It seems as if Babel and it’s purpose is introduced, and then a large jump in knowledge is made where the user is simply asked to type commands into the terminal without actually knowing what they do. I feel like I’ve gained nothing from this section of the course and was wondering if anyone has felt the same way or if this could be addressed.
I think it is important to understand that this course is meant for beginners, and that consistency is very important in the progression of this course. I have experience with Java but I haven’t programmed in a while, and this course has been tremendously helpful in reintroducing me to programming. This part of the course has not made very much sense to me at all however, and I think it could use a little bit more explaining such that a lay person is the student, which is almost always the case.
