How to Use Git and GitHub

Written 8 months ago
This course was a short, sweet intro to Git. I finished it in 1.5 weeks and spent approximately 18 hours total. I would have spent less time if I could have got the workspace set up correctly (see below).

Sarah and Caroline are excellent teachers, and they keep the class moving at a brisk pace, without overwhelming you with info. You do not need any experience programming or using the command line to follow along. And while at the beginning of class, I thought that I would prefer the GUI to bash. Bash is just so much faster and I am glad that is what they taught.

As mentioned above, my only real trouble in the class was getting the workspace set up, and before that in trying to use Notepad++ as my default text editor. If the directions given in the class notes doesn't work the first time. Make sure that you didn't make any typos. If that is the case, search in Reddit/Stack overflow for the solution. Will save a bunch of time.

Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects

This class should be a requirement for all HS and college students before they ever step into a classroom. Possibly the most important class on Coursera.

Learn to Program: The Fundamentals

Written 7 months ago
Both instructors are very good at explaining the content. And the content covered was quite a good foundation. If I have one complaint, it is that I wish there were more programming assignments and fewer quizzes. I feel like I would have learned more from doing than from picking the right answer(s) from a list. Having said that, this may just be because it is a beginner course.

I would highly recommend the course and these instructors.
