Rapidweaver Academy - Big Thumbs Up

Having - almost - completed the Lawyer Course in STH’s Academy, I have to say that it’s well worth it. Elsewhere, someone’s pointed out that really Source is just a couple of stacks - Grid and Container - but they’re so deceptively powerful that I really wouldn’t have understood what was possible without working through the examples on the course and then having my steps confirmed (or otherwise - hah!) by the video walkthroughs that follow each part of the course.

Hats off to Stuart, not only for producing Source in the first place, but also for supporting it with such excellent training material. Heartily recommended.



I mentioned that Stacks is really just 2 stacks that you need to understand. It really struck me when I read that there are over 150 stacks in another Framework and this contrasted with how easy Source is to master.

As you correctly mentioned, the Container and Grid are indeed deceptively powerful, andI would add that you can’t really appreciate them until you try to build a layout with them. Controlling height and width and then how positioning (top, centre, bottom, etc.) inside containers is one of web design suggest challenges for a lot of people, and Source is the solution we have been waiting for.

I like Stuart’s approach in creating the STM Academy instead of adding lots of wiz bang effects and PR bomb dropping.


Thanks @rob.beattie. A much appreciated review. Really glad you found it useful.
