Great intro. If you already know the basics, you probably don't need this course though. Not much of a deep dive, more of a "skim the surface" type course. Week 4 on IO was the most beneficial for me.
Very detailed, nice introduction to golang's basic concepts. Might need to google to find better ways to handle some requirements of the assignments, but overall a cool programming language to learn.

The course was good as a beginner material for Golang. Although many of the slides during video lectures have error in the code displayed on the screen and that can be really frustrating at times when you try a code from the lecture and it gives you an error.

It will be sayed that the target are medium developers but very very basic will be repeated often. But the important thinks of golang like references will be handelt in 2min. There i would like to have some more examples and explainations.

Lecturer's explanation too vague even for intermediate listeners.
I wish there were actual coding exercises where the lecturer is solving at least one example problem.

Course is simple and to the point.
I believe automated assignments will help improve the rigor and remove variability in scoring.

A bit messy, some examples do not work because of typos, explanations could be much clearer honestly

Me gustaría que tuviera más ejercicios con código y quizas clases más dinámicas

Instructor does not explain terms completely, examples were very limited.

More examples can be added in the videos illustrating basic operations.

Completely theoretical course. Only assignments are coding practical.

Too much water, a common blah blah blah blah course for housewives

Content reasonably good. Some errors in quizes and assignments.

2 times received incorrect grades from other students.

Sweet and simple introduction to the GoLang.

The grading systems is somehow inefficient.
by Luke S•
This course is a little too basic & slow.
by Fanchao C•
To many coding errors on the slides！

Assignments are super weird
by Kevin H•
Pretty decent course with two flaws:
tagged as an Intermediate course while going from very basic stuff.
most of the assignments can be script graded while using peer review and people just grade it in pure randomness. Somebody just gives you a full point while others grade you on a error handling issue considering the assignment is just a toy program showing you can use a slice or something
Course was very introductory on high-level topics for a class that assumes you are an intermediate or higher programmer. Requirements for weekly assignments were confusing and left a lot of unanswered questions on how certain things should be handled. Peer-based grading clogged the message board with "please grade my assignment" posts and unequal grading standards.

It's too text heavy for basic comp sci topics. It's good information but not on topic.
The topic is 'Getting started with Go' not 'Getting started with Computer Architecture'.
There should be more Go specific focused talks and assume a base level of comp sci from your audience.
Or, make basic comp sci a requisite to this course.

Peer grading is the laziest form of grading. Do some work, write unit tests, provide a decent grader. For a so called intermediate level course there is too much bla-bla and too little go specific material. Programming assignments are few are not challenging to say the least.
This was not a productive course at all! there are many syntaxes problems in the codes which by the way are only shown in the slides, first I tried to learn go using this course but now I decided to learn go using other online resources
by Paul R•
The code assignments should be graded through unit tests not peer reviewed, I had code that was working and unit tested (so I knew it worked) and someone graded that is didn't work, which was incorrect.

Why say something in once concise sentence when you can say it in hundreds of words? There is so much unnecessary waffling in all these Go courses. Not to mention mistakes.
