He's probably the least strictest teacher I've had in my life. He's very chill, barely gets mad, and the fact that he lets you play games from time to time in his class is great. He understands that school can be stressful and he wants you to loosen that tension but at the same time, get some work done as well. I hope to be in his future classes when I continue with computer studies.

MacKinnon was, hands down, my favourite teacher when I went to DO'C, he made going to school worth it for me. The 3 semesters I was able to take his classes, as well as my time in his robotics club, cemented my love for computer science and drove me to study it in university; I'm down to my last few semesters of my BCS, I'm prepping for an MCS, and I hope to eventually earn a PhD in CS, none of which would be possible without MacKinnon's inspirational teaching. Thank you so much Stephen!

He is so sweet and funny. I wish I was planning to further studies in computers , just to have him as a teacher. Mackinnon comes across as very laid back. Though it seems he doesn't teach you much , he is very helpful and is always willing to explain and give you feedback. I would love to have him a again. :)
