    Hi, I'm new to Appbuilder and I have been trying to follow the your Interactive tutorial.

    I would like to point out that the tutorial is very hard to follow, not that the lesson is hard but the instruction is very confusing and sometime down right misleading. And to make matter worse if you get stuck on one part of the lesson, you can't move on to the next. 

    Have any of you actually try out the tutorial yourself? 

    Hopefully someone will actually take sometime to look into it and make a better tutorial for the new comer. 

     

    Thanks.

    John.

    Hello John,

    Thank you so much for taking a moment to share your feedback. I, myself, have gone through the tutorials but perhaps as more experienced with the Telerik Platform tools and services, there are details I am missing.

    I was, therefore, wondering if you can share more specific details about the instructions you found misleading. Do you think the steps to all tutorials are confusing or to a few? Also, are you going through the  Hybrid or the Native development tutorials? Having more specific information will allow me to take a closer look at the instructions and discuss within the team how we can improve them.

    Also, you can find the completed versions of the tutorials available in github. I hope you'll find them useful.

    Regards,

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.

    thanks for getting back to this post, what i find it hard for me to follow is some of the steps is confusing, like sometime i just don't know which location to put in the code.

    Example : I get stuck in Build a photo album in Lesson 1, step 4/7, action C. which ask me to replace the code and when i do just that nothing works.

    Suggestion: If you could put in a whole sample code for that step (maybe as a downloadable text file), at the end of each step, it will be much easy to see what went wrong. This will prevent me from getting stuck in a step and can not move on to the next.

     

    thanks.

    Thanks for clarification! I forwarded your feedback to the team behind the tutorials and they will consider improvements in the instruction steps.

    I also had a hard time following the tutorial.  It would be nice to have full code after each step to compare to in case one gets stuck.  The quick 15 minute tutorial turned into an hour plus because I couldn't get it to work like it said it should.
