JavaScript Introducing ES2015 The Cooler Parts of ES2015 Arrow Functions

Arrow Functions Video

I've watched other videos on arrow functions and they were much clearer than this one. Why use such complicated examples? I have no idea how promises so don't understand the need for the example in the video.

I like most of his courses/videos, but I feel this one is not explained well enough at all. I have since looked at the accompanying workshop which oddly is much clearer to understand than anything in this video....

Nico Trivelli gave a fellow student an excellent answer to a question very similar to yours for the same exact video. I somewhat agree with you, though. It can sometimes be more complex than it should be. Especially with all the correcting. I sometimes wonder if it's best to just give the right way to do something rather than show the wrong way and then the correct way.
