[reply to Pinkie's question, via duplicated "spam-label" post] In regards to your question about cost (399-4 wks). It is for those who want or need live instruction and guidance. It is not for everyone. You'll get 8-10 hours of live instructions + unique text and video content - in a format where you can ask questions and request specific information for clarity and understanding. I teach these same concepts in a summer camp workshop and I can tell you they accelerate understanding and results. It is my hope to also form a community where people will support each other and offer specific pin-point solutions to members. So it's not necessarily for someone who merely wants to dabble, rather has the expectations to do something "real" down the road at some point.
All of this same stuff is available free on youTube and even on the Construct site for free, so if a student doesn't need the one-on-one live help, its not for them. Also, if you are addressing the type of person complaining that the cost of Construct being too expensive, then the workshops are definitely not for them.
Anyone is free to disagree, but I can only speak from my own experience - there is a lot of great support in the community, and although I see some "attitude" periodically, the Construct community seems to be more helpful than most (i.e. stack overflow re: attitude). There have been times when I needed a simple solution to a problem - and I did not get it from the community, and I could not find it on YouTube, plus add to this there are so many "different" ways to code a solution - there are cases when a live knowledgable person with an on-target and super-efficient answer is worth it.
