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.

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.

Too simple for intermediate developers (targetted profile)

2 times received incorrect grades from other students.

Sweet and simple introduction to the GoLang.

The grading systems is somehow inefficient.

This course is a little too basic & slow.

To many coding errors on the slides！

Assignments are super weird

At time this course feels more like an intro to programming course than an intro to go. The assignments should be graded using coursera's unit tests rather than peer reviewed. Peer review's are not comprehensive, and I doubt most people are actually checking the code. Also, having people download other people's code is a security risk. Wouldn't be hard to put something malicious in the code that executes it is run (or even when it is opened)

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

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.

I expected to see Ian writing and running codes. Just talking like that I think does not help. I took a programming course here and it was far far better.
too hard when coming to the end sections
