Framework Basics

Hello :)

I just have a few thoughts I would like to share about this course...

I've been finding it rather difficult to follow along with the lessons, as it seems I need to re-download the new project files every other video. I understand trying to make things a little quicker but I would much prefer it if we were able to following along with everything from the start with the base project files. The way this currently is set up made it pretty much impossible for me to follow along properly.

Maybe instead of having to download the entire project files every video, there could just be a little link on the video page containing the code-snippets we are going to add? I just feel something like this would make things a lot smoother for anyone who wishes to follow along with the course.

Another thing I've noticed, at least with the bootstrap portion of the course is that the glyphicons don't work with the given projects files. I did some digging and it seems that there is some sort of bug with bootstraps customize builds. I had to download the full bootstrap framework from the website, grab the four font files from inside, and replace the font files in our customized set up directory. This fixed the problem and all Glyphicons were showing up correctly. Just thought I'd mention this for anyone else having difficulties with this.

Just a couple suggestions I wanted to make. Thanks for reading :)
