Quarter Taken: Summer 2017 Submitted Sept. 5, 2017 Grade Received: A-

I've taken coding classes before and absolutely hated them. Somehow Professor Young has shown me that coding is actually a lot of fun! His real life application related to bioengineering make the class much more relatable and understandable. He was also very helpful when I had questions about code and pointed at certain lines that might have contributed in causing errors.
Overall, I had a great experience with Professor Young and would have no qualms about referring other students to his classes.

Quarter Taken: Spring 2017 Submitted July 12, 2017 Grade Received: A

Ethan is an incredibly helpful professor. He and the TA's respond very quickly to emails regarding questions on the projects, and they are very helpful when they respond. Just make sure that you explain your methods behind your thoughts in your script, and you will get a good response back. The homeworks (there are 8 of them) don't take that long, maybe 3-4 hours overall. I only went to the first lab section, my TA wasn't helpful, so I just did my homework during that time. I have zero coding background, so this was my first coding class. The final project was a bit trickier, but incorporated everything we've learned all quarter. I highly recommend Ethan for this course.
