Armando Fox, David Patterson
UC Berkeley

Class Start: 2013-02-15
Duration: 6 weeks
Approximate Workload: 12 hours/week
Certificate: Yes
Level: advanced
CS 169.2x is the second half of University of California, Berkeley's semester long course on Software as a Service. In the first half of the course, CS 169.1x, students use Agile development methods to deploy a simple SaaS app in the cloud. In the second half, CS 169.2x, students create more sophisticated apps by adding relationships between models in apps and by enhancing their apps with JavaScript. They also learn about what happens after the apps are deployed to real users, including how to monitor performance, identify and fix common performance problems, and avoid compromising customer data. Finally, students learn how to apply Agile techniques to enhance and refactor legacy code, a critical skill for professional programmers.

The first version was not as good as CS169.1x.
It is probably due to the fact that it is quite young as a MOOC.
The homework were less challenging than the one of the first part.
I guess next session will be harder ;-)
