Amazing explanation and examples to help understand each concept. Really glad to enroll in this course. I am more knowledgable now than I was.\n\nThank you so much for building this beautiful course.
This Specialization helped me to acquire new theoretical and practical aspects. Highly recommend this course to anybody who is involved in Software design and Architecture!

it would be better if there would be more support from the faculty.

It would be great if the educator taught the lessons with hands-on.

Course content is pretty good. And recommend this course.

Every thing was good. The assignment review takes time :(

Frankly speaking, I would say that this course is most controversial from all Software Design and Architecture Specialization. The first 3 weeks are just studying old architecture approaches to web services and only the fourth week describes modern ways to develop a web app, but it's not enough. I would say that the first 3 weeks should be combined in one and all remaining time we should dive deeper into modern web architectures.

This course was the least hands-on of all the modules in the specialisation. I would have preferred more focus on the basic principles and more practice as opposed to many lectures on (outdated) web technologies. The final capstone assignment is also impossible to test as it is, which is frustrating.

The difficulties of the home work is not that hard. The course can definitely dive deeper on some of the topics

A bit superficial and the assignments are not challenging at all, but still worth while.

The course have good content, but it feels like it's in a state of abandonment

Lots of legacy information. Week 3 had the most value for me personally.

Not enough examples were provided to demonstrate the required coursework; the particulars of the rubric didn't match the assignment. Also, tying the assignments to an Android Studio project was overkill; the same principles could have been demonstrated with a SIMPLE java application.

Most of the content is based on out of date and legacy standards. Assignments require an in-depth knowledge of UML to get points, unrelated to the point of the assignment. Several of the review criteria are questionable. The final capstone assignment is just a copy-paste exercise to change the implementation of one class to follow the same pattern as another that has already been implemented. No knowledge of service-oriented architecture is required to complete it.

Expectation was not fulfilled. Just overview on so many theories and unrelated assignment at the end of the course. That too rated by another peer who can rate it like a robot using the pre-defined answer patterns. It would be good if the assignment are corrected by the instructor or at-least there is a way to ask any doubt directly from instructor.

it is a all and nothing course. don't waste your money
