Working with files and folders

Hi everyone!

I've noticed that a lot of new coders on Treehouse may not always understand the concept of files and folders, or how to work with them. If you're new to code, you should definitely check out this blog post I wrote:

It's a little more basic than what we usually do, but hopefully this helps people that need to understand how to work with filesystems and are more used to iPads and web apps that don't have files. :)

Nick Pettit - This could use a video like the one Andrew Chalkley did for a forum post a while back.

I totally agree. I'm like 99% sure I'll be making videos about this at some point soon. :)
