It has been really great. I took the intro to programming to help me take on a new career path. I am so satisfied with the course content and the manner at which it was taught. I can say that I have not just learned something new, but i have also been taught to do it.
Excellent program, great introduction to different areas (languages) in programming. Great foundation to build upon.
My experience here at Udacity has been a great learning experience for me! I have learned so much and even more quickly that I managed to be finished in 2 weeks because of my interest! Thank you Udacity!
I could have done free courses on these subjects, but chose not to. I always focus the most on the foundational concepts, and that's what Udacity exceled in. They provided every service, be it 1 on 1 mentorship, self-paced learning, or any help in general. The projects were not challenging, but not too easy either. The reviews were honest and detailed. All in all, the nanodegree stood up to its name, introductory. They even gave tips on how to learn further, never forced to take up another nanodegree. For me, this world class education was value-for-money.
