Accent was a bit thick at times but otherwise a really solid instructor.

Please come back to teach 10B. :(

Very difficult to understand. Not a fun time.

You're better off learning from the textbook than going to Dr. Balague's. He is by far one of the worst professors I have had at UCLA. He doesn't actually teach anything in class. He tends to just copy and paste codes onto his compiler and show you how different things work without going into much detail. He is rude and unhelpful to his students. Is only available for office hours 1 hour per week BY APPOINTMENT. He prefaces many questions directed at him with "well you should know this". Homework can be incredibly tedious and time consuming. Oh, and the worst part is that if your project doesn't compile ( even by the slightest error in one line in your code), you can't get higher than a 50% on that assignment. Midterms and final were difficult, with questions ambiguously worded (and Balague not willing to clarify any wording during the exams). HE'S THE PROFESSOR FOR THE LAST AVAILABLE LECTURE FOR A REASON. DO NOT TAKE HIM.
