I'm sorry this is not a question, but I just wanted to say that this course was amazing! As always, Andrew nailed it!
really?? i found the EXACT opposite.................have breezed through most of the js full stack with relatively few problems, but this express basics course i found i had issues to resolve with almost every single video, found it to be extremely frustrating tbh.
I totally agree. This is by far one of the best courses I've taken on Treehouse.
yeah i feel a bit bad for moaning now, an example is that there is a point along the course where in one of get methods he DOESN'T put a return statement in and it causes all kinds or errors to occur in the console, the app still works but he never mentions the error or shows any output of the console, it concerned me that i was getting errors yet the tutor did not mention any errors, it bugged me so bad i ended up deleting my days work and starting the entire process again from the top, i got to the same point in the tutorial making CERTAIN that i paid total attention throughout the entire video, and i got the same errors again, i felt like i was going insane because there as no mention of any problems in the lesson, so spent the rest of the day trying to figure out what was causing the errors, eventually after contacting a good friend through slack he point ed out that perhaps a return statement would resolve the issue, which it did...........so i carry on with the video tutorial, several videos later perhaps 6 videos and several quiz's later he eventually mentions the error and tells you how to resolve it. it really irritated me because i hadn't made any mistakes, i didn't do anything wrong yet i spent the entire day really stressed and started telling myself that maybe i'm just not cut out for this if i cant even follow a simple code along lesson, wouldn't it have been better to perhaps address the issue of the errors as they occur??so that people don't drive themselves mad thinking that they have made a mistake somewhere, and this as not the only time something like this occurs during the express basics lesson, on several occasions I've found myself extremely stressed because it seems like i'm making mistakes, when in actuality i'm being given deprecated information, or there is just little to no acknowledgement that some this information may be outdated etc.
Rant over, on the whole i've found my time with Treehouse extremely beneficial, and have learnt a ton of cool stuff!
I'm very late to the party, but bravo Treehouse, Andrew Chalkley, and Joel Kraft for this incredible course. It was a dense challenging course for sure, but invaluable to see the Express development process broken down step by step and so thoroughly explained. I went through each lecture more slowly than any other course so far and will likely go through it a couple more times.
