Love Bruce!! Super nice with grades and gave us an extra credit quiz worth 30 points. Can tell he is really passionate about computer science and tries really hard to help with all questions that come up. Something new for this quarter was that our 7th project was a open-ended design your own type project which I thought was really nice (adding on to/based on project 6). Overall a super nice professor and would definitely recommend taking CS31 with him over any other professor.
Also discussions aren't mandatory but I would recommend doing the optional worksheets as they are really useful in solidifying your understanding of the concepts.

Professor Huang is a great professor and I would highly recommend taking his course. Throughout the quarter, it was very clear to me that he cares a lot about teaching and the quality of the content that he puts out. His lectures and slides are easy to understand and he's extremely accommodating and willing to help out his students. In addition, there were a ton of useful resources available. In terms of how the course was constructed, the exams and projects were fair and the course ran smoothly!

Huang's an energetic professor who explains things well and evidently cares a lot about his students. He was super understanding with misunderstandings in CCLE and would do his best to clarify things through email or on Piazza. Would recommend if he teaches again

Bruce was such a fun professor and he's a really nice guy who cares. However, I didn't really learn that much from lectures and more drew from previous knowledge. He was super fair with grades and gave very generous extra credit. His CS31 class was generally on the easier side so IDK how well it prepares you for CS32 since I didn't take it (but I did hear people who had Bruce struggled more). Discussions aren't mandatory which was nice, but doing the optional worksheets on my own time definitely helped.

I took this class after receiving a recommendation from one of my CS major friends. Although I was very intimidated by the fact that this class is taught in C++, Dr. Huang helped eliminate some of my worries. I agree with the fact that he is super kind and knowledgeable in CS as a whole, but what some users failed to mention is that he sometimes has poor communication. Dr. Huang certainly does his best to be accommodating to students, but depending on what else he has going on in his life, he will sometimes take weeks to respond to emails. Although he can take a while to respond, he has always resolved my issues and concerns regarding the course. All in all, I highly recommend Dr. Huang!

I really like professor Huang. I think he takes a great approach to teaching an introductory computer science, coming from somebody with no experience. He is, however, very intelligent which makes it difficult to bring simple questions to class because he can't simplify them. The tests and projects are challenging, but if you have good time management skills you will be fine. This is not work that can be done a few days before the deadline.

Huang is the best! He's an excellent professor with engaging lectures and lots of experience in the field (IBM executive). When I took this class, it was very very easy. There's a midterm, a final, and 7 projects. The projects are mostly very straightforward, except for the 3rd, which was much more complex than the others. He does have a bit of an accent, but he's easy to understand after a couple days.
