Thought it was a great intro to Meteor. Practical and easy to follow along, at least for someone like me with a Comp Sci background (though it has been many years since I really programmed).
Good course for an introduction to Meteor framework, and of course, great teacher!\n\nProfessor Mathew Yee-king makes it easy to understand all the complexities around and inside of Meteor.

The course is over previous version of meteor.js so it is difficult to keep track of what the instructor is saying

Liked this course, entertaining and challenging. Although Im not sure how useful meteor is in the real world.

Old material as meteor is not modern and course is recorded in 2015, please upgrade to react or vue

El curso es bueno, pongo 2 estrellas por la calificación que dejan librada a los pares.
En mi caso, en la última tarea, realicé el 100% de lo solicitado y por errores de los servidores de meteor (que andan cuando quieren), me calificaron con un 65%......Eso tira abajo todo el esfuerzo que hiciste. Y no se puede replicar, salvo por este post. Me ha pasado lo mismo con otra entrega en el segundo módulo.
The course is general is good. I put two-stars by the review classmates process.
In my case, in the last task I made 100% of requested and because meteor servers has timeout errors, classmates scored with 65% ...... That shoots down all the effort that You did in tasks. And you can replicate only here !!!
I was thinking in do the specialization...but after that, forget it!

I have learned many things but you need updating with the latest version and better file editor handling the examples in here.
It can take a lot of time trying to write code in. your way.
Nowadays, file editors automatize certain works, making your job easier. But that you never mention in here.

The content from this course is already out of date for Meteor.js and links are broken.
by Ian C•
Poor instructions, old Meteor version, code samples didn't match.
A lot of stuff is just glossed over and not spent enough time on.

another course with outdated content

The course uses an out of date version of meteor.js that has terrible compatibility issues with modern windows systems. It an be impossible to run meteor, or if it can be run it takes 3+ hours to start. Rather than reshoot the videos the lecturers supply users with the out of date install.
This course represents the height of university laziness with the coursera platform. If there was any integrity with coursera or this institution they would pull this course and reshoot the videos for the modern version of meteor.js.
The course is outdated, errors occur when loading the docs. You have to find out for yourself on the internet how to fix the errors. Over 80% of the Pc's world wide runs on Windows, so they decided not to explain how it all works on Windows but just for Apple. Waste of money, waste of time.
I do not recommend the specialization Responsive Website development from University of London. It's outdated and waste of money and waste of time. I hope this is not the case with all courses and specializations on Coursera
Nobody is checking the course content, it hasn't been updated in years. Although the very most recent version of Meteor is finally usable on Windows, the version used in the code is extremely slow. Worse, the result of the code by the end of the course is buggy and broken. The previous courses in this series are still relevant, but do not take this one or the next.

This could be a really good course, but it is out of date now and a lot of the instructions don't work with current versions of the software. The discussion forum is full of questions with no answers. It takes a long time to get a peer to review assignments, probably because fewer people have opted to take this outdated course.
by Juan C S•
Even though, I love the course and how it is taught, the new version of Meteor (Mac OS version) behaves differently from the version used in the course and it gave me lots of problems. I think that it should be updated or use another software.
by Catherine v N•
Files used were for an older version of Meteor.js which made installing the application and doing the assignment really confusing . Help was not forthcoming and I eventually unsubscribed from the course
This is not a course for beginners, even though you go through all previous the courses.
There is no interaction at all with the professors or tutors.
The Projects are evaluated by your own Classmates.

The course is too much outdated, I had no problems so far, but in this course I found too many errors due to outdated instructions and exercises.

No Support or response provided from this University when an issues arose with the course materials.
No real effective way to get meaningful help

Example code and lectures are out of date and its not possible to get the old version of Meteor.js that fits the example code and lectures.

Old version used.
