Just some feedback for tuts+ in general, and perhaps only my experience with the trial and taking the CodeIgniter Essentials course, you need to pay more attention to providing the customer with a better screen experience. The author does a reasonably decent job of explaining, but it’s too fast and at times bursts of code lines plop down and then go away so fast that you can’t even perceive it without stopping the video and trying to back it up to a particular point to catch it.
Secondly, I am familiar with several online training tutorials, most especially Lynda.com, and I would perhaps have a look at how they present these things. Very deliberate and they offer code libraries so that after a lesson you can take a look at the code and compare it to the video content as much as you want.
If the other courses are like this one, I won’t be subscribing. I do remember Jeffrey Way’s CodeIgniter from Scratch Series and that was a very good one. He was very deliberate and he also provided the code libraries, too. Of course that’s quite obsolete. too. The current CodeIgniter Essentials set is also pretty dated and is in need of update.
