Good overview of the topic most people find dry. Good Job

The "game" was good. I would have liked to have had a note in the description about a PC being mandatory. As it is written, it isn't clear a PC is required. I interpreted the "come ready" as a "prepared to take lots of notes". I would have liked to learn less about how it works and more about best practices or coding standards to make my programming more secure.
