'interactive' examples

Antoine Denis 1 month ago • updated by Alexander Shvets 4 weeks ago 1

Hi,

I think you should avoid the word 'interactive' when you speak about your examples.

In fact, we just have to go through them like a slider. Maybe a 'step by step example' is more appropriate.

I was expecting more interaction and I was a bit disappointed.

Anyway, I won't ask for a refund because I appreciate your website/work, thanks for that.

Hi Antoine!

Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it! Yeah, coming with proper naming was pretty darn hard. Eventually, I ended up with the name "live examples" which suppose to indicate that these are not static before-after examples. To my ear, it also doesn't imply that you suppose to write the code like at they do at codeacademy or similar courses. However, de-facto, I guess people start to expect that more and more and I should adjust to that.


Anyway, here are a few words on my future plans for the course. Now that I'm finally done with the book on design patterns, I planned to spend most of 2019 on creating the second edition of the course, improving it in several key areas, such as:


+ an increased variety of examples, especially in the code smells section;
+ self-check questionnaires at the end of each topic;
+ non-linear progression;
+ support for new programming languages;
+ and maybe even some real refactoring exercise, although it may end up too damn hard to properly implement.

All existing customers will get a free upgrade once I finish it. With that said, I'd appreciate any piece of feedback. If you have more—shoot it :) (btw, I already commented on your other ticket)
