    Good information, but doesn't seem to be very updated

    I added this class to my queue last week - I didn't realize that it hasn't been updated in some time. The videos refer to 2012, and the most recent interaction on the class was 4 months ago. I went to the site to look into the book but it doesn't look like it has been updated recently either. I didn't try ordering, but I think I will go back and give it a shot. The information was good, however I don't know how relevant it is at this point.

    Video meant to push her book

    Basically this is a web book trailer - every slide or other slide is used to push the book. The author explains few concepts - and this is definitely not worth spending your time on. The course name was the 'Bootstrapper's guide to the Mobile Web' and not sure when the 'book trailer' was added.

    loved it

    very good

  • Shelley Giese
    Mostly a promo for the book

    This course was OK and there are some parts that are useful but mostly it is a promo to get you to buy the book. Each chapter or lecture starts the same and the final 1 1/2 to 2 minutes of each lecture was a repeat of what you will find or learn if you buy the book....this got very boring and I tended to try to skip to the end once I hit those final 5 slides or so. I am not sure if I want to buy the book yet. This course is not for web designers or developers but more for the do-it-yourselfer who wants to do their own site quick and cheap. For that purpose it is a good course and buying the book afterwards would be a no-brainer. For Web Designers/Developers - not a lot here to work with unless you want to use cloud services or mobile templates.
