Courses FAQ

What is the difference between a workshop and a course?

Workshops are live events where subscribers can participate and ask questions in the chatroom. Replays of these events are available in unedited form until they get edited into our final course format. The final course is broken into sections and lessons and has additional enhancements such as annotations containing useful links.

How long does it take for a course to be released?

Workshops take about one month to be edited and released as a full course.

Can courses be downloaded?

Subscribers can download courses with our Android and iOS apps, which are ideal for mobile and offline learning.

What does v2, v3, etc. mean in a course name?

A higher version (v) denotes a newer version. You may skip the previous versions of the course since they are complete replacements of the original.

Where can I submit my questions about the code in a given course?

The best way to get your questions answered about the code in a given course is to submit an issue in the course repository. A tool to raise code issues associated with specific timestamps in lessons is currently in development!

How often do you update your courses?

A course is updated once there is a fundamental shift in the language or library’s underlying API. You can check our workshop list to see if a new version of a given course is on the schedule. You may also write to us as with suggestions for updates.

Is there a forum to discuss the courses?

We have a Slack channel available to students who enroll in the free online Bootcamp, but currently, we do not host community forums or comments. If you’re experiencing a problem with the course material, we suggest you check out the GitHub repository issues section for the course. If no currently open issues address the one you’re seeing, creating an issue will allow the instructor and other students to help out.
