Took the course Algorithms, Part I on Coursera, spent 3 weeks on video lectures, programming tasks in Java (see github). There follows my impression and conclusion.

  • Took me three weeks to accomplish
  • Enjoyed it a lot
  • Repetition is the mother of learning, etc etc
  • The practical tasks and examples of algorithm applications became most interesting for me
  • Their grader is an example of a good test suite

Looking forward for another programming course now.
