Outdated course set up environment


Badge +1
Hello, I am taking the "
[h4]HTML, CSS, and Javascript for Web Developers" Course.[/h4]

I am only about 3 videos in and I am having significant issues with environment set-up because
the displays of all required softwares are outdated. Github is not responding the same way
for me as it did for the teacher - Not really sure where to go from here.

Specifically, GitHub did not automatically create a 'gh-pages' branch, I created it manually within
the repository, but cannot have the command prompt find it. It suggests there is no such branch.
I had to take slightly different steps as well to create the repository than what the teacher did. This is upsetting because
I was really looking forward to the course.

Aditionally, how can I contact support? They seem to reduce any ability to do so to zero?

Hi @Misterbg3,
I understand your point. The course may not be a newly created one, so the version of the introduced tools/software may be a bit old. Have you been able to get help in the discussion forums of the course? Are there active Mentors in the course?

You can contact the Help Center using the Help Center link located on the top right corner of the screen. But I do not think they can help you in such cases.

I know that the Instructor has created a Facebook page for learners. You may want to take a look at this, too.
