Honestly, pretty solid course. A lot of people were saying this course isn't for beginners but I would strongly disagree. I think the difficulty is FAIR, and really gets your brain thinking logically.

The example given in each video was very helpful in understanding how things work on the internet.
Overall experience was great as it was basically about basics and introduction to web development.

I t is not beginner friendly. It is too fast. I know this is jsut the introduction, but for a beginner who learns it for the first time it is too much. I will not finish this certification even before i begin. Other certifications like W3 School are more user friendly. Please concider the way you are teaching. Espeacially the first course should not be overwhelming from the beginning, since people try it for free and make their decisions based on their experience.

As other reviewers have said, the spoken content does not keep pace with the text on the slides which makes for an unsatisfactory experience. Assignment 2 (CSS) was wrongly coded and it took moderators a few days to look at comments from users and finally correct the scoring algorithm. The main problem with this course is though, by far, the breakneck pace with which the instructor (otherwise lovely in every way) is forced to go through the material, without stopping to explain the logic behind a coding convention or its practical applications. For CSS, not a single concrete example is given and the very first one such is encountered during the assignment ( no wonder the vast majorty of learnerns failed it, according to Coursera). There are far better courses on these topics out there (UMich on this platform, all their courses are great, or the WEB3 Consortium's tutorials which are all very well taught- and free!). Sad to say, but I would not recommend this course to anyone - it needs vast improvements if it is to be of any value for someone who actually wants to learn these topics.

Some lab tests are failing because silly things like the ones from the week2 about css in the page styling process are failing because of the css property ordering suggested in the assignment, in the practice we know css properties order doesnt really matter much if we are not overwritting the property. So please take a look at your test cases and check that.

Extremely comprehensive material and simple teaching style. I was shocked when I received the email from Meta on becoming a Meta certified Software Engineer.
This is a credential that will cause employers to take an extra look when submitting a job application.
I mean, Reach which is being taught in paid bootcamps and courses for several thousands dollars by hundreds of professional developers was created by... Meta!
What is better than learning straight from the source?
Amazing opportunity for all aspiring developers, what more could we wish for?

Before starting this course I had 0 experience on frontend. I think this course is more like a starting point, it gives you all you need in order to continue your studies of this fantastic field.

I liked that it's not boring and deal with an individual on above average level. A lot of concepts were covered and were clear, with advancing in the certificate it will be more clear.

Very good for a beginner... The instructor is very clear and concise. Also, even as one who is a bit experienced, some concepts were better explained here for my understanding.

One of the strong point of this course is the voice of the speaker is so clear, even with the non-native english speaker can understand almost 100 % of the content good job.

Conclusion: I got zero value out of it, but I can see it being somewhat useful for a complete beginner, I just think there are better already existing resources out there for that.
Pros: good for a confused beginner to get an overview of the things he needs to learn to become a junior front-end web developer.
Cons: labs were way too easy, simplistic, rudimentary, laggy, and straight up offered the solutions instead of only providing the things you need to do, and only after to get the possibility to check what you've done. There was also no project, we didn't build anything.
Gave it 2 stars because I appreciated the attempt from Meta, but they need to work harder if they want to make a course / specialization worth more than the paper it's printed on. See you in the next one.

I learn a lot, thanks to Meta and Coursera for the opportunity and the financial aid. I'm looking forward for the next course to learn more about React for my journey to become Front-End Engineer.

Although I have a strong knowledge of front development, I still found some of the concepts in this Introductory course really powerful. The instructor was eloquent and explained everything clearly. My favourite lesson was the accessibility part. There is a lot we take for granted when building a website. I learned that building a website that serves everyone is not only important but necessary.

This course went over all of the basics of HTML/CSS and leaves you without any questions of how websites are constructed and made. Regardless if you have 0 experience with HTML/CSS, you can pick up all of these concepts very easily with the way the instructors introduce and explain everything.
