I didn’t think you actually did sit there hitting the button over and over. Maybe you didn’t see the smiley.
It has also been completely free of charge for that time as well. Had I paid for the course, I’d expect to not see stubs, but as it is completely free, I am grateful that the site exists at all. It’s not good to go on to a forum and complain about how “frustrating” something you don’t pay for is. The alternative is to sign up to Udemy, Treehouse and all of those paywall education sites.
“Google-fu”. Great! You may have learned more by searching, which is precisely what FCC encourages you to do, but I’d suggest a more privacy-centred search engine, such as qwant, searx, startpage or duckduckgo. You can also visit Stackexchange, but take note of the age of posts.
I suppose I did get ahead a bit with pull requests. They are part of Github, and how people to safely suggest changes to a ‘branch’, a version of files.
Assume you made some files and stored them on Github. Another coder can look at you files and suggest changes to them. All of your files are on a ‘master’ branch. The other coder can create a new, temporary branch to clone your file. It’s like copying a file and saving it with a new name. The other coder alters the cloned file on the temporary branch, and can request that you pull them into your original master branch. You read the changes made to the file, and if you like them, you accept the pull request. The cloned file now replaces your original in the master branch.
