It was absolutely unnecessary to teach here the Alpha version, why not stick to Bootstrap 3 until B4 is in producton?

It was absolutely unnecessary to teach here the Alpha version, why not stick to Bootstrap 3 until B4 is in production? You juts made a lot of problem and confusion teaching an Alpha version... what you show in the Bootstrap page is now in a different location and works with different syntax...

Hello, Robert! I think it should be more wise to change your statement a little: probably FOR YOU it was absolutely unnecessary to learn Bootstrap4 if you don't know the previous version. For me as I work with Bootstrap3 the course was very useful. Hope you agree that the development tools and technics change so quickly so a good developer, to my mind, must be ready that tomorrow was yesterday. Also I see now that some clients (not many, but possible to meet such "advanced" persons))) who want particularly Bootstrap4 and write about it in their job proposals now.

And if you feel disappointed that you can't use Bootstrap3 and have to use in your projects I can recommend a well-explained video by Derek Banas, it's a little bit more than hour.

Also, it can be useful to watch the video about the differences between 3 and 4 , it's only 12 minutes long.

Good luck!

Thank you for the links. Well I may change the tittle to: For 95% of the people learning here it was unnecessary to learn B4 "alpha" while its not complete. Nearly all videos are outdated with necessary comments below them for the changes...it looks very unprofessional work by Guil...I am sorry this is my opinion. If I were responsible for the course I wouldn't start teach something that is not ready yet and wait till its "production". Its one thing that development technics change but other thing to teach something that is in "alpha" version while there is a complete version that was used for years and still is.

Ok) Finally it is not so important how to call it, I wanted mainly to help you to get out of this situation as I can. On the channel by the second link there is also Bootstrap3 as I remember, even may be more fresh. The last one I didn't watch, but the content there is good, to my mind. As to outdates, yes, met with such and similar comments(

I think you're acting childish bro, just speak for yourself I think I was on that 5% that wanted to learn B4. If a newer version is coming out I'd like to learn about it, you don't have to be a cunt to the TreeHouse teachers I honestly think most of them including Guil do a great job.

If it would be free I wouldn't complain, but I paid to watch videos that content is not correct, a customer can complain about the "service". If the teacher would be responsible, he would re-create it after the changes and not leave it there for months, maybe forever(?). I see there are a TON of complain about it so I might just leave 95% as my opinion.

Well I see no-one but you complaining so... anyways, have a good day brother
