Overall I enjoyed this course. I think the one point of feedback I had was that the examples of functions provided in lecture were overly simplistic. The simplicity of these examples made some of the programming assignments needlessly difficult as there wasn't much of a bridge to get from lecture to assignment.

Excellent class with the right level of difficulty and some challenging assignments. I like that it's only 4 weeks long and gives an overview of the language.

A great course, very fulfilling!
