Excellent course .\n\nJust felt that there should be examples that could help someone to understand in a more better way.The videos were good and were very simple and easy to understand then the text.

Some things were a little too easy (like the quizzes, for the most part.) Occasionally, there would be some challenges in exercises for which solutions were not laid out in much detail, making them harder. That's a good teaching strategy, and encourages independent thinking to solve them. The discussion board mentors were helpful and promptly responsive, tho I did not find the discussion forums until the end of week 2. I think there should be links to those on more pages.

The course is excellent in many ways. The course material,video is very simple and understandable to a layman also. one need not be an expert.The presentation was superb, leaving no doubt at the end of each week.The course material and video is self sufficient. I am very happy to have joined the course. I would like to complete the rest of the course satisfactorily. I would love to have soft copies of the material which can be downloaded for study at convenient. Thank you

The Contents in the course are very well organised.
Teaching methodology is very unique, as its focuses more on the application of the knowledge learnt.
I am sure, the people who have finished this course will find a difference in them.
Also, this course induces the spirit of programming in the learners and also explains complex image processing techniques in a very simple manner.
Thanks to all the professors and the mentors, for organizing such a fantastic course.

Very helpful if you have no previous experience whatsoever (and even if you do, very helpful to refresh or fill in some of the basic stuff that is rusty or missing).
The reason why is that it really goes from fundamentals, slowly but surely building up, using not only theory but a lot of practical tasks too, the tasks that are structured and well thought-of, propelling the student to develop a deeper understanding of the concepts.
Thank you and well done.

In just first week of this course, I was able to build my first ever website page containing my interests by simply spending 2 hours per day for 3 days.I was real surprise to see that how a slow learner with a busy schedule like me can learn a new useful skill very easily . This course is designed with high level of academic professionalism. I would love to recommend other fellows to try out this course if they want to learn about web development.

Хороший курс для начинающих,у которых уже имеются хотя бы минимальные знания) Жаль,что на многих видео нет перевода на русский,но меня это не испугало,хотя для некоторых может стать это решающим фактором. Задания не скучные,в видео все показывается подробно и не понять просто невозможно. Единственное,еще раз повторюсь, курс на английском и перевода текстов,которые есть - нет,поэтому могут возникать трудности,если вы не владеете этим языком.

Thanks for teaching
In this course I have learned What are the HTML, CSS and JAVA SCRIPT? How to write in CODEPEN? How to make a web page? What is the Green Screen and so on
This course is very well for who doesn‘t know Programming. I interested in programming and I want to be programmer. I don‘t have a experience about programming and I don‘t grasp what are the programming, JAVA SCRIPT, HTML, CSS however I have comprehend all of these

Easy, thorough, but challenging. Discussion pages have so much insight accumulated from years of student suffering. Programming is hard, especially when you wrap things up and you find out you have a bug somewhere. You look over it a thousand times and don't find anything, only to search it up in the discussions to find that someone else had a similar issue and a solution for your problem as well. Worthwhile learning experience!

It's so important to know the relationship between varieties of technique as for a beginner and how they interact with each other, without digging deep in one technique. And the purpose of using this technical route is always based on the problems that should be solve. That's the reason why I would speak highly of this course, even with nearly ten years of software maintaining experience, this course makes me acquired a lot.

Being the very first course that I took in Coursera, I was honestly very surprised at how easy the material was to understand. I don't know how many people feel the same way, but the videos and projects were easy to follow and only took about 4-5 hours every week for me. I would definitely recommend this to people who are trying to get a feel for programming. Thank you professors for making this experience so amazing!

This is so far the best online course for web development. Its difficulty is moderately hard which is a good thing. This course works through the fundamentals of programming and computational thinking. More specifically this course really worked through the algorithms. This not that average html css element teaching course. This is really challenging. I am feeling very confident about this.
By AMAN V•
This is the best course and a great opportunity for a newbie to learn Html, CSS and java script from the best instructors of the field in lucid manner. The way of teaching is awesome, and the assignment are made in an interactive way to catapult our imagination. A great reverence to all instructors of DUKE University for helping me out to learn a completely new field. Thank you once again
By Tanya S•
this was an amazing course.The faculty of Duke univ teaching in this course is amazing and gives all the information you need in a very precise and fun manner.Also,lots of practice "try it out" exercises make it a fun leaning process.
Also i would recommend doing the steganography module for honors as it is rally informative and interesting to know about!
Good luck and cheers to Duke Team!

Thank you for this amazing introductory course, as I have learned a lot about computer programming in a fun and easy way. The way the course started from one pixel concept to manipulating images and hiding an image inside another was fascinating. The most important thing I have learned was thinking about how to solve a problem and understand it right before start writing my code.
By Yelaman M•
Well done! it is professionally constructed easy for understanding and practicing course. Especially the course is comfortable tool for beginners or non tech guys. For me this is CS50 analogue of Coursera and Duke University. Thanks for professors for the course. And special thanks for Kazakhstan government for financial support of its citizens for free course and certificate

Nicely structured and organized course. Gives just enough to get the taste of the topic in combination with interesting problems to solve. The last one is forcing you to dig a bit in between the documentation. But almost all topics are covered in support section for the project.
Great job by Duke's team! Will recommend it without any doubts and the 1st one will be my son :)!

I have learned a great deal from this course. The lectures and assignments were very well structured. The most important feature of the course for me was that after every bit of new information, there were challenging exercises that gave me a good grasp of the newly learned material. It took many, many hours of working on the assignments, but it was worth every second!

I think this is the ideal course for one to enter computer science. For me was very easy to pass because of being already a professional python programmer but nevertheless I LEARNED new things with this lesson and acquired a useful background. If this was my first course I would be much more qualified to follow any other computer language. Definitely recommended.
The course was informative ,interactive,productive and challenging . The environment provided for practice including the documentation was a great tool for understanding the concept and elements used for creating a webpage. The assignment at the end of each module was challenging. Overall the course helped me in understanding the basics if creating a webpage
