Beginning Game Programming with C#

Written 3 years ago
The people who could complete the course like it. Those who couldn't dislike it.

This IS a course for beginners but that doesn't mean that it's easy and that you can learn without efforts.

Obviously, Dr. T's teaching methods and humor don'twork with everyone. It's one of those "you love it" or "you hate it" thing. The best way to get an opinion is to try it. It's free!

You can definitely succeed without buying the book although it's pretty cheap for a CS book.

Here's, in my opinion, what you need to do in order to succeed in this course:

- watch the videos and try the lecture examples yourself (watching is not enough)

- do the optional labs before the required assignments (they help a lot)

- be curious, try stuff. Programming mistakes won't break your computer.

- don't stay stuck on a problem for too long (say 3-4 hours at most). Ask questions on the forums and take a break.

- be open-minded, have fun!

It will be hard and will probably require a lot of time (learning programming takes time) but it can be worth it.

Programming Languages, Part A

Written 3 years ago
This is definitely one of the best courses available on Coursera. Very challenging and time consuming (not for beginners), but it will without doubt make you a better programmer.

The course uses SML, Racket an Ruby to teach you about concepts that can be applied to any programming languages. So, even if you don't know these 3 languages, the knowledge you acquire can easily be applied to any of your favorite languages.

Dan is an amazing teacher. If you're a serious programmer, you MUST take this course!

Genomic Data Science with Galaxy

Written 2 years ago
This course teaches you how to use Galaxy, an interface with a bunch of tools to perform genomics analysis. But be warned, this course assumes that you are a seasoned biologist.

There are some examples of how to use the tools to do basic analysis in the lectures but not a word about why you'd do it and what the results mean.

The project is a nightmare. There's absolutely no guidance and no support from the staff. There's nothing in the lectures to explain what you need to do and how.

Basically, your job is to search the web for a workflow corresponding to the problem and try to reproduce it if you're lucky enough to get the tools working without bugs and unexpected errors.

Grading your peers is almost as difficult as completing the project itself since no two students end up with the same answers and we're not even told what the expected results are.

The timing is also bad. You're expected to finish this project on week 3 (there are 4), which is much too early.

All in all, that has been my worst MOOC experience (by far). This was the first session though so let's hope that the staff will work to improve the course because as it is now, I wouldn't recommend it at all.
