Good course

Very intresting

Learned so much with this course and Dr T is a really good teacher.

I took this class along with my teenage son who I am home-schooling. I thought it would be helpful to brush the cobwebs off of my programming knowledge -- my last programming experience was teaching an introductory Java course over 15 years ago, and to make me better prepared to answer his inevitable questions.

I love this course and the way Dr. Chamillard presents key programming fundamentals in the context of building video games. He has a wonderfully dry, nerdy sense of humor, and does a good job of giving the learner responsibility for figuring some things out instead of just handing them the answers. This method of teaching resonated strongly with my son and I, and I believe that it has given him a solid foundation to go further into game programming. Thank you Dr T, and thank you Coursera!
