Course typos and mistakes

Using my existing google account to register on this forum produced an error. I had to create a new account and complete the details manually to successful register. Hope the feedback helps…

That works. Thanks, Ivan!

@theTOE @ivan Hi Ivan, I am having a similar issue with the Harvard video in the sense when I hit the youtube play button the course menu takes up 1/3 of the screen so I am not getting full screen of the video on my ipad. I tried maximizing the screen within the youtube video to no avail. Is there a way to minimize the course menu or pop out the youtube video on a webpage? If anyone else is reading this and knows the fix, let me know. For now I will just go straight to youtube.

I came here to point this out too. I haven’t made it any further in the course yet but i think it would be nice to know exactly which book we will need.


#46

On the Harvard lecture, in the left hand bar, Harvard is spelled wrong.


#47

On the page “Course support - How to reach us”, the link to the toshitimes blog is wrong.

The written text is correct, but the underlying link is wrong.


#48

The link is in “Introduction by Filip” at the very top of the page (above the video): “Link to my Youtube-channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyZyNVYEN-54HPYkVVHnRTA

There is an error in the quiz for “Inheritance & Visibility”. The answer for question #3 is incorrect. The correct answer should be: “Internal” limits a functions visibility to the contract and all contracts that inherit from it (ie. 3rd option).

However the answer is currently set as the 1st option: “Internal” limits a functions visibility to the contract and it’s parents.

I found another error in the quiz for “Payable Functions & Modifiers”. Again it is for question #3. And the correct answer should be the 2nd option (not the 1st as it currently is).

Let me just make sure I understood it correctly. From the video, the _ (underscore) in a modifier is used to tell the EVM to continue execution of the function, not abort execution. Is that correct? If so the answer should be option #2 instead of #1.


#51

“and will fill in” sounds better.


#52

Yes, right you are…

Thank you @doon! Updated :slight_smile:

Reading assignment - HTML:

“might be the first time you ever see code.” should be “might be the first time you have ever seen code.”.

@clicksady Make sure you click complete and continue after the lesson so you can mark your progress. It says 0% in the picture and honestly marking up the progress will make sure you know where you left off. Just a tip. :smiley:

Discussion instead of dicsussion… Typo in the link


:wink:


#58

I’m not sure if a function really is a type of value. Maybe someone can explain…


#59

Another quiz error. I wonder if some of those answers we never set and just default to option #1?

This is in the Common Pitfalls, Tips & Tricks, question 3. Answer is option #1 currently, but from what I gathered the correct answer should be #2 (“We don’t know how much gas that transaction will consume, which can lead to unplanned function behaviour.”)

Also there is a typo on the last word of the sentence, which reads: “Why shouldn’t we perform loops in solidity without a fixed number of interactions?” Instead, “interactions” should be replaces with “iterations”, correct?

A typo in Optional: Introduction to Computer Science - MIT Lecture:

This is a wonderful lecture talking about computer science and cimputation. Although this lecture if optional I highly encourage you to watch it to get an overview of the field before we get our hands dirty.

I think there is a very small typo in the Assignment hint - lists (use only after you tried on your own) section.
In the first sentence i think you want to say “lists” NOT “links”, right ??
If you’ve spend hours trying to figure out links in HTML…

Cheers!!
