4 quizzes, each taking ~20 minutes to complete
multiple practice quizzes, each taking ~5 minutes to complete

Prerequisites

This course is designed to build on top of the material delivered in the previous two courses in this specialisation. Therefore, we recommend that if you find this course too technically challenging that you first complete the previous courses before re-commencing this one. Specifically, we expect you to be able to code basic HTML, CSS and Javascript before you take this course.

The course started a little bit slow for me, but I was familiar with Meteor already. After the first week I learned a lot and many things started to make sense to me. The quizzes are not too difficult if you pay enough attention to the lectures and I definitely recommend building the application alongside the instructor, so that when you are required to build the final assignment you don't have any trouble thinking on what to do next to meet the requirements with your app.

Jason Michael Cherry completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Outstanding class, and a very good introduction to using Meteor.js. Examples are through and help to teach how to use Meteor.js. Final project is a bit challenging, but there's enough provided up to that point that a little creative thinking can get it done.
