In the quiz, there is a remark that the answer is correct yet the program tagged it as in correct. also there could be an instruction to just use glide in the web browser instead of using the VM.
This course is amazing. It provided me an opportunity to do what I love. I was looking for a way to built apps but I didn't know how to code. This course was a great help.
I really liked the project and I would recommend to you too if you don't like coding and still want to explore this is the best way. And also it is very beginner friendly.
Other than some weird background noise distortion from the professor's side, I loved this course very much, and learned how to build an app in Glide
