TOP REVIEWS FROM CLOUD COMPUTING CONCEPTS, PART 1
This instructor is fantastic. He is exceptionally thorough and his delivery is very good as well. This is a course definitely worth taking if you are interested in learning more about the cloud.
Great course overall as it gives a deep understanding of the cloud technologies. Some homework are too tedious to finish and not really interesting.
Great lectures. However, the starter code for the programming assignment is quite atrocious. Overall, would highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn high level concepts in distributed systems.
This is a great course with a good balance of just theory and concepts, with practical ideas and exercises. The programming exercise can be a bit annoying, but was enjoyable nonetheless.
