Happy Year of the Snake/Lunar New Year and happy February! For those who have been keeping track, February 20th was our 1-year anniversary of launching our first Udacity courses: Intro to Computer Science (CS101) and Artificial Intelligence for Robotics (CS373)! Thank you for all of your support and willingness to provide us with valuable feedback this year.
Read more about Professor Dave Evans experience with Udacity in his blog post. He shares a part of the story behind our first year and the Introduction to Computer Science: Building a Search Engine course. For everyone that has loved this course, we’re adding adding 3 units to CS101 on March 11! The additional units will further help prepare students to take on some of our intermediate CS courses.
Mark your calendars! Two new courses are launching in March – Interactive 3D Graphics brought to you by Autodesk and Functional Hardware Verification created by Cadence. Additionally, with the launch of several of our high-tech courses, we’ve also announced several competitions: one with Google around our HTML5 Game Development course and another sponsored by NVIDIA and Amazon Web Services around our Intro to Parallel Programming course. To participate make sure you enroll and follow the promotion schedules.
