by Omar completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
Background: I have worked at a startup for the past 3 years, so I was already familiar with some concepts.

Content: it was quite easy for me, but I enjoyed listening to the professor's experiences and watching the optional interview content.

Difficulty: easy.
