After a few first classes, the quality improved and was very good. I highly recommend this course, and appreciate the level of detail and context provided in the instructor's explanations. All the principles that I struggled to understand before were presented and explain in a way the I am not only able to read and use them, but I can master them. With the knowledge from this course I will work on some personal projects and after that I will certainly follow the more advanced courses of steven.

This applies only to the first few videos: the audio was making high noises that hurt when listening. If you are interested, you should know that the audio is terrible at the start of these videos. This class was useful however it is from 2016 so quite outdated, as javascript has evolved and changed quite a lot recently. My only nitpick would be that I wish there were more exercises closer together so that we don't go through two tons of information before being challenged.
