This course covers a lot: bower, npm, sass, yeomen, karma, jasmine, grunt and gulp, and some basics of node.js and expess.js. I thought it was a very good survey of workflow tools to organize and automate projects. It's very likely that bigger projects will be using these tools. With that said, the course is mostly readings and labs. The few videos are for summary purposes (2-3 min). The labs are useful for practicing, but sometimes appear to have missing info. You may need to do some troubleshooting... You should have knowledge of HTML/CSS/JS, and also practice working with version-controlled projects so you can understand why these tools are useful. If you have the fundamentals down and want to learn how 'professional' software is built/managed, I think this is a great "glue" course.

This is a very important course, and i glad I found it. But it is not very well structured - particularly the gap between what is taught in the class and the test in the end of each module. It is impossible to complete each model test with the information given in the model.

Very disappointed in Microsoft's attempts to provide content on edX. This course was disorganized and impossible to complete, using the sparse materials provided.
