Hey, anyone feel it's frustrating in Google Map Integration when it comes to makers?

Did you just watch Andrew confusingly & copy the code mechanically? I suppose this course requires a rearrangement, with this video are 3 challenges in a series. I'm reading the API document now and rewatch the video.

Sorry for my ignorance if only me got such feeling.

Hi Michael,

Sorry you're having issues. Do you have the code you're stuck on?

Maybe I can give you a break down/pointers.

Regards Andrew

Hey Michael,

I did not really have problems with it, however it appeared the API has changed slightly since the videos were made.

My code for custom map markers was a little different looking than the video's at the end, but enough of it was the same I was able to figure out what went where without too much trouble.

I'm sure Andrew will help if you post your code.


That is too nice of you guys,

Frankly there is no big deal just some syntax errors.

The problem is I have no idea when it comes words like "geocode" "bounds" "statusOK" whatsoever.

Maybe I should read the doc carefully and then watch and follow the video instead of being a copycat just copying the code.

This also strikes me with another idea: How do people use Treehouse? And if there exists an official handbook from Treehouse?
