The lesson does not make a good job of explaining getters/setters, why we use them and what exactly they do. The author says “function” repeatedly when they mean method (this gets me, as a new learner, into a real tizz) and the code presented in the “Hint” section is different to the code presented in the video solution. The Meal Maker project then asks you to code a bunch of getters and setters that have no functionality within the code.
I’ve seen a member of Codeacademy staff in another thread saying they’ll look into this and maybe revamp the lesson/project. That was in March '19. Can we get this fixed?
I’m really enjoying learning with Codeacademy so far but this lesson and exercise has really stood out because it’s so poorly explained/executed.
