Having trouble following along the course?

If anyone is having trouble in following along this course head to u***y and they have a very good free course there. I have wasted so much time following this and stopped in halfway. This course really needs a revamp.

To learn a computer programming language, it takes time. If you are a beginner, try taking the python course, that will teach you the basics

Definitely it's not one of the best courses in Treehouse. It is confusing and in many of the videos, the associated workspace does not match what is shown in the images, which further complicates to follow explanation. I was hesitant to continue, but seeing the reviews, I'll definitely look for another alternative.

What section are you on? The advice i've gotten so far is to do the 2nd section after the 3rd and 4th to make it a little less confusing. I think maybe treehouse needs to add another few Angular Courses and maybe re arrange this one.

this class is just bad in general. It's very unorganized and all over the place.

yeah I have heard that from several people unfortunately, I am hoping they add a new angular js class soon. Fingers crossed taught by Chalkers or Dave MacFarland (in case you are listening treehouse).

coding takes repetition and practice to learn. If its the Angular JS course you are having trouble with i'd recommend taking the codecadmey angular js course in addition to treehouses as well as watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9MHigUZKEM. Its a really good introduction to angular imo,

I understand it takes time. However I do not recommend this course for Angular. I have done few other courses in here and when comparing this course with them I think it needs a revamp. This is not only my opinion if you check this forum you will find others having the same problem too. https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/teachers-notes-diagram

Sorry you are having trouble with the course. My friend is having a bit of trouble with it too and he is the one who found/showed me the Angular JS video off youtube I posted so I think it may be helpful. Maybe if enough people send feedback to treehouse they will add another Angular Course for clarification. I haven't take it myself yet, but I have done some angular and have heard about this course.
