Learn to build web applications with Ajax in this course by working through the provided exercise files. Both starting files and solution files are provided for each video. By opening the starting file in your code editor, you can follow along with the video and produce the same result that I do on screen.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files for this course, you can download them to your desktop. The exercise files folder contains a directory for each chapter in this course that uses files, starting with chapter two. Some folders for each chapter contain the files for the specified video. So 02_02 contains the files for chapter two video two, et cetera. Within each folder, the start folder contains the files you should use to work through the tasks in the video. The finish folder contains the same files with all of the tasks in the video completed.
If you get stuck, or you just can't get a step to work, the finish files can be a great way to check your work or to see the finished project in action. Just remember that if you want to run the finish files for any chapter in your browser, you first need to go into the code and insert your personal API key in order for the AJAX query to work. If you're viewing this course on a mobile device, or a set top device, or if your membership doesn't provide access to exercise files, that's okay. I encourage you to still follow along as we go through the course.
