Excelente desarrollo, para un nivel basico/medio, es necesario un trabajo para su tradución al espanol y masificacion al grupo curso.

Technical Remarks:

Excelente linea tecnica, conceptualizando cada item de forma clara y precisa, es necesario definir recomendaciones graficas y/o multimideliales para su compemento.
