Learning the basics of programming through the courses on introduction of web development has been a rewarding experience. IPND truly laid a strong foundation to the world of programming. The thing I found best about IPND is its focus on building your code on the principles of good programming standards like reusable code, inheritance and abstract and procedural thinking. Introduction of Object- oriented programming was one of the best classes and offered a strong basic knowledge to those who are novice in programming. The projects in the program have given me enough experience and exposure to break a problem into pieces and work through these pieces incrementally. I also found help from peers and Udacity tutors very informative and encouraging and boosted my confidence. The support available from udacity tutors is unparalleled and amazingly instant. The personal feedback given on the projects was incredibly astute and encouraged me to write better reusable and non-repetitive code.I truly recommend IPND to anyone who is new to programming and is looking for a good starting point.

Decent intro, but needs improvement
This course gives an introduction to HTML, CSS, and Python, and also gives students the option to dive deeper into one of the following subfields: data analysis, front end, back end, or IOS programming. The nanodegree combines coursework from various Udacity courses, so the teaching quality varies throughout the program. In addition, the student chats are not always active and they have multiple chat applications, making it confusing. Some of the mini courses are very well taught and the mentorship is great. If you already have a basic idea of the type of programming you want to learn, it may be better to pursue that instead of this course, which will make you spend time on content you may not be interested in. Some of the videos are outdated as well.
Learn to think like a programmer

Probably the most important thing you leave this Nanodegree with is the ability to think like a programmer. You are able to solve problems in a structured and efficient manner. This skill is important in programming, as well as in other areas of life.
The general positivity of the program’s instructors is also very noticeable and it is awesome. The company’s upbeat, welcoming learning environment is a major reason why I am sticking with Udacity as my main source of online education.
Awesome Introduction into the world of Coding
Even though i have some coding background, it´s awesome how this course helps to better understand how programming actually works & how you can use it to solve problems.
It never claims to be a job-readiness course, though. At the end, you´ll get a better understanding of which roles are important in the programming landscape (frontend/backend, android, data-analysts etc.).
Lot of Experience

Having some experience prior to starting this Nanodegree was a boon to my success, that and the time I was able to devote. Overall it was a great experience . I was able to strengthen knowledge I already had while learning some new concepts throughout. The focus shifts periodically from front-end to back-end web and software development.
Absolutely Enjoyed the Journey
I graduated with the Intro to programming nanodegree with 5 months. It was an awesome challenge for me coming from no computer science background. The program was very creative in its structure and the projects required. With that, I decided to enter a new nanodegree which I am taking now "Beginner iOS - Swift"
So far has exceeded my expectations in how engaging the content is, rather than just watching videos. Feedback to project submissions is detailed and constructive, and obviously provided by a real person. A very pleasant and positive learning experience so far.
A great foundation for programming
Exposes you to both the front and back-end of programming. The lessons and projects were both interesting, and challenging enough to make you really learn the concepts and apply them.
This is worth your time and resources. Instructors are friendly and course gets more relevant as it advances.
