    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Barber is very particular about how he wants his assignments, but it's for very good reason. The pseudocode and desk checks he requires really help teach the theory and mentality behind good coding, rather than throwing lines of code at an IDE until it runs. He is very fair with his assignments and encourages collaboration among students, especially seeking out students who already have some background in coding

    Course highlights:

    I gained a serious understanding of how coding works across all languages, not just in C++, Java, Python, etc. That is, at the end of the day, exactly what COP 1000 is designed to do-- give base-level, foundational knowledge behind the principles of computer programming.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to his advice and don't wait until the last minute to start the homework. You WILL be up all night, unless you are already moderately experienced in programming. There is a lot of handwriting involved, and you need to type out the pseudocode and language code separately

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great professor who really cares about his students, and really tries to make it interesting. He shows enthusiasm unfortunately it's a pretty boring class. It might be because everyone in the class doesn't really participate when he asks questions, most likely out of the fear of sounding dumb when not knowing the answer. Willing to help students with work and overall a good professor. Just make sure to drink some coffee before going.

    Course highlights:

    Learned basic python programming. With coding there are so many different ways to code a particular program and he did a good job with giving us the foundations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    pay attention in class and if you dont know something then raise your hand. Dont be afraid to ask questions because you will never learn if you dont.
