Excellent course! I have some background in other programming languages and went through the course to reinforce the basic concepts and to learn python. Overall, the quiz and assignments are challenging to a certain extent and is perfect for beginners!

Thanks to you both! I found your presentation concise and pleasant. You gave enough examples that I could reference them later on if I needed them, but not so many that it bogged down the pace of the class. I look forward to the next course you produce. Thanks again.

Great instructions. Simple to follow along with the course plan and assignments.

very organized content. suitable for people who have zero background of programming.

like the quiz and small project, like the way the teacher teaches
