Well, I am currently at Computer Science at UofT, and I have to say, Heffernan did a great job in preparing me for UofT, and I am very grateful that I ended up having him for three years at North Toronto. Takes his job seriously, nice guy, and I have a lot of respect for the guy. One of my favourite teachers of all time.

His class was absolutely boring, I would spend entire classes taking naps or doodling in my binders and he usually doesn't care if you listen to his lecture or play games while said lecture; which was actually pretty cool. But what gives him such a bad rating is because his class WAS DAMN HARD.

Very relaxed class, doesn't yell or scream at students, very patient with students talking. Teaches you how to program well.

He's very chills, but if you don't like compsci, don't bother with this course, because most of the time he can be sort of slow. But since compsci fascinates me, I don't get sleepy in his class.

Supposedly this man has only kicked two students out of his class his entire teaching career. And the only the time we got him angry he didn't even raise his voice.
