Dude, no way! As a double nanodegree holder in both ML and AI from udacity (the fightin udes!) I take great offense at that statement. My family cried the day I received my nanodegrees in the mail, once my final installment payment had cleared. I still display them proudly in the men’s bathroom of the Arbys where I used to work. Maybe if my nanodegree were from some weak copycat like udemy I might not want to advertise that fact, but udacity is da premier online university. And these are not some lamewad normal, legitimate degrees, from a typical “accredited” “university”. I’m talking about 10^-9 degrees from an online university that only accepts cash or credit cards, no personal checks and charges at least 3k/degree. What so called institution of higher education can give you that kind of deal?
