This is yet another lesson that is broken. Even after getting the solution I can’t find where the instructions are used on the solution code. Someone really needs to go through this lesson and fix it.


yep, not fixed yet :frowning:


This lesson looks to be only partially finished. How can we expect to learn this with the only instructions being ‘implement the code’?

i complete example of rushed content. does anyone even revise this?

I cannot solve this problem…
" 1. Write the code for the method we use to load the user in memory"

Does anyone give me a useful reference to solve this?


This Lesson is broken, the solution and the given code are exactly same.

It looks like this might be a mistake on their end, the solution code is the same as the initial code.

To get passed this lesson you can view solution, then click use solution code. And though the code doesn’t change, it lets you pass the tasks.
