    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I went in with no previous computing experience and came out to be a pretty decent programmer. We had four major projects, each harder than the last. We made games and a computer language interpreter. Each of projects integrated all the things we've learned so far, so we had all the tools at our disposal. It was up to us to build everything. That's why I loved the course so much. It made me realize the potential we all have and the things we can do as long as we put our mind to it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were definitely the projects. Even though they took many hours to do, you always finished them with great satisfaction. Also, you learn so much through the projects because it's a direct application of the lectures, labs, and discussions. Personally, I learned the ins and outs of the Python language and how to utilize its built in functions to their fullest.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely stay on top of your work. Don't fall behind on lectures because they are the bones of the course. Professor DeNero is an amazing lecturer and made everything easy to learn. Also, seek out help from the T.A.'s and friends. They were my biggest resource for completing the course, and I can confidently say that I wouldn't have learned as much I did in that amount of time without them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for all those interested in engineering fields or even the computer science major. It is a great introduction to the world of computer programming with very effective homework problems, labs, and projects.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to correctly use programming language on computers through the language of Python. Homework and projects greatly challenged my thinking outside of the box introducing me to higher level thinking essential for any major in the engineering world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of lectures, go to every discussion and lab as these are great helpers to understand concepts and homework problems.
