Intro to Computer Science

Written 4 years ago
Being a beginner, I assumed the course would be the right one. I had too much search around elsewhere because I did not understand many things. I had to find out, how to get along with Python, simple things like indentation were not explained. The forums were in the beginning ok, I am talking about the forum software, but this year Udacity is using something different, very useless crap. Unfortunately I depended on that forum, because I had a lot of questions. I watched Khanvids for to understand recursion. Read a lot of posts, that are now not longer available, fortunately I saved them!!

Pro: A project, a webcrawler. Important concepts of CS. Their application.

Con: Not for beginners. Very time consuming. Also because I'd to look for further explanations outside of the course, see above. Pretty difficult.

I did not the final project, because that would require a lot of time, too. Very doubting I could accomplish it.

My rating
Tom completed this course, spending 9 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very hard.

Internet of Things: Setting Up Your DragonBoard™ Development Platform

Written 3 years ago
Course is pointless because they do not tell the prerequisites, neither a hardware list nor is the Dragonboard available, even the price is unknown. I posted those questions in the forums, the Teaching Stuff posted no answer/useless answer. At least a student posted the price of the board. Internet search did not give a result. Normally you are flooded with commercials. What is the purpose of a course, if the hardware is not available, even not in a highly industrialized country? Btw: They have a close relationship with Qualcomm=Dragonboard. Course is a waste of time and temper!

Tom is taking this course right now, spending 6 hours a week on it.
