There was a lot of ground to cover in this course in a limited period of time. As a result some of the topics were glossed over because of the time spent on others. The instructor definitely has a strong technical background to present the course material, but it might be a good idea to either allocate more time to this course, split into two parts or multiple parts that focus on a smaller amount of concepts in further detail.
