Love this course. Helped me understand angular 1 concepts very well and with great explanations and coding examples. Keep it up and keep eating those cookies :)

Not up to (my) expectations.
This course is not bad, I've seen much worse on coursera, BUT is it good enough to justify the investment, I'm not sure. Following the video is tedious, and boring. The instructor gives the impression he follows a recipe, and never explains why he's doing what he's doing: he rather describes what we already have on screen. I can read, thank you! I expect much more from an online course, supported by a reputable university. I expect some deeper explanation, I want to be taught why things are the way they are. Why do we choose MongoDB over a conventional RDBMS ? What are the benefits ? the drawbacks ? This should be explained to put things in context. Toward the end of first week, the instructor switches to "MongoLab". He never introduces it or explain what it is! One sentence would be enough to put things in context.
I'm not on coursera to follow a soulless recipe, Technical matters are often dry, repetitive, boring, I need to feel some excitment from the instructor, and I need him to put things in context, to unveil what is not obvious.

This course requires more time commitment than the other ones in this specialisation. The explanation regarding MongoDB is pretty thorough, but the integration with rails takes some time to get a good hold of. I would recommend this course for just MongoDB.

I think this course is more difficult than it's presented.

The Modules are too long, the application takes instead of 6 hours up to 20-30The instructions are not en ought clear, most of things must be googled or even looked how it's done by another students ex. Module 2, Photos, 5 contentType vs. content_typeSome tests are passed even if program written wrong ex. find_nearest_place_id max_meters, i have returned place[:id] instead of place[:_id] and test passed. and this error made a lot of problems in further testsFor Module 3 it's written that app will take 12 hours I even afraid to start it. It could take up to 1 month of work, if do it 2 hours each day. Take it to attention, please. Usually this activity is should not take such long type. Make a splitting with GridFS, and Indexes to 2 weeks

Very easy to understand the lectures and is taught by a professor who is well versed with the concepts.
I recommend this course 100%

I didn't find it helpful that all the code was simply given to us and we kind of had to figure out what it did. I prefer that we're walked through the creation process, that way I understand not only how the code works, but how to build it myself.

Overall this is a great course with a lot discussion on MongoDB and using Ruby on Rails to build web services. However, it would be better if the professor can give more explanation on codes and syntaxes rather than just copying and pasting lines of codes to command line and show what the results are - we can do that ourselves, but we want to know why that works. And also, the projects are much harder than what I expected - project 2 would definitely take more than 8 hours and so does project 3. And some of the implementations in the projects are given a great deal of hints but I actually did not find the corresponding materials within the lecture, and I sometimes don't know why I have to do it that way even though I managed to get the codes work. But as a whole this course is great - it offers a different look at database and this is the only course that talks about web services rather than web apps in this specialization. I gave my opinions not because I am complaining, but because I wish I could contribute to its becoming better.
