Comments on the course

A lot of disjointed topics like cs 18200. Not the best not the worst

Course Content

We learned about so many different things. More fast paced than 18000

Comments on the professor

Dr Turkstra is a good professor. He wants you to do well

Comments on the course

Project based course is fun when you get a good team.

Course Content

The content is relatively easy to understand. Unlike many courses you actually get to make things with what you learn

Comments on the professor

Dr Turkstra obviously cares about teaching.

Advice

Do your work early I guess. Don't sweat too hard, this is an intro class for a reason

Comments on the course

Liked the class overall, the lectures do not have much useful material, but I do think the overall structure of the class is sorta nice. 3 3-week sprints where you have to finish x amount of user stories for your project per week. Very useful to get used to Scrum methodology before going into the workforce and relatively easy provided your group works well

Course Content

Lots of random not very useful terminology, agile methodology was useful and we did that too

Comments on the professor

I had Professor Turkstra for CS 240 and did not like him, but this class I actually greatly enjoyed him as a professor. Clearly cares about his students, and really tried to make sure that if the people in your group aren't doing what they need to they get punished for it, and you get rewarded for picking up what they didn't do

Comments on the course

Jeff Turkstra had many rules in this course, but the materials weren't that hard, but it's pretty hard for non-cs majors or someone who is new to programming.

Comments on the course

A ton of work that takes time, but its easy to get 100% on it. Can easily have enough points to not need to study for the final.

Comments on the professor

Turkey is hard but a good prof.

Advice

Work ahead
