The screens do not enough accommodation for a visually impaired person. The menu and fonts on the lecture screen have impossible to increase. The lectures do not have transcripts notes.
Pronunciation of course instructor was not clear So I think it needs some improvement. Overall it's a good course for beginners to learn and practice alongside.
Excellent but nowadays I think our priority should be Atlassian's BitBucket, this is more useful than the others. Thank you for this great course.
It was a great course. Everyone can learn by doing. I love it and I recommend it to everyone who is willing to bump into git & git.
