This is my favorite course yet. The topic is increasingly relevant and soon to be essential knowledge for most front end developers. And a great topic is just the first thing the course gets right. Each screencast is professionally produced, informative yet not excessive, and builds incrementally. Alternating lectures with exercises is a proven learning technique that absolutely works. Despite an already awkwardly long and glowing review, I feel compelled to point out that these courses are technically outstanding! They sport an in-browser code editor (with syntax highlighting) that can compile and check your work in real-time. Oh, and it has a polished theme. Code School, you need to know: I want to have all your code babies. Is it a little embarrassing to be publicly admitting this in my review? I mean, yes. It is. But I'm just being honest. Honest feedback - that's what you wanted, right? We can work this out. Call me.


Best course yet in terms of the exercises UX and I've taken them all. I really liked the render tab so I could see how the code I wrote affected the site.


Lots of great info here. Clearing up some of the confusion I had about various parts of mobile design. Thanks again guys!


I have been studying, learning and implementing mobile and responsive techniques over the past year. I loved this course as it teaches sound principles for creating sites. You'll learn some specific techniques, but more importantly you'll learn the 'why' behind the approach.
