"Thank you for this course and for using Octave. My compliments for this course. It has been really amazing how you have been able to expose the main topics of the Octave programming in hardly a month. The only troubles I have found are related with the quizzes, and I know that have been caused due some problems of Mathworks related with the use of Octave in this course. I am a hard defender of the free software, so I would like to encourage you to maintain this politics in despite of this kind of problems. It could be great helping to develop some automatic Octave system on the server side to do easy the task of examining. Great... and Thank You!"
