Comments on the course

Hard as HELL, 20+ hour projects (x4) and 5+ hr exercises due every week. The assignment are a teach-it-to-yourself format and have nothing to do with the lectures content-wise. Then there are weekly quizzes (which are NOT trivial and refer to old lecture slide decks we don't have) on top of all this which test directly on the lectures. One midterm and one final (hard as ****, like most thing in this class).

Comments on the professor

I found him very difficult to follow and understand in lecture. He never finishes a sentence so everything seems very sporadic. Great wholesome guy tho, just not great and explaining.

Advice

Go buy a coffee maker bc you will need it.

Prof: Blanchard / Fall 2020

Comments on the course

Pretty difficult. Probably won't even understand what the projects want you to do at first. This is to get you to go through the Linux kernel. One project gets dropped at the end which is very nice. Quizzes and exams are much harder than they need to be.

Course Content

Learned a lot, the material is naturally difficult and covers a wide breadth of topics.

Comments on the professor

Blanchard is a good teacher.

Advice

Just strap in and enjoy the ride.
