The explanations and examples are excellent mainly of how the interfaces work, the teacher explains very well. The exercises are the best and allow you to practice and apply the concepts explained.

One of the best if not the best course on Golang that I have taken. For a long time I struggled with some very fundamental concepts in Go, but today, I am confident of my knowledge in it.

An ok course. Lots of annoying typos in the slides, and the instructor seems to stumble over some of the explanation. In the end, it did teach me the basics of go functions and OO concepts.

The course material is good, and the lecturer as well. But there are too many technical mistakes within the course. Also, there is a need to beg for someone to review your work.

Content reasonably good. Some errors in quizes and assignments.
Forums unusable as everybody just posts requests to review their assignments.

3 years after, and the quizz still have errors... This lecture could have been more prepared, with better arguments, less digressions, etc.

Way too easy and way too little background information or depth, plus lack of real-world examples and a lot of inaccurate information.

Quizzes and assignments contain mistakes, which make it hard (and in some cases impossible) to make it right.

I liked Ian, and the videos were helpful and the materials covered what I thought was useful and needful information. I'm giving this course a lower score, however, because there are at least two problems in the module quiz and programming assignments. The wordings are ambiguous and in some cases contradictory leading to people struggling to figure out the right problem to solve. The course boards have a lot of questions and comments about these issues, and it looks like these issues have been there for a long time (> 6 months). Its sad because the issues could be readily fixed, but as others in the reviews have noted no one seems to try to fix these issues.

There are obvious errors like ">" instead of "<". The instructor is mentioning something different than what is on the slide. These are admittedly trivial errors but when you are trying to understand complex topic like "Interfaces" these errors make it that much more difficult. It would be helpful to have at least one example of a full program and walk to through step by step. When discussing concrete type and interface type, it would be helpful to have examples on the same slide. I was going to upgrade to fully paid subscription if I understood topic of "Interfaces" well. Unfortunately it did not meet my requirement.

A bit basic, I expected more content and more advanced topics on the second course of a specialization. What makes it the first course I give below a 3 is: Quizzes with several questions that have 0 correct answers, and haven't been fixed in over 2 years despite lots of people reporting it. So you have to get lucky with a guess or go back and brute forcing it over several attempts to get 100% on the quiz and course. Not what I expect when paying for a course.

The course is littered with a good amount of bugs, typos and very confusing quizzes, Also, the assignments are almost trivial, unappealing and/or obviously forced to fit a specific educational purpose. On the good side though, most (stressing the word "most here) of the videos are well structured and presented.

Why say something in once concise sentence when you can say it in hundreds of words? There is so much unnecessary waffling in all these Go courses. Not to mention mistakes.

Still peer grading is the laziest form of grading. I can hardly call this intermediate level. Should be downgraded to beginner level.

A broken assigment for more then 1 mon and no one likes to fix this.
All assigments are very hard to understand.

This course commits several conceptual mistakes. On top of that, it has a peer evaluation system.

The lectures are easy to follow, and the exercises can be fun to do.
However, there are many errors in the exercises, the marking schemes, the lectures, etc. All of these have been flagged on the forum, reported by multiple students through the Coursera interface (including me), and NONE have been fixed.
I also feel that this course is where the lecturer just gave up polishing it. They didn't even bother separating their video files into different lectures, despite the structure clearly being there.

This course is a joke as the lecturer goes into details explaining what a class in OOP is, just to conclude that Golang has no support for classes. A cherry on top is Week 4 assignment that asks you write Golang code with an interface containing some fields, which is right after you're taught that this is impossible. That error has been reported two years ago and hasn't been fixed to date. Waste of time and money.

Spent way too much time debugging presentations to give anything other than a one. Instructor tends to drift. Examples contain stupid typos (parenthesis vs curly brackets, line breaks in places that break the code, stray (or missing) type declarations. Just overall sloppy and I hope this is not representative of the "University" which sponsors this course

Bugs in tests. All other tasks review students, so you can't be sure that you did everything well, so it's impossible to study and improve. I would highly recommend to NOT enroll in this specialization.
