i have no question. just wanted to put this out there. this whole section needs to be reworked.

This whole section is f-ed. cant work with the video cause api is no longer free. did if for open weather starting. got locked. no way we can practice this well to get better without out getting locked out of something, and skills are way high. got to get it right the first or second try. come onnnn~~~~ yall get to do a better video so i can actually practice, dont get me wrong cause i still do practice where i can, but this ish is hard.

I agree with Kayvon, Started on this node.js Course this week and when I came across this section - i got super confused. the http://api.openweathermap.org is so different to the answer/approach on the video.

really hope you guys can update this section soon.

its all good bro stick with it , i had the same issue, ended up using http://api.openweathermap.org, they have a free api key , their docs and api guide has all the example code snippets you need to complete this project. Stick with it and persistence will pay off, ive been using treehouse for a few weeks now and my understanding of JS has grown enormously.

Ellis is right, openweathermap is great and works basically the same as the code provided in the video/teacher notes. there are little changes to be made with the new api service, and figuring it out on your own makes it more beneficial.
