I’ve just finished (except for one tiny issue that I’ve posted about here that I need help with) the Learn Redux path (and really, really enjoyed it, thanks so much for making it), and the final project was really tough. Particularly, some of the ways to deal with returned JSON objects and add the data to state really stumped me, and I was a bit surprised to find that the hints were really unhelpful (basically just rewording the step, rather than giving advice for how to achieve what was necessary), particularly as the specific issue wasn’t something that was really covered in the course.
After a couple of days of tinkering with it I’ve managed to get it working, which in a sense is very satisfying and might be the goal of not doing too much hand-holding, but in another sense was a bit disheartening when I was doing really well with the stuff that the course was actually teaching.
For courses like this where there isn’t a walkthrough available when you start getting to the ‘headbutting the screen’ phase, would it be possible to provide solution code (even downloadable) to help when users get stuck? I’ve found that I’ve learned a lot from comparing my code to the Walkthroughs in other courses - often it’s only one silly thing, sometimes I’ve thought myself into a corner, but in both instances it’s been really helpful to compare and understand why my ‘solution’ wasn’t working.
