The course is going good and the whole structure of the course is very helpful. But if there were more parts of technical part such as technical explanations and practical exposure to various aspects then it would had been more useful and moreover anyone will learn more effectively in technical rather than in textual format. But i appreciate and thank for providing me an opportunities in enrolling in such a valuable course. Thank you
