I have never had a chance to study CS at the university so I am always looking for ways to improve my knowledge - to keep up with fellow programmers. And this course met my requirements perfectly. :)

The course was really recommended for a good kick start in design patterns and it would be more effective if you follow this course along with head first design patterns book

All in all, it was a good course. However, there were some issues. Firstly, the course notes was full of errors. Secondly, the projects did not always run immediately with the newest version of android sdk and tools. I am not so familiar with android, and each time I had to fight a few hours with these kinds of errors. The third issue was that the rubrics were not precise enough sometimes. For example, some students fulfilled the points in the rubric, but they had not addressed the issues in the assignment correctly.
Thank you for effort, and hope you can address the issues above to improve the course in the future.

Nice content and material, very well explained! It would be better if the assignments used more plain console programs instead of an Android App. Even though it's nice to use the patterns in a "real world" app, the focus in the patterns get lost sometimes due to the complexity of the environment and the code for such an app. In a simpler environment, It also would be possible to have harder assignments, which would lead to a better overall result.

The course provided me a high level vision of Design Patterns and its application to solve main common software design problems. It worth to do the course.
In my opinion, some more practical exercises would provide better knowledge fixation, also use Android applications on the Capstone assignments was a poor choice, cause it is high resource consuming and has some limitations depending on the OS you are using.

Course is great, but I think it can benefit of doing pure java exercises, rather than to have to depend on an application on android, Also, it needs more exercises with refactoring , I do understand there is so many patterns, but it will increase analitic capacity from the student.

Good. Feedback from assignments is ok. There could be more elboration on the final code-smells stuff (maybe some example solutions). The example code given does not compile, I had to spend a reasonble amount of time fixing the build errors. Course content was good and informative.

I liked learning about the many different design patterns touched on in this course. I think more could have been done with practically implementing the patterns (starting from scratch). The Capstone project again involved a great deal of overhead which wasn't really justified.

I love always extra additional optional material for who want to go in deep. Maybe some pdf with other design patterns.
I don't like at all android studio as development environment.
In order to study design pattern maybe could be better some simplest and lightest environment.

I think it gave a good overview of the content. I felt they needed to have more written content.
I understand there is a lot out there already on design patterns but it would have been nice if they had developed texts that went with the videos.

great content. Instead of just introducing every design pattern, this course chose to introduce some classic patterns for every category and focusing on connecting them on a high level - writing "reusable, flexible, maintainable" code.

Very good course but I think you should give many practical examples. I searched a lot to get the full knowledge about one pattern. Anyway it's very recommended to anyone need to level up development skills.

Pros - Simple explanations for some of the most used design patterns. Quick guide for daily use.
Cons - Requires some Android programming knowledge. Completing previous course 'Object Oriented Design' helps.

Very rich content. However, i don't think the community reviewing system for assignments
is the best, if there is a more controlled reviewing option can be used, i think it will be better.

I learned both fundamental and how to apply design pattens. Especially having assignment is a great merit of this course. I wish it would have more assignment for each design pattern.

Quite a good course to understand the fundamental design patterns that we can apply in software design. Liked the amount of student indulgence that is encouraged in the project.

Good for people already know the stuffs and need some kind of brush up. Otherwise have to be willing to study contents from web to truly understand the patterns.

Awesome learning experience alongwith examples.
Smaller, simpler and more number of code writing & design making exercises can make it more awesome.

The demo could have been also possible with any simple IDE, as installing and configuring Android Studio could be irrelevant for some students.

I really enjoyed how the concepts are explored. My humble suggestion is to increase the level of examples in the code smells section.

Very good course content and appropriate assignments. Having more examples before assignment would help little more in my opinion.
