I just love Dr.T he really knows his stuff.

Best part is that he guides us to the "pain and suffering" of programming through jokes and laughs.

Well Done!

Beaucoup de pratique contrairement aux autres MOOC, j'ai progressé comme jamais ! Merci !

D'autres cours C# seraient les bienvenues.

Course provides a lot of useful information about creating games (for the very beginners espasially)

I absolutely loved this class! The fact that is was free just kind of blows my mind a little bit. When I was in college I was going back and forth about getting a computer science degree. Now that I'm out of college with a different degree I have picked up programming again as a hobby.

This class was really helpful in learning the basics of C# and of game development in general. I learned how to format and code correctly (using comments, where to put things, spaces etc). I learned the general things I need in a game and how to make that happen inside the Monogame/XNA framework. I also learned to have patience with my code, and to take a break if it gets to frustrating. I had some previous programming experience when I started this course, so I didn't have too much trouble with the concepts in this course, but I can see how for a complete beginner this class might have been tough. If you can stick it out though, it is worth it! The feeling you get when something finally works the way it's supposed to, even some small and tiny thing, it's amazing. I love that feeling!

The instructor was awesome as well. The lectures were easy to follow and never too long. Plus he was funny, you can't beat that!

Overall, this class was an amazing look at game development and C# basics. I can't wait to use my knowledge to build something!
