The code in workspaces should advance with each video. It's distracting to have to type old code from a few videos ago.

I appreciate the importance of asking the user to code all of this stuff themselves, but I might put in an hour a day casually. I'm not keeping workspaces open and if I lose my progress it's not a good experience. Every time I launch workspaces I want it the code to advance chronologically to the next section.

Especially after the badge milestone.

Hi! Not sure if this will help you at all, but if you press command s or ⌘s (on a mac) it will save automatically. Or ⌘L (lowercase L)

Yeah, that's true. However, take this into account: the whole idea of Workspaces is that you get to save it after each video, freezing your code at that stage (so you refresh the process stage by stage when you come back to it).

Then, as you go to the next video, leave it saved (or even better: download it), and forget about it, start a new one with the Launch a Workspace button below the player in that video. That Workspace will be up-to-date.

NOTE: I also definitely recommend you to watch the videos that Mister Moody mentioned.

He is right. One code. One project. This will make teamtreehouse better. And there is no time for coding. Very fast speech. It would be better to stop and say: "Now we are going to code". And give us a little time for the project. Finally, web server is slow. Workspaces update slowly. Maybe it's my internet connection, but quizes update very slowly.

Maybe you could try a technique that helps me when I am overwhelmed: watch a few videos at a time, without pausing the video to code, then walk away from the computer to reflect on what you have learned; re-watch the videos later in the day and code at that time. In regards to the pace of speech, feel free to modify the pace by clicking on the speedometer icon in the tutorial. I believe the pace is set to 1.1x by default; perhaps you could try 1.0x or 0.75x. As well, reading the transcripts is always useful in case you do not understand the message that the teacher is conveying. It helps me a lot when I encounter verbose language^^
