Hey, guys, I started Harvard’s CS50 on edX a few days ago, currently on week two. Has anybody here taken this course? What do you think of it? And, more importantly, what did CS50 gave you (if it gave you anything at all)?
In my opinion it’s just amazing. Dan’s teaching style is incredible, he really can EXPLAIN what’s going on, not just say “do this and that happens” - he explains WHY this is happening. Shorts are quite helpful, tasks in problem sets are challenging. I feel although that I know some of that stuff - I started learning how to code a couple of months ago. And pure C syntax… devil tortures Hitler and Dracula in hell with pure C.
So, share your experience about CS50 (and maybe some other “big” courses, like MIT 6.00.1x which starts on the 30th of August btw) with us please.
