Great course, I would recommend to everyone who wants to understand the basics of cloud computing. The course material is excellent, the instructor Indy is phenomenal and the exams are marvelous.

Just the same as the first course. Medium-hard quizzes and a hard programming assigment that is actually harder to understand than to develop.\n\nOverall a five star course.

Programming assignment is very immature. I've encountered few segfaults (in provided code, not mine). But the rest is good

The content of this course is good. Some of the quizzes are little bit too tedious.

This course is overall pretty good, but some content may be a little obsolete.

Similar to the Part 1 of the course, it has really good lectures and a very poor programming assignment.
The lectures are very good: relevant and algorithms are explained step-by-step. The talks about real-world cloud applications are great for people in my position, looking to "scale up" a business operation by using cloud.
The programming assignment compounds upon the problems of the first one. The biggest issue is that it asks you to use code from the first assignment, so if your first assignment was not implemented very well, expect to have to fix that to even continue. It continues the trend of improper use of pre-C++ 11 concepts, and causes even more problems due to the design of the problem to solve.

I enjoyed the lectures. Having said that, topics seemed disconnected. The final assignment was, in my opinion, a bit out of the scope of the course. Though I did research on my own and completed it, I was unequipped to do so solely from the course material.

I ended up struggling with c++ more than with the algorithms. Also for people who have kids and full time jobs is very complicated to complete on the time given and have to constantly request for new time.

Content should be updated(like case studies etc). Assignment needs to be improved a lot. Cod Template and GraderScript is not well thought of all possibilities

good material actually, however, the assignment is kind of out-of-date and looks no one is maintaining it. The TA just create posts and do nothing. Also I really don't understand what's the point to submit the programming assignment with python script? It should be meant to help students with the programming itself, not other unrelated parts...
