TOP REVIEWS FROM JAVA PROGRAMMING: BUILD A RECOMMENDATION SYSTEM
Wonderful course learned a lot by making a recommendation system...but some assignments are bit hard to understand what they want from you but everything else is fine. Everyone must take this course
I really like this approach to a final project. I learned a lot outside of the course by using a different, full-featured IDE and writing unit tests for my code. Pretty challenging!
It’s a great project requiring good application of java. Some steps were hard to follow but understood them after some time. A good project to end a specialisation course. Cheers.
This is a big challenge. If you decide to take the call, be prepared to learn a lot, struggle, have fun, and don't walk away once you get started. Great experience!
