was structured very well and contained a good and detailed introduction in object oriented Matlab programming. At the same time it contained a huge amount of new ideas and new knowledge for experienced object oriented Matlab programmers. Additionally we got hundreds of ideas to improve the performance, robustness and GUI programming. After two days of training and few days of work we improved the GUI and the performance of parts of our software dramatically. And there are many ideas of improvement left. Yair is extremely fast in understanding our needs and additionally he is a very nice guy. His collaboration in specifying the software he will write for us and his training were a real pleasure for us. Thank you Yair.”
