Hello Everyone,

I'm considering this course for Spring 2016 and am wondering what the Fall 2015 schedule looks like in terms of due dates and exams. I have a trip booked in February and am trying to get a sense of when to expect the midterm exam in hopes that it would not coincide with the trip.

Also, who administers this course now? It lists the course creator on the course page, but the link goes to his LinkedIn profile where it appears that he now works for Udacity. Does he still administer the course?

Thanks,
John

The person who's on video for most of the class is a Georgia Tech PhD graduate who was helping to create the course as a Udacity employee. The new instructor is another Georgia Tech PhD graduate turned Udacity employee named Chris Pryby.

This course is a lot of fun! It started on September 30 but there quizzes aren't due until the end of the course in December and so there is plenty of time to catch up and start writing general game player agents! :D

We are all aware that there is an ongoing debate on whether or not facial hair is considered to be more or less attractive in our modern world. Considering that the viking beard is now very much in fashion and you see it more than you have in the past 1000 years, as marketers who AB test everything we had to get to the bottom of this debate. 

Of course, after figuring out what is more or less attractive, we took this debate to the next level. Does the beard make you more or less productive? 

Considering how driven the vikings were, Sideqik took this issue to heart and guess what we discovered!

Man of Steel is a delight! I have seen it twice now (once in 2D and once in IMAX 3D) and am itching to see it again. This film could have alternately been entitled Superman Begins as it calls to mind the film Batman Begins both in its narrative structure and in its telling the story of the journey of the title character on the path to truly growing into his familiar iconic role.

I think writer David Goyer has once again created a compelling, thoughtful story that is nicely realized through Zach Snyder’s direction and the talents of his excellent cast. Some professional critics have called the film 'joyless' or 'humorless', but I would instead describe it as 'serious'. It certainly has its moments of joy as well as some low-key humor, but it never tosses in humor just to appease some unwritten assumption of movie critics about proper comic book film form.
 
The drama is heartfelt and the action is out of this world. For the first time on film, we get to see what truly super powered fighting would look like, and it is quite the spectacle. Hans Zimmer’s score is beautiful, stirring, and perfect. I’ve found myself listening to it again and again.

While I did have a few minor quibbles with it, Man of Steel is a wonderful film that left me with a grin on my face and has me eagerly anticipating a sequel!

Story
Tagline
Christian. Communist. Computer Programmer. Music Lover.
Introduction
I’m a software developer living in the metro Atlanta area with my wife Melinda who is also a programmer. We have a Golden Retriever-Dalmatian-Chow-Bull Dog mix named Doobie and a Pitbull Terrier named Perrin who has never met a stranger.

I graduated from Georgia Tech in 1998 with a BS in Mathematics which was always my love and obsession in school, but since then computers and computing have usurped that place in my heart. I work on computers all day and then come home to often play with them. 

I am currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Computer Science via Georgia Tech Online Masters of Computer Science Program.

I enjoy listening to a wide variety of music and try to listen to as much as I can throughout the day. I also enjoy reading about history, politics, economics, and philosophy with an occasional bit of fiction.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ and as such am committed to non-violence and social justice.

I am in favor of communism.
