Request: Put a copy of the complete code in the Teacher's Notes

Hi, I'm wondering if it might be possible to put a complete copy of the code somewhere, eg the Teacher's Notes, and/or cumulative code as the course progresses.

I'm finding it quite hard to skip between the workspace and the video lectures and being able to copy/follow the relevant code directly from a printed out version would be really helpful to me. It would also, I think, make it a lot easier to get a sense of how the whole thing fits together.

It also means that if I make a small mistake which doesn't show up til later, its that much easier and less frustrating to fix.

As an aside, I am really enjoying the two courses, and they are making Java come together for me. Any plans for any more Java courses?

Hi Edith England !

Glad you are enjoying the course.

Here's a few tricks I should explain a little better. If at anytime following along you accidentally lose your place or break things inadvertently, you can simply delete your workspace. If you click launch workspace on a video a new workspace will launch write where I am starting at in the video. Also, if you choose File > Download Workspace in the workspace window, you can get a zip file of everything.

Hope that helps!

I have just started scripting out Java Data Structures and will add it to the roadmap once I get an estimated release date on it. Until then, I highly recommend checking out the Android Development track as it will work your Java muscles, and give you new super powers of creating apps!

Thank you, Craig, I will try out those tips. I actually started the Java courses as part of the Android Development track, I think possibly before they were integrated, and the Java courses have really made a difference to how well I understand the Android course. Very exciting for it all to come together, at least a little!

I'm really looking forward to the next course. Thanks again.
