I started this class and the content I went through was good. the problem is that you have to sign up for an AWS Account to be able to do this course. While that is a good thing because you can practice using the actual AWS Console and stuff, its very bad because you HAVE TO enter your credit card information and there are many warnings about incurring charges in the Billing section of the AWS Console and the Instructor warns that you may be charged for doing things in the AWS Console. You can set up alerts when charges go through, but it doesn't stop you from being charged. There needs to be a practice environment set up for the AWS Console where no payment method is required to learn how to use it. I closed my AWS Account and unenrolled from this class.

The female instructor was difficult to understand. It is hard enough to understand the concepts of the course but to also have to interpret her language makes the course even harder.

It feels scummy that this course is credit card walled. To access the AWS tools required for this course you need to provide a credit card. Even if you're not charged it still feels scummy. I'm the kind of person who doesn't avoids using their card online and being forced to do so ... Well let's just say if they had mentioned that in the course description I'd have stayed away.

I can't get technical support help on an AWS issue and Coursera won't help. Don't take this course. There was a technical issue on AWS side and they wanted me to pay $25/hour to figure out their engineering issue. No thanks. I want to give zero stars but can't

In Week 2, the python script doesnt work so you cant setup your EC2 instances properly (which then you are supposed to use throughout the week 3 and week 4).
