if you click the Questions tab in the video, you will see that some questions go back to 2014. This course is an older recording and to be honest, from the AJAX prospective today's Ajax is not much different from 2014 Ajax. I generally use webstorm to follow on with the curse content. In webStorm I use whatever I see fit, but when answering challenge questions I do whatever get me through the challenge.
