Great introduction into the best practice for continuous integration and deployment and how to apply these concept in the cloud. Good balance between practical and theoretical.

he teacher talks throughout the course of general topics, but doesn't explain going into details important passages showing how to do. Lots of copy and paste scripts but without saying how he came up to that code

The content is good, but it is necessary to improve the guide to carry out practical activities, there were many errors and the examples are not reproducible without clear indications

Amazing course and the whole specialization. Noah is a great teacher, it was easy to keep concentration. And I appreciate a good quality video (and its contrast, lighting, saturation) when he films himself. So many people underestimate how better footage helps you to concentrate better as well.

V​ery detailed description of necessary topics in cloud. This is a very vocational oriented course and has a lot of practical aspects of web development. It would be very good if you have very good knowledge of Web development as most of the concepts are related to web design

Great Intro. Noah's insights are, to my estimation, the greatest content of this course

I'm torn, because on one side this course is giving really practical touch to translating computing into daily business activities, on the other side it's within the presentation/videos very generic (a lot od talking, not much synthetical slides). And it does require python intermediate level as well as github experience. Me as a person without the technical background and knowledge of programming could not leverage on labs at all.

DevOp concepts are explained well and taught, but web deployment at the end gets a bit tangled up. Amazon also updated cloud9 interface so some things need to be learned independently. I look forward to the remaining courses in the specialization.

Really loved some of the tutorials on here, however, there were a few with bugs and errors that should be updated. Overall though, great intro to all the cloud services and jargon you hear. Looking forward to the next courses.
