re: I really appreciate that your show typos and looking things up in the video. So many tutorials edit that out and I think half the value in watching...

Thank you so much! That's part of the reason that I started making tutorials on YouTube. I use YouTube all the time to learn new topics and it always makes me feel like crap when they type things in perfectly every time and never use reference materials. That is, until I talked to another YouTuber who told me they wrote the entire tutorial 10-15 times before filming to get that effect. That made me think: "if this makes me feel stupid, it must make others feel stupid." And making people feel inferior is a type of gatekeeping IMHO. And, while I don't think other devs on YouTube do that on purpose, I wanted to show what a real project build looks like so I screen capture as I go and edit extremely little on the screen capture. I feel it will make others feel better about looking stuff up. Plusil I don't hesitate to make light of myself because my #1 complaint about working with other developers is that, often, they take themselves way too seriously and I'm much more of a class clown. Thank you so much for your words of encouragment! It makes me even more excited to get to the next part!!
