    The course gives you introduction-level familiarity with a all the 3 brick-and-mortar website building tools: html, css, javascript. I got to do many projects and created many cool stuffs using Javascript from this course. Great way to begin javascript learning.
  • Good!

    I learned a lot of new things or didn't know exactly. Thank you so much for creating that platform for us for free.
  • Julia Harbert is taking this course right now.

    Some parts are wonderful...others are extremely frustrating as the lessons and examples do not always truly mirror the assignments. At times, the assignments ask for code that you have not in any way been taught. You do end up teaching yourself, at times.

    Really bad course for a true beginner (Who never wrote a code before).
    The tutors failed to explain certain method and how it worked
  • Gary Meade is taking this course right now, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.

    I was really turned off to the point of exiting this course after watching a video describing green screen technology. It had me cringing so much that I really couldn't take the teachers seriously afterwards. Much of the content here has been over-simplified to the point of ridiculous, and while some of the instructors do a good job of teaching, others just inspire yawns. There are far better courses if you wish to learn programming than this one - look up Dr Chuck for one.
  • Sometimes it seems like the lecturers are talking to middle schoolers and at others to, at least partially, competent programmers.
