CS50's Introduction to Computer Science

Written 3 years ago
(Full review: https://medium.com/@venturidb/review-harvard-cs50-introduction-to-computer-science-75405e684a61#.1jq3325cw)

I’m having a hard time describing CS50 without sounding hyperbolic. The course was just so damn good. The content is engaging. David Malan is too good at his job. The production value is absurd. Honestly, go check out a lecture for the production value alone.

I have now completed CS50, Stanford CS101, and half of Udacity CS101 and without question Harvard’s introduction to computer science is my favourite.

Intro to Data Analysis

Written 2 years ago
Took this course as a part of the Data Analyst Nanodegree. Nice coverage of the data analysis / data science process. The videos are well-produced and the instructor (Caroline Buckey) is clear and personable. Lots of programming quizzes enforce the concepts learned in the videos. Left the course confident in my new NumPy and Pandas skills. The final project, which is graded and reviewed in the Nanodegree but not in the free individual course, can be a nice add to a portfolio.
