First, this is a great course to get familiar with a modern JavaScript web development framework. However, a lot of the course material is out of date. This is mostly due to library versions changing at a fast rate, sometimes making instructions in the videos impossible to follow. Updated instructions are available in text format. The Test driven development section, for me, was the most frustrating. I did entice me to learn more about it, but I will have to do that elsewhere.

Although videos are outdated but you have maintained updated angular's document which helped a lot.Also reaching out to you for any doubt was easy

I really enjoy this course so much. Just that maybe because of some version problem, i am not able to complete unit testing section, but it is optional, still fine.
