For people interested in pursuing graduate studies in financial engineering and learning essential C++ topics with applications to finance. The course is 16 weeks long and no prior programming experience is required.
This is one of the greatest courses I've ever taken, and I think it is actually a must if you are starting C++ and want to lay a solid foundation for computer programming. This course is really comprehensive, covering many useful topics, especially the C++ application in financial engineering. Although this course may be somewhat intensive, I can always find prompt help from the forum and my TA. All of the videos, course material and homework are valuable resources which I can turn to whenever I meet difficulty in this field in the future. Finally, a big thank you to Prof.Duffy and my TA Avi, for your excellent work and generous support!
The course is very clear and friendly to C++ beginner. It clearly addresses the key points, and the exercise is appropriate. The TA responses my questions quite promptly and the answer is to the point. I also find the forum helpful.
I really appreciate the class content with comprehensive knowledge about almost every aspect of C++. It also provides me with a further insight of what would be the real quant life. @Apalley is my TA who is always kind and reply to my questions and HW very quickly. I appreciate for his tutor and his comment on my HW.
I think TA replies really quickly with high quality and I really like the atmosphere of discussing questions with peers. I can find many similar problems I have faced with. After participating in this course, I have a good foundation of C++ knowledge. Besides, although feeling frustrated dealing with debug problems, I gain fully inner accomplishment when seeing my codes run well. Thanks for the systemic course and sound logic! It's really beneficial!
This is a very useful courses for my further career pursue and I gained a lot from this course. This is a course not only about hard skill of C++ , it is also about patience , attitude and carefulness. Thanks for APalley's help and you are really supportive to me . Also, I want to thank @Pavlos Sakoglou ,who help me a lot with comprehensive detail and guide :D
This course was a great tool to learning the foundations of C++. I definitely feel comfortable now in using the concepts taught by the course, and have a solid base on which I hope to build on this knowledge. All of the TA's were very helpful. Responses to any questions were prompt and the criticism provided was constructive. I always felt that I was able to receive instructive comments to make my code better.
Highly recommended course!! I enlarge my knowledge of C++ greatly by learning from this course. And I have to say review makes us better. I think the slides are really helpful on some key points, which I may not understand first time.
I think Professor Daniel is the best computer language teacher I met. I mean, the course is taught at the level that is not too complicated but really useful and helpful for understanding. And I really appreciate my TA Avi. He is always there giving quick feedback and help patiently.
It is such a great course. The course is well designed, the material is well organized such that the learning process was not painful at all for a programing beginner. Homework is what I found most helpful in learning the language since the homework helps you understand and apply what you learn from the lecture. Really recommended for people wants to get their heads start in C/C++ programing. The TA is also really great and helpful regarding to answering questions and pointing out the homework coding issue. Really great course, nothing comes to my mind regarding to improvement.
The class is very helpful! I have been enjoying the studying process a lot. The class content is practical, clear and progressive. Instructor and TAs are very helpful and kind, and respond to questions very quickly! The forum is also a very good tool to study the content.
