I think at least small quizzes of definitions would help greatly. I found I was confused a lot on terminology. During teaching you have a tendency to want us to fill in the blank for 'vocab' words, and it sometimes resulting in wrong guessing. When someone would say the right term I couldn't always remember what we were talking about and would confuse terms. I am a little nervous about taking a next course because while I feel like I can solve problems coding I'm worried about looking stupid when I don't understand the basic terms.

A few videos would be nice. But for a first time learner I was really comfortable realizing I was entering uncharted waters, and didn't know what to expect.
Thank you for a wonderful past few weeks. I really want to try to build the project I dreamed of making now, and now I have a little knowledge to do it. I would keep everything just the same for first time java programmers like myself.

I liked the whole donutland thing where we used actual donuts. It was a neat and different way to explain a new concept.
The code alongs could sometimes be a bit too long timewise, but that could just be me. If they were shorter they'd be a perfect teaching tool in my opinion. But as i said before, the whole length thing could just be me.

The class atmosphere is very laid back and cool as it is. I would recommend just keeping it the way the class is set up now.
This class was awesome, but I took it just to "test the waters" of programming. I took some coding classes in high school and didn't really enjoy them, but the teachers were not the greatest. This class definitely was a huge leap forward experience wise. I enjoyed the class itself, but i still don't enjoy coding as much as I thought I would. Its not for everyone, but it was great having you as a teacher. You were extremely helpful and understanding and I appreciate it! It was wonderful being your student. Feedback wise... I don't think i can provide much, but please keep the class on the same track as you did this semester. It was an awesome class. The way you taught, having optional homework, and having no "tests" really was great!!!
