    What was your strongest take away from this course?

    Great course, really slow pace as for me. Good for beginners. I have experience in FE development for 5+ years - I think this was 20% of useful information here to me. Great course, thanks! I think super good for beginners.

    What did you like about this course?

    The last two tutorials appeared to be out of place, and that makes me think that is there another big tutorial that I am missing out on. Lectures were crisp, but quite some time was spent on just typing the code, which could have been avoided.

    It went into great detail on many subjects that are hard to get info on. Only wish it was larger and covered more the same way.
