I have very little experience with programming and hence wanted to ensure that I build a proper foundation and this course seemed to be great step in the direction. This was my second on-line course and stands out because of the professor's passion to teach and this course is literally for anyone who simply wants to start programming.
The intro seems to be promising and it's still to early to say much. However the topics taught are the things that almost everyone does every other day but really isn't sure if that is the right way to do it, this course explains those techniques based on scientific research. It's a great topic for anyone who is struggling to learn.
I took this course from the Stanford Online platform. I just took this course for fun even though I am fairly well versed with computers. What you really learn is seriously the basics of computers which most don't know and so in a way it was great to see what lies beneath the ground. Nick is a great instructor and I seriously appreciate his effort in getting this course together. The time commitment required is minimum and anyone looking to have fun should take this course.
This course is for anyone. If you're willing to dive into technology or computer science then this should be a good intro. The course stands out mostly because of the professor's style of teaching which keeps you hooked onto the lectures.
