    Hi Evan, i don't avoid nesting entirely, but the danger is that you have a lot of specificity variance which makes it difficult to quickly understand how styles are being applied and overridden. This is documented in Harry Robert's CSS Guidelines:

    Hey Kyle, This is valuable feedback. Thanks for sharing it! I think you're right that I need to add more information to the website. I wasn't totally sure what questions people would have, but i'm going to be updating the FAQ section as I hear them. To answer some of your questions here:

    1. The course is complete.
    2. When you purchase the course you have access to everything.
    3. I based prices primarily off of how much value I think the course provides, but I also took into account what other companies are doing. Udacity charges $200+/mo for some of their programs. D3 workshops in my area run upwards of 2k per head for 1-2 days of instruction.

    Thanks again for your feedback!

    Great feedback, appreciate you taking the time to share!

    I'll probably take another run at the marketing video and put clips of the course in it.

    Hi Gilbert! I offer a lesson on the website, were you hoping for more of them? If students get stuck they are able to contact me.

    Thanks for your feedback and suggestions!

    Thanks for the feedback! There are indeed great free resources out there. One in particular I recommend to people is Scott Murrays book:

    I spent a decent amount of time thinking about the pricing. Comparing it to resources like Udacity's courses, the pricing made sense to me. Appreciate your perspective though!

  • Posted to Responsive Resume Template, in reply to Tierney Cyren , Aug 13, 2014

    thanks for the feedback! It's built with plain old html, css and a little bit of jquery. I actually used the responsive resume template as the base for the homepage as well. Feel free to check out the source, or if you have specific questions just let me know!
