I wanna start out saying I took this class during the COVID-19 Pandemic so this may not be reflective of the actual course in class. With that said, I really enjoyed PIC 40A. I had a little prior experience with HTML which made the learning curve a tad easier but overall I think it is a really good course. You definitely learn a lot and I think there are a bit of pacing issues. He tries to squeeze SQLite3 in there at the last week which isn't terrible but I don't think it gives justice to databases. Overall the breakdown for the course was as follows:
78% HW (6 assignments - Lowest one dropped [changed to lowest two dropped because of BLM])
20% Participation (Graded on completion and effort and 90% raw score warrants a 100% in this category)
2% Final!

He has to be the most accomodating and nicest professors I have ever had even giving us an extension on HW 4 which I thought was the hardest assignment. His homework assignment and participation activities really make you internalise and think about the material and are very fair. Be warned that sometimes I would spend about 30 hours on a HW assignment and there is a noticeable difficulty spike around week 6-7. You don't need to look any additional methods up and all the notes were posted. I stopped going to lecture because the class was 8am and everything was recorded and posted to CCLE.

In terms of Office Hours, he is very helpful and would highly encourage people to take advantage of them.

Our TA was pretty good and knew what he was talking about. I don't think he necessarily made a big impact on teaching me new material but he did clarify somethings and was willing to help during his office hours.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend taking this class and is one of the only classes where I can clearly see that the material I learned will directly help me in the industry.

This is how a typical class would go...Spend the first 45 minutes trying to figure out why his examples don't work, and then begin the days lecture in the remaining 5 minutes. You can spare yourself his sh**ty lectures and learn everything you need from the w3c tutorials. Not especially hard or anything, but nowhere near as cool as I was hoping it would be.

He is a super nice professor, he always holds office hours and helps us. The only problem is the final exam. It was kinda brutal but nothing can be said until the final grades are out. Overall, I enjoyed the class a lot.
