Please use this topic to ask any question about the course (even if you think they are stupid, we really love stupid questions). Note that this is the beginners topic, so if you have already followed the course and your question/intervention is more advanced, please use the non-beginner discussion topic.
Questions with lots of likes will be asked live by John. If you see a question you’d really like to be answered, click on the heart under it to like it. Don’t post duplicate questions if possible. They will be removed by the moderators (don’t be mad if this happens to you, it’s nothing personal). If your question is not answered during the course, it will be answered on this topic after the lesson.
This topic will be very crowded, so please refrain from getting too much off track (create another topic for this) and please like the post of someone who replied to you instead of replying with thank you.
- Remember that the book has a chapter containing details on each lesson
