When I began this track, I had to put Guil on 2x speed. I already had a grasp on basics.
Now, each video seems like it's a race to the end. Very little in the way of explanation or detailed breakdowns of what's happening. I type fast, I'm not new to coding, constantly hitting pause and at the end really have no idea what I've just done.
Slow it down!

I agree, i feel like this entire section from callbacks to async/await is all over the place. They may be better off using new code for each topic (callbacks, promises, async/await).
I feel the same way. I feel like everything I've watched has sort of just evaporated, like I never even watched it. This particular course has been horrible. And Guil was one of my favorite instructors here. What's even worse is that this is the hard stuff so... it sucks really!
There is a lot of content here in a very short amount of time. I've learned treehouse is a great place for concepts and seeing the end result, but after watching these videos, its good to do some self research, mainly youtube and then a lot of self practice.
