Fantastic! ! I've spent so much time trying to understand what was shown in this video through other means. It's easy to follow , explains VERY clearly and simply so anyone can understand ! Great job!
THE COURSE IS VERY GOOD. I JUST HOPE THE CODES WOULD BE COMMENTED AFTER THE FINAL PROGRAMMED IS EXECUTED. ALSO, THE SEPARATION OF CODES INTO DIFFERENT FILES 9 HTML, CSS, JS).KUDOS
I have watched many YouTube videos attempting to build a blackjack game, but your experience is showing in how easily you work with the JS. I am so impressed that I am considering purchasing additional courses.
It's a nice course that shows how to make a simple game in js, html, and css. It shows some neat tricks in some videos, and has overall been an enjoyable course. Also, the course has a specific section for reviewing the code. It's an important step in development, and I'm glad to see that it was emphasized in the course.
Good - I'm sure as I learn how to code more the speed at which this course is delivered will seem 'normal', however, I gave it a four just because at times I felt slightly clearer instructions/explanations could have given.
The instructions are clear, the pace is good and the objectives were met. As the course progresses, the logic and the code used became more and more complex. The pace became more accelerated, specially when he selected some code from one position to pasted into another position. Sometimes I had to go back several times to understand what changes he was doing in the code.
Nice and straightforward curse. Great to see how to use some of your knowledge in real-world apps. I'll be taking more of Laurence courses soon.
I like it so far and the instructor is fairly easy to follow. I also like how he explained each step in detail. This made it easy for me to catch up after being away.
This is my second course by this instructor and I'm definitely satisfied with the overall product, but I do have some issues. First the good: the project delivers on what was described and what I personally wanted out of it. I had been building blackjack myself and was nearly done with it, but when I saw this I decided to buy it. I wanted to see how someone else approached the process of dealing with the Ace card, and dealing with the computer's actions. I also learned more about switch/case statements which was interesting. What I have issues with, and these may simply be personal ones: 1) There doesn't seem to be a clear delineation between what is "test code" and what is "real code" meant to be kept in the final program. I very much like seeing the instructor "work" through the process because it gives me insight that I simply can't get on my own, however moving from lesson to lesson without any knowledge of what should/shouldn't be kept is more than a little irritating. 2) This is more than likely a personal thing, but I don't like how the go-to for this instructor is innerHTML. It feels very 'brute force' like and unnecessary in a lot of situations where we're simply updating the text of an element where I feel textContent would be more appropriate. In both cases for courses by this instructor, I've simply jumped to the end of the code and worked through it myself, adding comments at every point to explain what each block of code is doing, where certain values are coming from, etc. This is because so much of a back-and-forth nature of the instructor's testing makes it difficult to follow what is 'really" important. I would MUCH prefer that the instructor split this up into separate, clearly labeled lessons. Have a video whose sole purpose is to "learn" how to accomplish a particular task, and then have the following lesson be an implementation of that code into the real working project. This does happen already to an extent, but it is, in my opinion, very messy. All things being said though, I'm very satisfied with the course. I personally feel like I learn more having to effectively 'debug' the final product myself because I always skip to the end.
For this type of project I would have liked to see more planning and design of the code probably with the use of UML Sequence Diagrams. The lecture appeared to be building the game by the seat of his pants.
I have wanted to build a solitaire game and this is getting me the way to build the card decks. I am really enjoying the course to this point. I have had some programming experience in c, c#, c++, Basic, Visual Basic, HTML, CSS, JS and python. What is being taught here I have pretty much covered in one form or the other, though I have picked up a few things I did not know. That being said, this is an awesome course and it is laid out so that anyone can follow along to make the game but I think some prior HTML, CSS and JS experience would better help you understand exactly what is being done and why. The instructor goes briefly over what and why, but you would get more out of it if you research things you do not understand and learn more about them. Again, I really like what is being done and how it is being presented. Just completed the course and thought it was more than worth my time. Thank you for providing so much information on creating a wonderful corse.
