Just felt that there should be examples that could help someone to understand in a more better way.The videos were good and were very simple and easy to understand then the text.

a very good, well-taught, hands-on course. I got a bit bored with so much image editing, but I recognize that's a logical way to teach the principles of JavaScript programming.

The course is really good, but a week deadline for a new programmer especially on the later 2 weeks is not enough. more time is need to process and program and debug the code.

It's a great course to learn the basics, plus you get testimonials about how some are doing in the business. Mostly younger college students but never the less, still useful.

This course is very informative and interesting. At times I couldn't understand the programming as a beginner but otherwise my journey of completing this course was smooth.

Hello, just want to ask why the certificate uses my middle name instead of my first name it should be Johnny Youssef not Ibrahim Youssef. Can this be corrected? Thank you.

The assignment,quiz, reading, etc should be on Spanish too or at least some subtitle for people who join into this courses because they have subtitle in his mother tongue.

It's a very good course. It best fits beginners and gives them fundamental information to help them understand what programming is and how they can think grammatically.

The content of CSS and HTML are really good in this course, but the details about the JavaScript Code are not sufficient, this let me hard to understand the JavaScript.

This program was great! I also suggest checking out the John's Hopkins course on Web Development as it talks about GitHub hosting, an important step in web hosting.

This course is good for foundation of web development, specially for javascript. I was hoping for tutorial about writing code in offline editor instead of codepen.

Only the basics of HTML and CSS are covered here. The most of the course is about javascript implementation to solve challenges on modifying images pixel by pixel.

The theory section is not enough to understand the concept clearly.Sometimes,we don't even get response to our doubts which is doubt of majority of the students.

Very well rehearsed course, well made questions. I would only recommend this course to have the students to use a local IDE like VSC instead of an online editor.

There are some good golden nuggets to be picked up. You get taught some very logical scientific approaches to programming and solving problems with coding.

This course is Amazing! I learned a lotabout webpages and how to style them. It only fails because we don't see an example of javascript on a real webpage.

Lots of good information and great for a strong programming base. A few of the assignments seemed a bit advanced compared with the lessons of the section.

The information is overwhelming may try a shorter hand on coding practice more often to give learner the time and space needed to realize the information

I liked the content covered in this course and the way it was presented, but I found that sometimes it could have been presented in a more engaging way.
