Very Good course intermediate or even advance level for embedded systems programming. I highly recommend this course for who wants to learn writing good quality, maintainable and portable code
This is a very wonderful course. The instruction was perfectly delivered, and I can see myself going places with what I have learned here so far.

It was a good course, with a coherent content and extension of the topics covered in the previous course in the series, "Introduction to Embedded Systems Software and Development Environments". I highly recommend to do the introductory course before starting this one. From what I know, before it was a whole specialization consisted of more courses (maybe 4) but they are not available anymore. I guess there were some significant mistakes in the following courses, this is why they took them down. Unfortunately, there were no programming assignments as in the previous course. Moreover, there was no real need to have the MSP432 hardware to complete the course so I don't understand why it was put in the course requirements. Nevertheless, the course provides you with a lot of knowledge and it's a natural continuation of the introductory course.

Excellent course for the introduction of ARM Cortex Architecture. It gave me insight on Micro-controller inter routines.

This was excellent. The instructor is very clear and easy to understand. The hardware was never needed though?

I like, very interesting to aboard a good firmware development in microcontrollers

Great Content. Not alot done with the micocontroller though.

Very good, could do with more than three weeks.

The course presents several interesting concepts, but the lack of practical tasks makes the course loose a lot of its potential. I did the first module of the specialization as well, and the difference between the depth among the 2 is huge. While the first had a coding task for each week of the course, this one consisted of just presenting some concepts and a multiple selection quiz for each week.
Finally, there is no need to buy the hardware for this course as it is not used in this module. Overall, very interesting material but the lack of practical tasks makes it loose some points.

The provided information is very useful and the delivery is also great. However, it is extremely brief and feels like a trailer rather than a course. There are no assignments where you have to write code, and the development board that's supposed to be required is barely used. Most of the concepts are touched but left for later. Considering that there are no more courses (even though Coursera says this is 2 of 4), this is a big disappointment.

Это полностью теоретический курс, ни одной сторочки реального кода вы в нем не напишите.
В начале курса просять купить dev board, но никакой практики с ней тоже не будет.
Отсутвует ссылки на исходный код примеров или презентации.
Реальный объем куса - намного меньше заявленного.
Спокойно можено пройти курс за 3 вечера. Часик на видео и пол часа на тесты каждой недели.

The contents of this course are very useful, but don't match the description, at all. This course is way more theoretical than the previous one, and though you are encouraged to purchase a development board at the beginning, there are no practical assignments.
Regardless, I learned a lot about CPU's architecture and specialized C programming stuff

I was expecting that there would be more hands on assignments to use the MSP432 board, and actually do some programming. There are definitely some great embedded programming techniques shared and explained well, but it needs more practical application/exercises.

no es necesario el uso del microcontrolador, solo se realiza un breve ejemplo
Good course but certificate is not issued
By Tamas C•
The course material has little to do with embedded programming and more with simple, basic C programming.
But that is not why I am not giving more stars: whenever I was trying to answer the vaguely phrased questions, I had to guess what the teacher believed was the correct answer. Based on how you interpret the questions, some of the expected answers are plain wrong. And some I cannot even understand how could be possibly correct, no matter how I am trying to interpret the questions. All in all, it was a frustrating experience and I have learned next to nothing for £70 + the price of the board that I did not need to use even once during the course.

Course has only slides videos and quizzes, instructor speaks very fast, like reading, doesn't repeat information or show how it's used in real life. there are no assignment, nothing challenging. I passed the course, but I don't feel like I learned anything.
