The instruction provided in this course are very clear and anyone who can learn coding by this course. But the course has more readable content for you to take notes and reading it may take more time.
Whether you are new to programming or an experienced guy, you should absolutely opt for this course because it helps to build a strong base with the basic but most important concepts in programming.

I would have preferred that the course include programming at some point. I appreciate the emphasis on planning and the structured approach to coming up with algorithms but I also think it builds confidence to write even simple pieces of code rather than just reading it.

The course consists of lots of " reading by ourselves" modules ,which sometimes drives away the excitement and interest. Also sometimes , difficult to understand .There can be more videos regarding the same, which i thought could be far more helpful . Rest was awesome.

The programming fundamentals course was great.The course contents were professionally curated and helped in gaining a wonderful insight into the programming world.I recommend to everyone who wants to kick-start their programming career and dive deep into algorithms 👍

Good material. I had some previuos background in programming from engineering, and there wasn't much new to me, so it is hard to judge how useful is this course for a complete beginner.
For me it gave a good overview on C syntax and some very basic programmer approach.

Awesome course! took less time to complete. Instructors were amazing. I would have liked few more video tutorials and little more actual code writing but this is satisfactory and the depth of simple topics as these is really good. I feel confident! Thank You!

This is a very great course for beginners as it starts them from basics which many other fail to do so. However, I was not satisfied with the order they taught various subject. Moreover, some parts were a bit difficult for complete beginners to understand.

The course is overall a very solid and challenging introduction to C. It is slightly above beginner level as it does throw you into all the detail which i was looking for. Hoping the rest of the course puts the content into practice making it more useful.

course is good but this course is not for beginners(who dont't see programming before) . This course is for those who know little bit about programming . Overall course is good . I'm satisfied with this course . It will help me alot to impove my skills .

Clears all the basics. Suitable even for programmers who wanna refresh their basics. Never knew basics like Algorithms were so important. The first week itself teaches you the most important stuff which will act as a base of the career...Quite Satisfied

Most of the course is very well tought - it's interesting and clear. But there are a few parts which should be more rigoureuse and a few videos that should be a little slower. I think more practice will also be great.
All in all, very recommended.

It was a really good, rather impressive course, and I could have given it 5 star but I faced a few problems in the time of explanation and the way of explaining the topics through videos, some of my friends cannot understand the video properly.

"Programing Fundamentals" is a course where basic fundamentals such as types,steps, and how to execute is explained. Duke University and Coursera have given very smooth learning experience and good knowledge to start programming for beginers.

The Last Assignment in every course is very tricky and helpful to upgrade yourself if you follow it honestly without cheating. Overall The Course is awesome The level of english might seem a bit high but is necessarily important further.

This one was really hard for me. It was made harder by the fact that you have to wait so long to get answers on questions. It seems like there is only 1 person trying to answer everyone's questions. Maybe there should be more staff.

There are assignments consisting of 4 or less questions and we are expected to score more than 80% in it. This means that you can proceed ahead only if you solve all questions right, not one single question should have a wrong answer.
By PRASHANT K•
you should add more practice question in quiz so that learner build their confidence and if learner solve that question 3 time wrong then you should provide solution of that question. and take again test of that question.
Overall the basics taught in algorithms were good. But in week 3, very few doubts got cleared by teachers, what I feel. The course helped me to be patient during algorithm writing and to think critically and to find different ways.

The structure of course was very well designed to make students aware of what algorithm really means and teach the basics of C programming specially that funny video of making bread thing(i don't remember the name of that).
By Adil b•
In this course reading is more than the videos that`s make little bit hard to understand by reading the things we didn`t understand some concept therefore we move on to other platform for understanding the thing clearly.
i found it very easy and the actually taught me the basic fundamentals of C in such a easy manner . And, the example which i will never forget is that how to write a algorithum
(by the example how to apply jam bread)

Great course for beginning programming. Unlike other common courses, which directly start by printing Hello World in C. This course starts from ground level, making the foundation for good and efficient programming.
By Andreas M•
A little bit heavy on the reading side, which is why I deduct one star. More videos would make the course more lively. Apart from that I enjoyed the ideas of the teachers and am happy that I learned until the end.
By Bernd D•
Very good first introduction to C and programming. The initial focus on logic and problem solving made a lot of sense. Weekly reviews and tests keep you motivated. Really liked part 1, now continuing with part 2.
4.5* This course is great to introduce you to the programming world, it helps you understand better how to think, organice, code clearly and the importance of this habit into you day to day work as a programmer.

I really enjoyed the readings and the video examples. The class was a good intro that has helped me think like a programmer. The 7 step method is something I hope to master as I continue the specialized courses.
