I am deeply impressed by the quality of this course; the videos and teacher's notes. The lessons go straight to point the learner to the most important takeaways at each stage. It is an amazing experience going through this Fullstack Developer Nanodegree Program and I will highly recommend it to anybody. The quality of the feedback from reviewers is world class. I want to use the opportunity to appreciate Andela Talent Accelerators who is the sponsor of the course. I will be forever grateful to them. Prayer: I hope I will get an extension to still access this course if I am not able to finish it within the due time. It has been an awesome experience so far.
I wanted to have a better idea of backend web development, after working as a frontend developer and product manager for a while. I enrolled in this course in order to gain this skill to round everything up, and so far it has been a really intense, but also a greatly rewarding experience. I can't tell you how much I've learned, and how better I've become in topics that were a complete black box for me.
So far, I'm really enjoying the program. I find the way the lessons are set up with the videos are really helpful. I knew python and html coming in, although key concepts that contributed to my success have been learning the MVC model and website file structure. I'm excited to start on my next project.
So far it's has been great. I have reinforced some previous knowledge as well as learned a lot of new things. However I think it would be good if you were a bit more strict with project submissions. Feel like I could have done better myself.
The program is so interesting. I have learned new things in SQL and database management. My mentor is really helpful and always available. Thanks to the Udacity team for such a program. I am really excited to learn more new things.
Exceeds my expectation. However, I would like to request that there should be subtitles on all the videos for people whose first language is not English because right now subtitle is not available for some videos.
