Reviews

If you've had no prior experience with algorithms or programming, this unit will be quite intense and difficult. It requires spending a lot of time working on assignments and learning content, especially because the lectures aren't great and confusing. It can be especially hard for coding beginners since you pretty much have to learn python from scratch on your own (basics of python were only covered for two weeks). If you're thinking about doing this unit or have to take it, I would highly recommend learning python before the semester starts (codeacademy has a good introductory course) as this will save you a lot of time with assignments, and allow you to focus more on learning the content. Overall it's a good unit, but definitely not an easy bludge first year unit.

This subject is by far the most poorly pieced together subject I have ever studied. The lectures, which are made quasi-compulsory, were painful to sit through. The lecturer often rocked up late, did not seem to have even looked at the slides before the lecture and would ramble on in barely coherent speech for 10 minutes in an unsuccessful attempt to explain a concept, before simply saying "is it clear?" and repeating the process. This would be less of an issue if the only real resource for this unit weren't these lectures and the incredibly vague and poorly put together slides. Once you go online and watch competent people explain the same concepts you realise how badly this unit is taught. If you are not an IT or computer science student, seriously save yourself the pain and frustration.

If you have had prior experience programming then this subject will be a breeze in terms of content, however painful the lectures may be to sit through. If you have had little to no prior experience but an interest to learn then you may enjoy the subject. The assignments were time consuming, beware of spending too much time on coding and not enough time learning the actual content.

This was one of the worst units I ever taken. I came into the unit with no programming background which made things hard but the way they taught everything made me loose my mind. It was extremely stressful as my other units were time consuming too. If you are thinking of doing some hard units along with this unit then its going to give you sleepless nights. The professor used to ramble and made everything confusing. The contact hours are 6 but if you go to PASS as well as consulations then its extremely time consuming. I regret taking this unit without learning programming before. If this is not a core unit then avoid taking it.

Assignments take a ridiculous amount of hours (had no programming experience before this unit), skipped most tutorials a lot of it felt like fluff I just skimmed the solutions and to understand them, lectures were meh but had compulsory participation through MARS quizzes. Exam was straightforward but if this isn't a core unit you should avoid it.

Would not suggest if you have never coded before. Horrible lectures, useless tutorials and assignments which take countless hours (for only 10% of your grade).

This unit makes you want to bash your head in the wall. Avoid at all costs .

While the content of the subject was good and it is an easy subject to get a good grade in, the lectures (especially in the second half) were terrible and the assignment required a beyond ridiculous amount of hours. I wouldn't recommend this subject unless you have hours to spare and can deal with shocking lecturers

I loved this subject, but I know people with no background in programming struggle with it. This is the deciding subject if you'd like to see how you'd fare in computer programming. They teach fairly quickly, so if you're new, do not skip a single lecture. Otherwise, once you get the basics down, the coding is super fun because end-tasks are usually creating small mini-games. Do spend some time messing around with the basic coding. You'll have a laugh when you realize your errors!
