The Data Scientist’s Toolbox

Written 3 years ago
The course was a good introduction. As an experienced programmer, I found the course quite easy. However, I do appreciate the focus on setting up the tools and environment. Too many people leave version control to chance. It is something people are just supposed to pick up as they go along.

M101JS: MongoDB for Node.js Developers

Written 3 years ago
The scope of the course is definitely introductory. It covers all of the basics of what you need to get started using MongoDB, but does not go very deep. I can see that this course could be quite challenging for someone who is new to programming.

This was my first time-boxed MOOC. The hard deadlines were a key feature for me, because I tend to get really excited about a topic, dive in, burn out, and quit.

I found myself completing the lectures and homework and being anxious to start on the next week's material. This pushed me into the forums where I was actually able to answer questions and help other students. That felt really nice.
