Reviews

A great and rewarding introduction to the world of computing, the lecturers are passionate and convey the material well, the projects are fun and useful and the learning platform (grok) is super helpful in drilling the core concepts in. Highly recommend anyone take this subject as long as they're willing to put the time and effort into actually practicing coding.

Great introduction; gives an idea of what to expect in programming (even if that means finding out it isn't for you)

Challenging but VERY awarding subject, put in the time and effort and make sure not to get behind, and this subject will reward you.

A very fun and challenging subject. Initially, I found the first few weeks to be pretty easy since I had programming knowledge although not in Python during high school. Don't underestimate the fact that this is an introductory programming subject - the workload is immense and you can feel that they are trying to filter out students who do programming half-heartedly. Otherwise, if you put your time well enough you can easily grab 40% of the marks with enough dedication and commitment!

Very fun subject. I found it very easy though that was because I had programming knowledge before taking it. Thinking in a programmatic way is not unlike thinking in a general maths way. It's highly logical and very little room for ambiguities. The lecturers (Chris and Nic) were very good, I really enjoyed their lectures including all the guest lectures, which featured people from different industries like cryptography and robotics. From memory the assignments can get a bit tricky though they are specific, small problems so if you try a bunch of different ways to solve the problem eventually you'll get the right one. As always start early on your assignments haha. Overall I loved this subject, and Grok is an awesome way to start learning to code. Solid 5/5.

Pretty good introduction to programming concepts, which is made even better with the integration of the online learning tool "Grok". The assignments are rather time-consuming though, especially for those completely new to programming, so good time-management is needed.

The work load requires >20hrs per week minimum... Poor choice of subject to pick if you have a busy semester, and are very weak at maths/ new to programming... That being said like all subjects if you look for help, you will find it with an enthusiastic team behind it. But don't be fooled, this subject can take an immense time commitment and will put you into the lowest pitfalls of misery with each failed line of code.....

I really loved this subject! Having no experience in computing I found the lectures, tutorials and the online learning tool Grok all very helpful in teaching me how to code. The lectures and tutors are all really passionate and helpful!

Fun subject! No textbook - instead you use Grok, a super easy and engaging learning tool. Made for beginners, but the subject has plenty of opportunities to extend yourself (bonus projects, modules, etc.). Tim + Nic were super enthusiastic, and the team of tutors and demonstrators were always helpful! Some tips: 1) the revision lectures aren't really worth it, your time will be better spent doing some practice problems on Grok, and 2) start the projects early because they are very time consuming and you can't really bullshit them like with essays.

Overall an extremely fun and challenging subject. Two things I liked best about this subject are the lecturers (Tim/Nic) and Grok Learning. Tutors and demonstartors were also friendly and helpful. Nevertheless, the workload of this subject is very heavy and projects are tough and time-consuming, so you really have to put in the effort and work hard to pass the subject!
