Did you struggle with this course?

I struggled to follow this course, but I don't think it's because my programming skills aren't where they should be for how much I've studied and practiced. I think that the code for this course is poorly structured and messy by professional standards. I have some experience using object-oriented techniques with JavaScript, and I can say that it makes the organization of code much more elegant and easy to follow. I think that once you get into more advanced courses covering frameworks and OOP, the code will be structured better and easier to read and follow. So keep pushing through!

Yes, for those who haven't taken it or didn't follow the while thing closely, there were even errors in the video code that you have to read the questions/answers to fix. I know if you do this as part of the Techdegree path you won't have the necessary SQL knowledge unless you take extra courses on the way.
