HELP!! - No help during questions or objectives

i'm really struggling to work with your website! i find it frustrating when i am in questions or challenges that there is no additional help or pointers??!!

sometimes you need a little guidance when moving forward, instead you are thrown into questions that don't necessarily relate to the previous chapter you have been watching?!

If there something else i am missing?!

Hi Reece Pugh (well, never heard this kind of name, where are your from? :)),

I can't help you with iOS courses (have not done yet), but what I can tell, are these:

  • If you struggle with a specific quizz or code challenge, link us where you have trouble, someone might give you a hint to resolve your problem
  • What I can say from my (little) experience with code challenging is that it is a good (but frustrating) exercise to understand every bit of your code ^^. I think it is usually related to the previous chapters you watched, I did have a case where the answer was not in the previous videos but in the next. But hey, it was a good experience to try finding the answer, both in the previous videos (and my friend Google :P).
  • Sometimes the hint given with the bummer in code challenges are not "responsive" with what you were trying to do. That's because the bummers comments are not flexible, they are fixed (so if you forgot a curly bracket, it would tell you "did you add the class...?". It can't point you where you did wrong. You have to look by yourself, and if you're really stuck, don't hesitate to post you code on the forum, someone might be able to help you pointing your error (and explaining what/why you did wrong).

Hope it will help you. Keep it up, victory is just behind the hill ^^.

We want to tie forum posts to quizzes and code challenges in a helpful way. It's in the works, but thanks for the feedback! It's important for us to know your pain points so we can work on improving them or getting rid of them.
