Anonymous dropped this course.
You have to install a lot of software to follow this course, almost every part you have to use something else. So asking your ICT department every time is a bummer. And i agree the course is sometimes being focused to much on the past (theory).

I guess following a course on youtube is better and free

Too much about theoritical things
