Best MOOC for Data Structure & Algorithm? [2016]

Hello /r/learnprogramming, There are 3 Data Structure & Algorithm MOOC course I am looking at. They are all from Coursera. UC San Diego - Stanford University - Princeton University - I hear a lot of good things about the Princeton one but the information thread was outdated. I was wondering if anyone tried these courses and provide input in which ones are better. I looking for one that focuses more on programming rather than mathematical theory. Feel free to recommend ones that I didn't mention. Thank you reddit.

Opinions on Coursera's Object Oriented Java Programming Specialization by UCSD?

Here's a link to the speicalization.

I'm a fresh UB electrical engineering graduate and I realized that I liked coding in my senior year, when I built a sweet Mario-like game in VHDL on an FPGA. My aim is to get a full-time job in coding, preferably ASAP. Despite being an EE grad, I don't want to code in VHDL C/C++ for many reasons, one being that I very much prefer Java to them.

I've completed the first course in the specialization (Java OOP) in two weeks and I'm loving it so far. Planning to start doing personal projects soon (maybe after the second course (data structures)?).

I want to know if it's worth going through the whole specialization in order to get a job. It'd be awesome if someone could lay out a track to get a job and how long it would take. Also, what are currently the most in demand frameworks/skills right now?(BTW, I'm also doing Andrew Ng's Machine Learning course on Coursera and the AWS Solution's Architect certfication)

I'm currently teaching myself data structures and algorithms. I was struggling with trees, and I came across this Coursera course (from Coding Interview University). It's been amazing, and I finally feel like I understand them. Judging from the quality so far, I would definitely trust Coursera courses in the future.

I can't speak to Udacity or Brilliant. Udemy can be hit or miss...I'd say pass on that for this topic. I think of Udemy as more for learning development itself, e.g. React or Spring.

I've taken this specialization:

It's from UCSD and it was very helpful for me. Also, you don't have to pay if you can't afford it. Just apply for financial aid.

I'm taking this one now:

It is more advanced than the initial one so it might not be too easy to grasp at first. Same rules apply re: Financial aid.

You will get a certificate at the end of each course that shows that you have the knowledge.
