Discussion on: When you're learning new things in tech, do you use written stuff or videos more often? Why?

There's a few different learning styles that work best for me. I usually start with reading about something because that's the way that I learn the best. But, failing that, I watch tutorials.

What really makes me understand something is actually doing it, so regardless of where I'm getting the information, I won't learn anything tech related until I actually do the thing that I'm trying to learn. Tech is about the only field that I'm a kinetic learner in, it's very strange. Everything else I've studied, I've learned more by reading.
