This course is a bit harder to understand but that's what you would expect. Codeschool won't babysit you for too long, which is great. Most of the stuff in this course is not relevant to most devs if you're not building a map within your app but follow it anyway, it teaches you more about syntax and just, well, you know, writing code. Great stuff.
