Los contenidos son apropiados, entendibles y fáciles de seguir.
This is a very poorly done video. It is hard to understand the instructor at times and there is an assumption that several software tools have been installed prior to the training, which may not be the case. I purchased the video training for 90% off the suggested price and feel like I paid too much. Save your money.
Generally good. Please either include clear links to code examples or refrain from copy and pasting code. The instruction is pretty straight forward given that you have the necessary JS skills. I've just spent more time trying to get my html file marked down properly than I have actually programming. Only criticism is that I would make materials easier to access or just type the code out yourself.
