This is a great course so far. Even though some parts I am already familiar with, there's always something to learn. For example in the comments lesson there was an unexpected tip about doxygen. Overall, I think Daniels a great instructor and look forward to future courses.

No nonsense to the point development, exactly what it says on the tin. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, sometimes it was a little too quick for me, but that just made me learn faster :-) All in all I'd highly recommend this course, lays a good foundation for moving on to other emulation projects.

Again a course of this tutor which belongs to the best I have ever seen. Excellent!

I love the content. Daniel is the best. as always. The only thing I could suggest , is to use a better video player and not the default html one. One that saves the playback speed etc. something like video.js. Thanks again Daniel. I have all your courses in udemy too.

Very good course! Very clearly to explain the complicated topic! AMAZING! And when the 3rd module will be released? Looking forward to it!

Excellent! Truly understandable source code and explanations. Thanks very much. Please also publish printed books on compiler implementation.
