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.
Good introduction on Golang's new-feature and difference comparison between other high-level language.
The only disadvantage is that students have to wait unknown peer-review progress during each milestone assignment per week.

Clearer assignments would have made some things more straight forward. Some more coding examples during the courses would have been appreciated, now there is a bit too much of powerpoint. Otherwise great course and structure!

It is a good introduction. But there are some minor mistakes in the presentation and the assignments some times are ambiguous, requiring us to use features of the language that have not been taught yet like buffered IO.

This is a good course if you already know how to program, especially C or Python.
If you like to make your own research and not to be contained all content within the course, you will find it challenging and enjoyable.

The course is quite short and informative, and quite fast-paced because of it. This is good. The downside is that in some of course tasks the description is quite misleading and there is no feedback from the creators.

This is a solid overview of Golang. I would recommend doing this alongside personal projects or other books. The assignments don't offer the complexity to really get into why one would use Go over any other language.

Peer review of assignments may be slow and not consistent. Reviewers also do not leave meaningful feedback. It would be much better to make automatic check of programming assignments.

The instructor is great! The course was a bit too basic in my opinion, and even though it targets experienced developers, some basic concepts were explained for too long.

Some of the assignment instructions were unclear. The one that people were most confused about was read.go, but there were others, as I could see from the discussions.
創建者 Tim C•
Ok general introduction, some of the code was hard to follow along with because it wouldn't compile as typed, which was a bit confusing, but eventually figured it out.

Current version of Golang is 1.13. The section about project structure and workspace should be updated because now we can use Go module to manage source and packages.
創建者 Frank H•
Would be nice if there were some demo code in *files* specifically that we could download and run? That might be helpful since all demo code given were in snippets.
創建者 Anaet H R•
The course as a beginner will be confused. If you don't have Prior Programming experience then it will be hard to understand the course. Otherwise a Great course.

I think you should explain more about how to code with examples, I didn't have a problem because I have a lot of experience but the new developers will have it.

As a experienced developer wanting to delve into Go, I found the content great. If the assignment descriptions were less ambiguous, this would be a 5 star.
創建者 daniel b•
Good, but I had to learn from other resources how to manage my source files, packages and go modules, it would've been nice to have this in the course
創建者 Michael K•
Great Course, really enjoyed the lectures! I think the assignments may need to reviewed and made slightly more detailed as there are some ambiguities.
創建者 Vaibhav K•
It was a good course but I found out that at one place, syntax was wrong and for complete code I was forced to look up on the internet many times.
創建者 Christopher B•
Needs updating. Should point to the Go Language's stdlib documentation. I liked how it kind of let you discover how to write the assignments.
創建者 Jamie P•
Course is good. Peer reviews aren't great. You could have a bot do what other students do. I'd prefer someone experienced to mark my work.
創建者 Rashmil P•
The course was really helpful the only thing is it would be great to cover how to take inputs from the user in various formats.
創建者 Saloni B•
Peer reviews are sometimes incorrect. One should have an option to get it reviewed again or challenge the already done review.
創建者 BANDARU S R•
there are some syntax errors present in the slides and concept taught in the course is not enough to complete some projects .
創建者 Mayank G•
A nice course designed to deep dive into the basics and also to make sure that some features of the language are also covered.
創建者 Seyed M H M•
the course is helpful but to experienced programmer, it has some minor flaws in it but overall it is a good starting point
