Fantastic course... Unfortunately, not too many people registered, it's tough to get your assignments graded. The program is the great continuation to the 10 course R data science specialization...
Very good course for intermediate/advanced R users. Sad that you are elegible to do assignments only if you pay.

very good, an interesting way of learning.

I finally started building R packages!!! Lots of useful bits
por GUSTAVO A B M•
It's one of better course for building packages!!!
por Francesco D Z•
very useful, especially the final practical exam
por William G•
This was a great challenging course! Love it.

I liked the course a lot since it is actually covering most of the things related to the package development. Nevertheless, I still feel (the same as with the previous classes) that authors could have spent more time building the course materials as many chapters are very brief and if I hadn't had the past experience with some of the topics, I wouldn't have any idea what the course is telling me (e.g. merge conflicts in git).

Going through the entire course, then being expected to simply repackage an existing barebones package seemed pretty disappointing. I was hoping to end up needing to build my own, but I did learn what I needed to do in order to do that.
por Conner M•
Good course, but very specialized programming knowledge in this particular course, which was not the case with other courses in the specialization. Would only recommend this course for those with the necessity to build R packages.
por Daniel F•
If this course could recheck the material and get some mentors/monitors to left hints/tips in more asked topics (like a FAQ) it would be excellent

I learned a lot in this course, was difficult at the begininng but enjoyable at the end!
por Arthur G•
Informative and gives lots of information
por Kevin D•
You will learn how to develop, publish and maintain a R package, and it's quite an interesting skill that will change the way you manage your code (you'll probably always store your code in documented packages you'll host on gitHub then).
Though it's a pertty hard MOOC for many reasons : quite inactive community, information you'll get in lessons isn't enough to complete assignments, course material is just book you'll have to read (no video, no interaction), you'll probably have the feeling you're going through something that's not really finished. Don't follow this MOOC if you want to avoid being frustrated because most of the time you'll be.

Course material is a bit light, missing useful pieces of information. The example code is functional but not of sufficient standard to pass the documentation exercise. The solutions to the exercise are not covered in the course material. It takes a lot of outside work to get a good mark. Course is good, but the material needs a bit of work.
por Min P•
This course gives learners excellent opportunity for R package building and documentation.
The course format is pretty much the same, reading material of the book, and do peer-graded assignment.
Prior exposure to Github experience will be valuable.
por Carlos C•
Easy at first, very challenging at the end. Some of the course materials really need to be updated and expanded. Mentoring should be improved (include mentors on this course).
por Eduardo B G•
The content was good but I have missed the videos. I can read a book, the experience with video demonstrations is better than this aproach.
por Rafał G•
The amount of uncovered yet crucial issues is too damn high. For week 4 assignment I did most of my research on stackoverflow.
por Kevin A•
It was a very challenging course at least for me but i think it is not necessary.
por Krzysztof K•
OK but really basic
Outdated materials, like those related to travis and devtools
por Igor P•
Basic course no more then that
