He is the BEST professor I've ever met. I enjoyed every moment in his class! I even want to fail the class and take it again! Just TOO MUCH FUN!

Incredible professor, incredible person. 15-112 is a very difficult course but having such a great professor makes it very manageable. He not only knows his subject inside and out, but he is 100% committed to helping students succeed and is very helpful for students who seek his assistance. Highly recommended.

Kosbie is an amazing guy. I went in with a bit of background in programming (not python though) and still got whacked HARD. He will drive you really hard, but he'll offer you all the resources available to make sure you make it through - only if you work for it. The defining course in my CMU education so far... Carpe Diem!

Took this class a few years ago. Kosbie is a good teacher who shows his passion for CS. His class is hard relative to other sections but this is good preparation for upper level classes which can get very difficult.

Kosbie's awesome! You learn tons in his class. He does go reasonably fast and also talks about life, but it's all worth it; you learn so much in his class! Just make sure you're on top of things, and don't fall asleep in class!

By far the best professor I have this semester! The class will kick you in the butt, but Kosbie is such a great teacher it's all worth it. Taking advantage of his and the CAs availability makes learning all the programming feasible and decently fun. Carpe diem!!

Reasonable amount of work, but he does not go over material very thoroughly in class. Class notes are not all that helpful

THE BEST PROFESSOR! If you pay attention in class, you will learn A LOT! All necessary notes are online. Is willing to do anything for his students and will stay at office hours until EVERY student is fully helped. I took his class a year and a half ago, but he still asks me how I am doing. Students are Professor Kosbie's top priority.

This class is simply amazing. Kosbie is a great professor and passionate teacher. He will make sure that each student is coping and keeping up good work with the course material. he fuels imagination and teaches not only CS, but also about life. A must take course in CMU. Carpe Diem!

Take 112 if you can. It's one of those courses you're missing out on if you don't. Kosbie is a fantastic lecturer and a reasonable person. But, NEVER BE LATE TO A MEETING WITH HIM. EVER.

Kosbie is awesome. The course demands a great deal of hard work, but it's ultimately very, very, very rewarding. I learned so much in such a small span of time.

Kosbie is by far the most passionate, dedicated, helpful and amazing person I've come across. Expect a lot of work, but don't fret because there's more help than you can imagine. I wish he taught all my future CS courses! Also, he's super-accessible and does everything he can to make sure we do well. Carpe Diem!!

You want this man as your professor! He taught me so much about programming in one semester, yet I learned more about life than I had in the 18 years previous. He will accept nothing but your best, but don't let that scare you. Consider it a breath of fresh air. TAKE THIS CLASS. (Oh, and dont sleep in class). Carpe Diem Kosbie! 42

Oops meant to choose 5s.Kosbie is the best. He is SO good at teaching, so clear in explaining, so invested in the course, so passionate about programming and even just about living life in general, so approachable and accessible outside of class, so wonderful, so amazing... oh man I wish he would teach all the rest of my future programming courses.

"If you do everything Kosbie tells you to do, you will be a genius": John Mackey. Can't say it better myself. Amazing professor who gives 110% to his class. He will inspire you to do things you never thought possible. Lots of work involved (expect 20+ hours weekly), but Kosbie provides so much suppor that nothing is impossible. Take this class.
