    simple intro course

    Simple intro course patrick did a good job

    • Carlos Sorel

    It needs more content

    I liked the pace and the tool used (compilr.com) but I think it needs more content. Nowadays you can find more complete free initial courses in Udemy.

    • Leandro Paulino

    Not truly Free

    This is not a free course if I have to pay for the platform.

    • Christopher Leabeter

    Skip it

    As a complete beginner to programming, even I see this course as a waste of my time!

    • Nina Istenič

    It's clearly explained. Also a complete novice can follow the course, do the exercises and get some insight in basics of Java.
