It's very good at explaining the concepts and also easy to understand, because when he finishes the lesson, he proceeds to demonstrate it accurately.

Creo que màs que un curso es un tutorial de lo basico de nodejs, y se queda en el camino... no por ser gratuito debería ser así. El profesor si bien tiene conocimento del tema, no explica mucho y prácticamente no fundamenta nada, además de ir muy rápido. Su inglés es bueno pero su pronunciación muy mala y los subtítulos en inglés (generados automáticamente) lo reflejan... es extremadamente difícil seguirlo.

I thought this was an outstanding course. As someone who is from a client/server background getting up to speed on the web technologies, this fit the bill perfectly. Concise, complete, to the point with no fluff, no frills. Now I have a foundation to build upon. Some have complained this course isn't as current as they would like. Maybe so, but this is targeted toward someone who is a beginner in this arena. In my case it was just what I needed. Thanks, and well done!

The subtitles are quite poor, and the delivery from the instructor feels weak. However, the content feels complete and well enough explained.

This is an excellent course. He assumes relatively little, in terms of previous coding experience. The modules are excellently crafted to only present a single idea or concept (at least up until this point). He does move a little quickly, but I appreciate that.

Explains the things is perfect manner and videos are short and sweet... Please make more free courses if possible...

This is a fantastic course for beginners. They go over fundamentals of Node very gradually so it is very easy to follow and understand the very core of Node.

Great course but it started to get confusing at the end. Wish he could have explained more of the code documentation and why he structured the code the way he did it left me a bit confused and made it harder to follow.

Starting was so good, I am sure the Instructor will make it smooth till the end... :) Great explanation, high quality, to-the-point examples. Enjoying it.

the explanation was good, but in the end, when I realized it was an incomplete course, I really had a heartbreak

For a free course it is excellent for beginners who want to learn Node JS. The option to download the code should have been given - one star less for that reason

Course seems very fast, but I hope that with repetition I will finally understand how this all connects long term in a real situation.
