My name is Balazs Holczer. I am from Budapest, Hungary. I am qualified as a physicist. At the moment I am working as a simulation engineer at a multinational company. I have been interested in algorithms and data structures and its implementations especially in Java since university. Later on I got acquainted with machine learning techniques, artificial intelligence, numerical methods and recipes such as solving differential equations, linear algebra, interpolation and extrapolation. These things may prove to be very very important in several fields: software engineering, research and development or investment banking. I have a special addiction to quantitative models such as the Black-Scholes model, or the Merton-model.
Take a look at my website if you are interested in these topics!
It is fine :)
I was able not only troubleshoot how to download the programs needed to do the tutorials but also to run completed codes and fix any errors that came my way. This was an amazing course when getting started with Java, Eclipse, and MySQL.
I'm enjoying it so far. But I have pros and cons.
The instructor's teaching style is very good.
The lessons are bite sized and get the idea across, quickly, in simple terms.
Some lessons seems to be missing.
In the set up videos the instructor mentioned that we had, "installed Maven".
But there is NO video showing us how to do that.
I had to install Maven myself using an online guide and there were some issues with that.
He showed us how to create comments but I'm still unsure whether some of the multiline comments used in the lessons ( for example, the ones discussing, static variables, local variables, etc) were autogenerated or not.
If they were autogenerated ...I wish we'd been shown the shortcut keys for that.
Otherwise...the course is fantastic and I'm very pleased with it.
I give it 5 stars.
