Review : Web tooling and automation course on Udacity
Also, I was able to go through the courses faster than the posted times in most of the case: it’s easy to squeeze in a few videos and an exercise when you have a bit of spare time.
The course covers the following subjects :
- Advanced editor features: The best plugins and tools to make Sublime Text a great editor for the web. It’s as good as Visual Studio once properly setup for a fraction of the system resources, and a lot faster. I’m sold!
- Setting up live editing in the browser: It’s not something I had considered doing before since most of my projects require a session and some form of authentication, but it’s interesting to avoid copy-pasting modifications from Firebug or the Chrome developer tools while working on a complex layout.
The only problem is that the downloadable examples start with the solution to the first exercise instead of the scaffolding to fill in. It’s only annoying for the first lesson since all the exercise build on each other, so you won’t miss much.
