PRACTICE - The memory bridge

A lot of times, while learning, information consumption isn't enough. The way the brain is wired, whatever you learn stays in the short term memory.

So when you watch a tutorial/read a book, it's seems you totally get what is being explained but give yourself 1 min max... Poof.... Everything is gone.
This is because you have to convert the information from the short term memory to the long term memory and the gap between the two memories is PRACTICE.

Practicing what you just learnt would strengthens the information you took in. The more you practice, the more it sticks.
This is a hack a lot of senior dev use and that's why they pick up project based learning when they want to learn a new technology.
