Did i miss a video? There are things in this video that were not introduced in the earlier videos, that I don't know.
Seriously, if we need textmate, could we talk about it a little. It's not a program I'm familiar with. When did we cover console? I feel stupid and frustrated, like I haven't done the homework. Maybe I did skip something important, but I don't see where.
I would HIGHLY recommend downloading Sublime Text 3 http://www.sublimetext.com/
Checkout Console Foundation course http://teamtreehouse.com/library/console-foundations
P.S. Don't let it get to you about feeling stupid. I have been doing this for a little over a year and I still feel dumb sometimes. My friend has been doing this for 6+years and is a teacher at USC and still feels dumb sometimes. Any developer that says otherwise is lying.
Just use it as motivation to learn more. But most importantly, understand that you can and never will learn and remember everything. There is just far to much information.
If you are every really stuck. Make sure to checkout Stackoverflow.com
P.P.S. If you need help setting up and learning Sublime Text. Just let me know. I can help you with whatever you need.

Andrea - Thank you for making this comment - I too am in the same boat. I feel like this video quickly skimmed over some crucial info for beginners.
Jared - I have Sublime Text 2 downloaded on to mac and I am unsure how to recreate these files....and once I do that, how do I get the code I write in sublime text to show up in my chrome browser. So lost.

Agree with this post. I was confused as to how he got that html file there and he never said anything about textmate either.
Matt The previous HTML beginners videos only teach you how to work with treehouse workspaces but they don't teach you how to work with the actual programs in your computer, at least not the ones in the front end developer track. Although most of the stuff can be figured out in google, i think it would be faster and much helpful if the teacher gave us an intro to all the technologies he'll be using.

If you have the time, I would watch at least the intro html courses.

Also, not all of us are working on a Mac and having both Mac and PC options listed as well would be appreciated.

I think you the easiest solution is to simply use Treehouse Workspaces. It's been covered in earlier courses you don't need to install anything.

All in all you write and save your webfiles with the help of an editor like notepad or TextPad or Brackets (free download from brackets.io) or tons of others. When you save this like index.html in a directory on your C: drive with the name of localtreehouse, you open the index.html file with the help of your Chrome browser and it's 'URL' will show as: file:///C:/locolhosttreehouse/index.html. Now by opening the developer tools of your Chrome browser will bring you in sync with the video.
