Every single line of code I learned on GitHub. I remember I found some good Rails tutorial just before rails 6 go out. It had a link to YouTube. First video after was :"Why rails is dead". Just an hour later, rails 6 go out with amazing stuff. So I decided to look for some videos on sites that teach you, not on youtube. Too much hate, and we're all different. This is the best post I read... For a long time!

P.S. Learn by code, not by video. My opinion. And how it happen on YT? People like me, who do not like to work with JS, want to get more followers, but they are not smart to talk how something is good, so let's talk how something's is bad (even if its not).

Glad you enjoyed this little "rant"! ๐Ÿ˜‚ That was a good thing to do, ditching YouTube. After all, some youtubers choose to make content that makes them the most money (the click-baity titles that everyone hates but still clicks on) instead of what they are truly passionate about. There's the underrated youtubers though, that make AWESOME content. They keep it nice and objective, while still having their opinions.

That's a good piece of advice there.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, by the way. I appreciate it! ๐Ÿ˜

I like quality discussions. This is a rare place for that, other sites are FB-like(not use), or STACK-like (quality content, but no discussions ). I started this account only for that, to talk and cooperate on tech content. Wish u all the best, keep writing good stuff!
