    This is a commercial, not a course

    This is all about a book: "please purchase my book and then you'll know how to that instead of build an app you will create a web for mobile devices"

    • Luz Garay

    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.

    • Vivek Prabhu

    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.

    • Mircea Lungu
