I would like to submit a generic comment regarding this and other Udacity courses. While I have not really utilised the mentor service, its existence and availability gives the whole nanodegree a different level of quality. Without it, the course would feel as a collection of static content - that one can find from a good book.
This experience has been great so far. I was nervous to start my first project without any starter code whatsoever but the project guidelines were clear and informative and starting from scratch provided the opportunity for me to be completely creative. Pushing students to be bold and brave is important in a new field!
I'm really excited about this program! I like the combination of videos and written instruction and the projects. Constructive feedback: The layout for the curriculum is a little clunky. I wish all the lessons were in a collapsible index on the left hand side. Having to go in and out of units and lessons is tedious.
I am very happy with the program. The instructors are great, the structure of the program is well designed and my mentor is excellent. I think after I graduate from this program, I will continue to enroll in other Nanodegree Programs. I took web development before but I feel that I am learning a lot.
Great program and I would rate it as above expectations. I learned some new things especially in CSS that I haven't known until now. Another awesome thing about the program is that it is self paced and good for people like me juggling between work, family and study.
The first part is much better the previous Nanodegree. The lesson are more clear, with better video content than before, and better explanation. It would be great if you extend a little bit more how to work with Flexbox better and grid plus Flexbox. Thanks.
