Very useful course. It built my Cloud Computing basis from scratch. Fisrt course gives me the enthusiasm to start the later ones. A good place for studying and sharing with course mates. Thank you!
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.

should make the exam easier, and this course only teaches concepts and it asked you to do a C++ assignment

Please discuss in brief the steps for solving programming assignment. The rest of the course is fantastic.

Very good intro to a number of distributed computing topics. Challenging assignment and engaging material.

Great course! I learnt basics of current cloud computing technologies, even this is really tough course.

Programming assignment is the great experience and effective exercise for the course topic.

Materials are long and the cause content is very rich. Chandy Lamport is nightmare...
By Thibaut C•
Really good, however having to write the assignment in c++ is a downer.

Very very tough class. The notes are very intensive for each lecture.

It's a great course, but the assignments are kind of annoying.

Course is great, but some lectures feel slightly outdated

Good Course !

The course was very interesting and the assignment was good.
I had trouble submitting the assignment though I finished it a month back. The submission was tougher than the assignment and the course itself. I have only windows OS, and the assignment materials are for Linux and Mac users. I had to use Cygwin to compile and run grader script. Submission didn't work from cygwin. I would have rated this course 5 if not for the trouble that I encountered for submitting the assignment.

The video lecture content is pretty good and the homeworks seem decent. The programming assignment provides some code that is a travesty to work with. I spent a couple hours refactoring what I could before I realized I was stuck using some fundamentally poor datatypes for the problem at hand. No support in the forums for the many complaints about the assignment. I would rate 5 stars if only the experience with the programming assignment was something even approaching decent.

The content is pretty good. The content of the quizzes was good, but the last few quizzes are extremely and unnecessarily long. The programming assignment was just really unpleasant and enough for me to walk away from the entire certification. The starter template for that assignment is really poorly written and I found it difficult to get started. Good luck finding useful support in the discussion forums.

This course content covers lot of diverse topics but I would prefer the explanation to be more comprehensive and in depth so that a beginner can understand the big picture as well as the details more vividly.The assignment was pretty good which creates a good learning curve in C++(especially pointers) and understanding of the one of the most important concepts in cloud computing.

The concepts are explained very well. The only issue was the Programming assignment, which could have been more descriptive. Also, they could've given us the option of choosing a programming language.
