About the Course

In this course, we'll give you the tools to quickly identify and solve real-world problems that you might come across in your IT role. We'll look at a bunch of different strategies and approaches for tackling the most common pitfalls of your code and IT infrastructure. You'll learn strategies for approaching almost any technical problem and then see how those apply to solving different real-world scenarios. We picked examples that include general system issues, issues with software that someone else wrote, and issues with programs that we wrote. We'll talk about problems that can affect any operating system, and we'll also look at challenges specific to certain platforms and scripting languages. We strongly recommend that you’ve taken the prior courses in this program, or already have knowledge of Python and Linux so that you can follow along with our troubleshooting examples....

The course was very great and very engaging. The inclusion of real-world problems made the course more interesting. Got to know about many new things which I am going to apply in my current life.

Great course. I learned a lot about troubleshooting and debugging. Not only learned to troubleshoot small issues but also bigger issues with applications, equipment, servers, network, etc..

This is the most IT-oriented (read "hardware") and technical course from the first four.

Impossible to work side-by-side with the videos, plus the technicalities filled the course.

Probably it proves useful for a sys-admin, but pretty useless for a newbie/junior developer.

Still, there are two things to take away from it: the module about binary search and the one concerning prioritizing tasks.

I would have skipped it, if it hadn't been a requirement for the certification.

Honestly, a 100% useless course. If it was not for the specialization as a whole, probably completely avoidable. It provides literally 0 practical examples, the "tricky labs" are a copy-paste joke with 0 neurons to put on, and the instructor does nothing but tell a story about how she solved issues she encountered in her professional life. Fine I guess for story telling, but definitely not instructive for learners.

This course was harder than the previous, but it helped me learn way more! I'm so grateful for this opportunity and I'm super excited to see what's next. This troubleshooting concepts are so handy I think I'll keep using them in my everyday life. The thing I found most useful were the practical examples, because they made me better understand what the process of debugging looks like in real life.

As one reading said, most assume troubleshooting and debugging can't be taught. It was and taught well. You have to try the many tools suggested on your own, but there is a wealth of practical info. What makes code efficient was also taught, which many ignore as not needed. Even the basics of concurrency in Python were taught. Concepts taught speak well to Google's quality expectations.

The step-by-step process of solving a problem in a real environment by a possible problem which may be occurred in a real world, was interesting. All tools were introduced during this course, were very practical while troubleshooting and debugging. I was very happy that the content has of this course used the valuable and real experiences of the Google team in solving real problems.

Un excelente curso, dinámico, entretenido e interesante, con muchos aprendizajes aplicados directamente a casos concretos de la realidad cotidiana de un rol como IT support. Me llevo muchos consejos y recomendaciones sobre buenas prácticas, así como también una grata experiencia sobre la aplicación de estas herramientas directamente sobre el código.

Everything is well crafted, but I suggest you add a small recap reading after each module in each week, that is for example, after Week 1 Module "Introduction to Debugging" add a reading of recapping the while module in 4 or 5 points, and so on for all the other modules and all weeks. And at the end add a whole summary of the course.

Las técnicas de depuración y resolución de problemas aprendidas en este curso son realmente efectivas. He tenido la oportunidad de ponerlas en práctica en situaciones reales, y un problema con la VPN que me venía rompiendo la cabeza desde hace meses, ha sido posible resolverlo durante el estudio de este curso. Muchas Gracias!

I received a valuable introduction to debugging, troubleshooting, and time management, which was presented in a clear and easy-to-understand manner. Prior to this, I had limited knowledge in these areas, but now I feel equipped to apply effective techniques and manage my time efficiently.

I am not new to Python nor programming, but I have to say I learned quite a few things from this course. The only part that I feel could be improved is the Qwicklab assessments, but the instructor was great and the information was enough to get me started on everything I wanted to learn.

The screen for editing is very small and uncomfortable, some editor commands have effects in the browser (they open new windows), and the instructions to the final exercise are confusing: the first part of the exercise says how should the code look but shows the pre-corrected version.

This course has opened my eyes about how can I figure something out, where do I have to start investigating something that isn't right, and even how to solve that problem with long-term remediation. Thank you for the instructor for opened up this whole new world for me, best of luck.

Great Introduction to Debugging and troubleshooting by Amanda.The lessons were just the right length and kept us intresting.The practice quizes could've included some problem solving.The labs were too easy or too tricky.The community forums were a great help.Overall a good package.

Absolutely one of the best on-line courses I have taken. Amanda did an excellent job explaining some really complex concepts and practical techniques. I definitely will apply what we've learned in this course in real world situations. Thanks for making this course available.

The course modules where chunk to small videos which helped me digest the lessons easier. The instructor explains her craft from the heart, not just by reading it. Examples given on the exams and discussions are real life scenario which helps me comprehend more effectively.
