    This course is a perfect example that having smart instructors who are passionate about what they are doing is not enough to make for good instruction or a good class. Udacity's course offerings are generally top notch in quality, but this one seems to...

    Nicholas Pringle completed this course and found the course difficulty to be hard.

    The course follows a narrative of the development of a game called GRITS. The course instructors take you through all the steps of making the game and throw in some handy information along the way. The students are assessed by completing missing parts of the javascript code that is needed to run the game.

    The course is set at the intermediate level. The material was quite difficult for a novice JavaScript programmer like me. I did go through the optional Optional HTML/Javascript crash course but in hindsight I should have paid more attention to it!
