    Just to clarify, both the course and the workshop are FREE. The Udacity course has a premium package that includes a mentor to help students through the course.

    The Study Jam provides three mentors (Shiv, Andrei and myself) to help all the enrolled students through the course. The students joining the Study Jam need to signup in and that will give them access to the Udacity course free version.

      hi. Do we need to get our laptops while attending the session?

      February 4, 2015

    • David G.

      Hi Vaishali, it'd be good in case you have any doubts about this week's session. We won't be going through the entire session but answering questions that people have.

    Can I just clarify, this is a workshop for the first lesson of the Udacity course, which you need to sign up for at $200/month and which is likely to run for 10 weeks?
