I started this discussion here, then realized curriculum feedback is probably the best place to keep track of it
I absolutely agree with you. I have been working on the rspec exercises and was really curious how deep the further sections went considering the amount of self learning and help I am seeking from established programmers in the field. Turns out the sections are teaching ( at least initially) very basic concepts which are far far below the knowledge necessary for the rspec problems given before they are taught. This is a very critical flaw in the alpha curriculum which needs to be addressed ASAP.
Additionally, blocks, procs, and classes are all referenced in Assessment -1 before they’re covered in the curriculum (are procs ever covered?).
