An Amazing Technological Gift

I earned a BS in Computer Science in 1986, worked as a mainframe programmer for many years, and am using Stanford's classes on iTunes U to reinvigorate my CS skills. These online courses are the greatest leverage of technology I've seen in my lifetime. To have free access to lectures of this caliber is to change lives, mine among them. I started with CS193P Fall 2010, doing the homework assignments as time permitted (I have a full-time job) and am now continuing with the Fall 2011 class. I have advanced at my own pace, re-watching the lectures many times until I understand the concepts well enough to complete the assignments. I must say I am impressed that Stanford's students are able to keep pace with Paul Hegarty, who packs each lecture with a dizzying amount of content. The video quality and production values are top-notch, with Stanford confidently showing the way to make course content available online. Students, teacher, and administrators all earn an A+.


How do i use it? Looks confusing

Great course!

I can't believe people give 1 star reviews because they had trouble downloading. That has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COURSE! If you're having problems with iTunes, let Apple know, but don't mess up the ratings so people think a great series of lectures is only average.

Mr. Hegarty does a great job of walking you through the details of how to build an iOS app. This is not for beginners--you need to understand object oriented programming and familiarity with C is a big plus. If you've got those prerequisites, you WILL be able to write a sophisticated app after watching a few lectures.

I'd like to give kudos to whoever edited these videos. Someone put a LOT of work into getting the sound right and cutting between the lecturer, the slides, and the demos. You can't just set a camera up in the back of the room and get results this good. Thanks to whoever did all that work. It makes these lectures a pleasure to watch.
