I have learnt a lot from this course. I really liked the way that Professor Starbird shows that nobody is a genius because everybody has the same capability as others. This course has change my life and I encourage to take it. Although there are some boring videos, everybody will learn that understanding simple things deeply, making mistakes, raising questions, and following the flow of ideas, he/she can change. I really thank Professor Starbir for everything because he change the way I look the world.

In general, I really liked this course. You need to take some time to complete assignments and problem sets. I would like to have a little help or perhaps some extra material, but it is no a problem at all. I learnt some aspects and concepts that I didn't understand when I take a similar class at the university. By the way, Keith Devlin is extremely organize.

In general, this is a good introductory course to programming. Although some material is not completely clear, it provides a good glimpse about what somebody is able to do with programming. I enjoyed this course specially problem sets that I consider are challenging and very useful. I undoubtedly recommend this course for someone who wants to improve his/her knowledge at programming because it uses a really easy to learn programming language, i.e. Python, and it covers topics that are essential but fundamental into computer science. However, it can result a little difficult for someone who has no previous experience at programming.

I loved this course. It is the best Python programming MOOC for beginners. You will learn everything from variables until object oriented programming. I really enjoyed this class because mini-project were challenging and Scott, Joe and John are really good teachers. I want to thank both Joe and Scott because you teach me how to think in objects. I was struggling with this issue, but using game to introduce concepts, makes learning straightforward. I definitely recommend this course. By the way, I loved CodeSkulptor because it allows me to share my code with some friend and family without worrying about if they had Python installed on their computers. Thanks Scott for CodeSkultor.
