JavaScript AJAX Basics (retiring) Programming AJAX AJAX Callbacks

Where's the Workspace for this project?

The Workspace button is just missing. I thought maybe it just wasn't available for the intro video, but then Dave started working on things, and I still have no Workspace button. Aside from downloading the project files and setting up my own test server, which I don't really want to do, I'm stuck.

OK I had the same question. Having worked to the end of the Badge I have discovered that for steps 1-11 there is no Workspace. You need to simply watch the videos and do the tasks/quizzes. Then at Step 12 "Stage 2 Challenge" a Workspace is provided which you then use to complete this step (if you elect to actually take the challenge)! Other than that there are no workspaces for this Badge :-)

On the left side of the screen there is a workspaces button, you can select this button and make a new workspace for the project :)

For those who aren't seeing what Johanna is saying, here's a screenshot. When you click that button, you'll see the last workspace you had open at the top. Click on the title of it, and you'll have the stuff so you can follow along.

I spent about 10 minutes trying to figure out this same question. 1:09 into the video, Dave quickly says: "Let's look at the code from the last stage." They really need to add the launch workspace button.

I believe you continue from where you left off in the workspace from the last stage, that is, AJAX Concepts.

At least, for the AJAX Callbacks video.

The workspaces button is not showing up in my browser (Chrome Version 38.0.2125.122 for Mac). I believe that is what Adam is referring to.

Not seeing it in Firefox 31 either.

After going through it, I think the missing workspace is intentional, and we're just supposed to follow along. It would have been nice to know that ahead of time though.

Looks like you continue with the workspace from AJAX basics

I opened a new browser window in Chrome, opened a Stage 1 page link from my browser history, and opened the Workspace from there. The code I added in Stage 1 was still saved.

Yes, you are supposed to work from stage 1. Incidentally, the example he's using in the video is not quite the same as the code in stage 1 because there's no button to send the request.
