by Jason completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
Very robotically delivered and too expensive for the amount of content. $60 for less than an hour of dry lectures and really trivial quizzes. This should be a YouTube developer evangelist series, not a paid course.
