Why is he talking about "Initializr" like its something we should already know? What is it?
he talks about Initializr like it is something we should already know even though it is the first time I have ever heard of it In the Front End Developer track. I read the website but I still have no idea it means. All I understand is that it is something to help you get started with the project.

This is mentioned at about 2:18 in the video.
He says: "I've used the initializr project and modified it to get started, but if you'd like to check out the initializr project yourself, you can find a link in the notes associated with this video."
You don't need to be familiar with Initializ to continue with the course, but if you want to know more, you'll find the link in the Resources section in the Teacher's Notes tab.
