Guest says:

This is a nice but very short introduction. By itself I feel like I've gotten to "advanced beginner" level if that makes sense. I can write some simple programs and get them to run. One thing I really enjoyed about this course is its "industry" perspective. Not many other courses pay this much attention to how the code is organized or why it's important to keep things nice, tidy, and structured.
