  • Orlando Ritchie Natonton Philippines The course was very very informative especially for a newbie programmer like me. Although I have executed c programs in DOS as well as Linux systems I never understood much of what was really going on in relation to memory usage. In this course I was very amazed on how the approach was to step-by-step knowledge transfer by the speaker. He talks clearly and very concise and the lessons or topics per module was just enough that my brain can process and really understand computing. Thank you so so much. 2015-02-25 22:02:45
