Good program, if not a little outdated and lacking.

Luis Ángel M.

I really enjoyed this learning experience. I learnt a lots.

Josh L.

Fantastic curriculum from Udacity, as per usual. Great division of lessons. Bite-sized chunks to get your confidence up. Then, it's time for the projects. Lots of struggle. Lots of trial and error. But persistence will win the game for you.

John P. E.

It was brutal, but the mentors did an excellent job of assisting me. I really appreciate the help from DiegoP through a rough part of the project I just wasn't getting. After college, you feel like you walk away learning nothing. With Udacity 's programs, I walk away feeling like I have a solid foundation to effectively build from. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity and for Andy for his advice that "Anyone can learn anything". It has been my mantra that has pushed me through both nanodegrees and will continue to assist me in my journey.
