What I would highlight Despite the fact that the course may appear to be shallow, it covers a wide assortment of points. At times it is scratching essential stuff while it is clarifying stuff, similar to vim, in an excessive amount of detail, which most likely is a helpful word processor for a few, however it's many-sided quality would require an entire separate course and accreditation. Gracious, and those introduction recordings at every section... the cameraman ought to be rebuffed for it.

What could be improved Nothing bad.
