    • Though it claims to be a full tutorial, it is really just an introduction. Mastery of Node.js is too complicated to be conveyed in a single video.

The only issue I have with FCC videos is sometimes the recording is a bit to low volume. It would be nicer if you recorded a bit louder and gave the user the ability to adjust, other than that great content as always

Quite good, you could have gone more rapidly in the initial basic part, and you could have given some example of the latest things, but all considered, it's a good job.
