TOP REVIEWS FROM CLOUD COMPUTING CONCEPTS, PART 1
I wish there was a text book we could refer to. Also I wish there were more concepts from real world architectures as well :)This course is already great though
Excellent primer on distributed systems theory and practice, but the programming assignment was complicated by low quality template code.
This is a great course with a good balance of just theory and concepts, with practical ideas and exercises. The programming exercise can be a bit annoying, but was enjoyable nonetheless.
Great course, I would recommend to everyone who wants to understand the basics of cloud computing. The course material is excellent, the instructor Indy is phenomenal and the exams are marvelous.
