This is the fourth course in the specialization. I returned to attempt to complete it, but no longer going forward. There are multiple challenges with this course.First of all the environmental setup for NativeScript. I tried the various installation methods provided on the NativeScript webpage and was unable to get 'tns doctor' to pass. Through trial and error I eventually found a method which worked much better and was contemplating posting a video to YouTube on how to setup the NativeScript and Android SDK headache free.-----Install JAVA.Install Android SDK.Set JAVA_HOME, ANDROID_HOME, and add build_tools location to PATH.Configure Platform and SDK tools via Android SDK (No need to create a project. Configure from welcome screen via lower right hand settings).Install NativeScript via npm.-----Aside from that, the material has been updated, but not the videos. Because of this, the videos don't match the homework material.Example: (Not the first, but...)Week 2 - Buttonsfavorite.services.ts - favorite: Array, all functiondishdetail.component.ts - 'toasts' are discussed later in the course.Some debugging is good and part of the learning process. However, while returning to this course (I completed week 2 previously), I started back over for review and was unable to complete Week 2 - Buttons.Update the material and I'd be happy to attempt it a third time.

use very old version of nativescript

I would not recommend this course until NativeScript has solved those bugs for iOS as well as Android. I had many errors while starting the emulators of iOS or android. It crashes when it's trying to compile and sometimes files are missing after you have build. The course itself was not detailed enough when it comes to preparing your workspace for your NativeScript project!

The third of 5 courses in the specialization. The 5 courses are 5 small shining gems: all extraordinarily well structured, up to date and to the point. The whole series is a complete overhaul of the material from an earlier specialization. The material has been updated and restructured. Nativescript is new in the series, and very well explained. I enjoyed seeing things come live on my phone. (I have one suggestion: It would have been nice to learn how to handle long lists. Very few restaurants come with only 4 item on the menu).
