Excellent course, packed with relevant content and useful hands on Kotlin exercises with great feedback based on Coursera provided unit tests. Looking forward to more Coursera courses from JetBrains.
Thanks JetBrains team, the course is as great as all the things that you do!\n\nNow I am going to visit Kotlin island (Kronstadt) to see lighthouse on your logo (I leave nearby in Saint-Petersburg).

Sometimes it is hard to understand what she is saying and the subtitles are not very accurate. Very informative and great course for introducing any java dev to Kotlin. Thank you! P.S. the last assignment could really use some better tests and specification (the first one was quite ambiguous)

This course allows getting familiar with basic constructions and ideas included in Kotlin. The material is easy to understand and clearly presented.
I gave only 4 stars because some assignments force you to focus on a domain of exercise instead of practicing the language itself.

The course was amazing. It covered almost all the concepts.
But sometimes I felt the course was in speed. like it covered so many things in one video which I got some trouble.
The rest was good.
Thankyou Jetbrains and Coursera for such an amazing course.

Хорший и интересный курс. Но очень хотелось бы, что по по окончании каждой недели была краткая выжимка по неделе в виде pdf. Несмотря на наличии документации в интернете, а так же разных книг, было бы удобнее пользоваться кратким обзором недели.

The final work (GAME 2048) contains too many complex rules and difficult to understand requirements. IMHO, it doesn't make sense just to evaluate the level of knowledge of Kotlin.
The quality of the course and the 2 teachers are excellent!

Very nice Kotlin introduction with a good mix of videos explaining new concepts and exercises to use it in practice! Thank you very much for all the effort that was put into this friendly course. Looking forward to more courses on Kotlin!
This is a great course where you will learn a lot. Some tasks are challenging and fun to resolve. I definitely feel that Kotlin is a great language to learn and this course is really ideal if you starting Kotlin. I highly recommend
By Carlo D G•
excellent explanations, the lessons are clear and well structured.
the exercises are a little too difficult, leading the student to seek any solutions even without using the best constructs of language given their difficulty
By Stefan M•
In the end the course material could have been prepared a little bit better and the course seemed to have no proper end. To me it seems to be unfinished and the mentioned upcoming courses are not yet available.

This course is good if you want to learn Kotlin because it has an excellent material. The exercises are not trivial, you will spend lots of time solving them. The teacher's accent is not easy to follow.

Курс замечательный, однако, как мне показалось, многие вещи достаточно быстро проходятся и не совсем в том порядке, как было бы оптимально. В любом случае, нисколько не жалею, что прослушал данный курс.

I actually want to give 5 stars, but since the english being spoken in the video is not really clear, then 4 stars. Other than that, the course is great for any programmers who have experience in java
By Kiran A•
The assignments don't have a detailed explanation. There should be more of code provided with fill the blanks kind of tasks. This would make it much easier and helpful as the assignments are tough.
By Nickson K•
Excellent course, some sections go out of their way to show how Kotlin is different from Java... maybe I wasn't so keen to learn about differences rather than just having fun with Kotlin.
By Andrea D M•
Very useful course that covers all the basics (and more, sometimes!) of Kotlin.
It is really well-taught, but some assignments show gradle errors that can be ignored, but are still quite annoying.
By Kenneth H•
Good survey of Kotlin language features. Would have been nice if assignments focused more on Kotlin idioms. Perhaps that's a fundamental issue with using an automated grader?
By Pablo P•
I loved this course. I believe it is really useful for busy developers who want to update/upgrade their skills to now include the essentials of Kotlin language.
By James H•
Language barrier makes content hard to understand sometimes. Also lots of topics that I would not want to see in production code (let or takeif, for example).
This is a great course, it introduce Kotlin very well, and show me a lot about how it works under the hood, anyway, it is a fantastic introduction course.
By Ivan B•
Есть ошибки. Немного странно изложен материал. Что-то глубоко, хотя редко пользуешься, что-то наоборот поверхностно, хотя гораздо чаще применяется.
By Аршиева К•
Overall this course is a great opportunity to get a general view on the topic. However, adding some extra reading materials would be very helpful
By NAMIT V•
The explanation was good but not up-to mark, because the exercise which was given to us to solve was way harder than the explanation provided .
By Ankit J•
Some of the concepts are too high level for a beginner developer to learn. And the difficultly of the task should be reduced little bit.
By Bombel H•
Not all requirements in assignments are specified in the description - running tests locally and analyzing expected output is required.

Please, consider recording some videos on Second try at least, its really difficult to hear woman lector sometimes and frustrating.
