TOP REVIEWS FROM CLOUD COMPUTING CONCEPTS, PART 1
Professor Indranil Gupta is apt in his explanations.
Course Material is highly relevant. Good foundation course for cloud computing.
Enjoyed the course. Brought back my ability to program in c++. The programming assignment was sufficiently challenging to achieve that.
Nice topics covered in the course. Homeworks and the final exam are easy. Course Assignment is a nice implementation of what the lectures cover, but difficult to start.
Excellent primer on distributed systems theory and practice, but the programming assignment was complicated by low quality template code.
