    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    it was a fun introduction to coding with python, i have taken many coding classes before and found this one to be slow enough pace for beginners yet engaging enough for those with experience.

    Course highlights:

    i learned how to code a maze that allowed the user to control it and prevented the user from going through preset walls that i had laid out. this was one of many highlights in this cores and it is the one i think is the most entertaining to learn

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    make sure to stay up with the assigned homework, and if you have a question do not be afraid to ask . this cores is a great cores for anyone looking to learn a new coding language.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Dobbs is a teacher that has been teaching Java for quite some time now, and as such, has developed methods to deliver that content to students in an easily understandable format. That being said, there is very little critical thinking and innovation involved as most of his lessons involve a step by step approach to programming, where as in the actual work force, you are often going to have to design programs from the ground up.

    Course highlights:

    The course is taught using Java, which is an excellent programming language to start off of, and is easily transferable to other languages. The final project has a fair amount of difficulty, but you are given ample enough time to work on it, both in and out of class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you know how to plan and design programs on your own. I recommend using websites like codefights to help you further your understanding of programming.
