re: How I got out of that “Tutorial Purgatory” as a learning developer VIEW POST


This is cool but I can’t see what’s the problem with tutorials here...


Thanks, Fabio. Since I'm a self-taught developer, tutorials provided me the fundamentals I needed to learn. It's the dependency that I have developed along the way made it difficult for me to build or solve problems on my own. I wouldn't know what to do without having a video tutorial on the side. Fixing a bug or an issue isn't always parallel with what I learned from the tutorials. Having done this project liberated me from relying on video tutorials and breakdown a problem into small solvable chunks. :)


Of course tutorials are not made to teach you how to work, but, to teach you how a language, or a framework works.
I read a lot of books and I see video tutorials every day, but it's also true, that I work every day with the code.
The tutorials are useful ... the problem is to watch them without writing code on your own.
