This course is also a part of our Front-End Web Developer Nanodegree.
Why Take This Course? Today, front-end developers work with web designers to create the interactive experiences that make the web the addictive playground we know and love. As the size and influence of the web have expanded, so has the importance of ensuring a website offers users an unforgettable experience.
You will create an interactive résumé that you can share to the world and show your growing skills at the time.
Having a good résumé is a key component of securing a better job. We'll give you the template styles and code to create a modern and mobile friendly résumé (also called a curriculum vitae/CV outside the United States) that you can modify and customize.
### Lesson 1: Getting Up and Running
Learn about the tools we'll be using throughout the course and begin modifying web pages with a little bit of code.
- Introduction of résumé project
- Components of the résumé
- Introduction to browser developer tools
- Running commands on the console
- Appending elements to the page
### Lesson 2: Data Types
I'd pick 1.5 stars if I could.

Furthermore, about halfway in, "for in" loops are introduced as a new way to iterate through arrays. In the very next lesson, there's a warning to all students: You should *never* use for in loops to iterate through arrays. It's a bad practice. Stop using them. So, then ... why did you ask your students to do this in the first place? And then, throughout the rest of the course, the solutions presented by the instructors all loop through arrays using "for in" -- the practice that was just advised against earlier!
I'm working on the final project for this course and finding myself at almost a complete loss. I feel like I haven't gotten any of the tools I need - and this coming from someone who thoroughly enjoyed and gained a lot from the Into to HTML/CSS course, and who's successfully completed Android for Beginners...
As mentioned by other reviewers, this course does not flow well, and teaches the forIn loop skill which is integral to how the instructors built the project, and then forbid students from using it. That's fine in a way (though I'm miffed to have spent so much time on something I may never use IRL), but the alternatives were not taught well at all! I've been sitting for hours trying to figure out how to develop other useful loops for my project, and it's massively demotivating to feel like I don't even know where to start! I like that most Udacity courses give students a lot of free reign and expect us to do independent research, but at least give me somethig to work with. I am a beginner, after all!
It's not cohesive and difficult to follow. Ultimately it made me feel like I hate coding and want to give up entirely, even though I loved my college C++ course and java courses. Not sure why but this makes me feel like I would be better off as a landscaper. But seriously, it jumps around so much it will have you guessing at the quizzes and doesn't fully explain what you need to know as to go thru it.
