The course took a long time - six months for sure. I must say that the opinion about it changed several times during the passage. I settled on the next one. This course is not suitable for those who want to learn exactly the language and various frameworks. The course slightly touches on working in the web, but there are only a couple of tasks on this topic. This course will be of little use for those who are going to work as a python developer, because it gives very little applied knowledge, but with an excess of theoretical knowledge. A lot of problems are taken from the course on algorithms (if I wanted to study algorithms, I would sign up for a course on algorithms), a lot of mathematical problems that require studying/remembering the topic itself (multiplying matrices, solving systems of equations by Gauss, etc.). A decent number of problems are devoted to the study of regular expressions (why they are in this course I do not understand at all). Another serious disadvantage is that the course is completely abandoned. The teachers do not answer the questions at all. It is good if you can find a hint in the comments, but there are some problems in which there are no comments, and less than 20 people have solved the problem-there is no one to ask, no one to help. I have not yet solved all the problems and it is not known whether I will solve them, because there are still some where you can not do without help, and it is not expected.

The course can be very interesting for those who wants to solve algorithmic puzzles. The adaptive nature of the course didn't work for me or I didn't understand it. I found that the most difficult problem was "Longest non-decreasing sequence", but it cost only one point. Overall feeling is very good. Thank you for very interesting course.

It's very simple. Just solve all the tasks.

I overall liked this course. However I think the "adaptive" thing isn't really working. For example, after solving more than 400 of the 428 problems I got several "theory" pages as recommendations on as trivial a topic as integers, floats, lists et cetera. That makes no sense whatsoever. Also, there are a number of double problems, i.e. the exact same code could be use as a solution for two different problems.

A great course to follow if you are starting on python or at programming, or both. The course is filled with nice things to know, but the "adaptive" methodology does not really help it, as you will be skipping around the challenges, probably missing some that would be interesting, or some things you might need to know before attempting other harder challenges. Appart from that, some more information on the "intro" page would be welcome (as it would that it would be always the first suggestion by the "adaptive" system), i.e. how to get input data in the challenges. Also, it would be nice to see the input data when you fail a challenge: it would help to identify pitfalls and improve code. But this can be hacked by raising Exceptions: if *your condition here*: raise Exception(*your input variables here*)
