General Discussion

Just got started; here's some some feedback...

Hi. I just got started with Treehouse. So far, so good. There are a couple of things that I think would improve the overall viewing experience.

First, whenever a new video loads, the sound volume on the player is reset. It would be nice if you could keep the selected volume from page to page.

Second, it would be helpful if the total running time for each project and stage was displayed, in the same way that we can see the duration of each individual video. This would help with time management (I suppose you could also just add up the duration of all videos, but why not make it easier on us users?).

I'm going through the introduction videos, they're a little boring because I already know more advanced coding, but I figured I'd watch them all and earn those badges (gotta catch them all!). But they seem good for beginners and have decent production value (not sure about the eye patch guy, sorry). Keep up the good work!

+1 to the running time for each project

Also, speaking as a beginner, these video tuts are the BEST I've seen so far in all of my web wanderings. I am however missing a few 'project files' for some of the lessons so I'd kindly ask for you guys to review the gaps where a simple rb file could be uploaded to the ruby tutorials (or an edit to your videos to include time to let us type everything out with you - perhaps tedious for the more advanced, but crucial for the newbies out there!) Merci! Again.... <3 you guys !

They're pretty good. I'd also love to see Python listed some time in the future. :)
