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.
Very nice and informative course, and the programming assignment in the end of the course is so helpful to understand and apply the theoretical concepts that was introduced during the course

Good, but not a fan of using C++ and that made the programming assignment tricky, especially since can only chnage a few things and the provided code is not always very well explained.

I couldn't quite appreciate the utility of topics like sensor networks or structure of networks. Other than that, the course was fine and the programming assignment was interesting.

Programming assignment is very immature. I've encountered few segfaults (in provided code, not mine). But the rest is good

The content of this course is good. Some of the quizzes are little bit too tedious.

This course is overall pretty good, but some content may be a little obsolete.

A great theoretical class with an obscenely unreasonable coding assignment
It make me strong

Similar to the Part 1 of the course, it has really good lectures and a very poor programming assignment.
The lectures are very good: relevant and algorithms are explained step-by-step. The talks about real-world cloud applications are great for people in my position, looking to "scale up" a business operation by using cloud.
The programming assignment compounds upon the problems of the first one. The biggest issue is that it asks you to use code from the first assignment, so if your first assignment was not implemented very well, expect to have to fix that to even continue. It continues the trend of improper use of pre-C++ 11 concepts, and causes even more problems due to the design of the problem to solve.

I enjoyed the lectures. Having said that, topics seemed disconnected. The final assignment was, in my opinion, a bit out of the scope of the course. Though I did research on my own and completed it, I was unequipped to do so solely from the course material.
I ended up struggling with c++ more than with the algorithms. Also for people who have kids and full time jobs is very complicated to complete on the time given and have to constantly request for new time.

Content should be updated(like case studies etc). Assignment needs to be improved a lot. Cod Template and GraderScript is not well thought of all possibilities
good material actually, however, the assignment is kind of out-of-date and looks no one is maintaining it. The TA just create posts and do nothing. Also I really don't understand what's the point to submit the programming assignment with python script? It should be meant to help students with the programming itself, not other unrelated parts...
