Too brief and simple, more like a guide rather than a course. Seriously, what I get from the yii official guide is more useful than this.

I use windows instead of Linux

Paste code and run... In all lektions! No time to follow the instructor.

It's good, buuuuut.... when you have someone doing voice over for a product/service that knows nothing about the product/service (and with long periods of silence) it's a little difficult to gauge the outcome or the level of necessary information that will be passed on....It got better after that first voice over person was finished and the next one took over. They seemed to know more about programming than the previous one did.

No curso o instrutor o tempo todo fala rapidamente sobre um assunto super superficialmente e j sugere o aluno a entrar no site do framework para saber mais, e segue essa rotina em todas as lies.Dinheiro jogado fora.

Instrutor n�o instrui. Apenas mostra cdigo

Its awfull desynchronization of page and sound. And looks like author not good in theme because he makes wrong commands several times....

Content Provided by him was awesome but teaching style need to be more better

La explicacin no es buena, da por hecho que el alumno ya sabe muchas cosas, comete demasiados errores mientras est configurando la aplicacin y pasa demasiado tiempo con huecos sin hablar ni explicar nada.

No explanations at all !

Der Kurs ist wirklich eher fr Fortgeschrittene geeignet. Darber hinaus ist allerdings die gesprochene Beschreibung komplett asynchron mit dem Screencast. Der Sprecher sagt Dinge wie "Enter this command at the command line" und das entsprechende Kommando folgt erst, nachdem er sich mehrmals vertippt hat und zwischendurch komplett andere Dinge getan hat. Das ist nur ein Beispiel - was der Sprecher sagt, und worum es gerade geht, hat an vielen Stellen absolut nichts miteinander zu tun.

Code in videos is shown for a very few seconds, not easy to catch on mobile phones
