Discussion on: How do you prefer to learn? Videos, Books, both?

Really interesting topic.
I am a newbie in web development, most of the time I am learning by following Youtube videos and reading books for basics knowledge. I try to follow people who have good reviews, and most of the times they always advise to have a look by ourselves in the documentation given by the new technology we want to learn, but sometimes simple things are really difficult to understand because they are explained with complexity - which make videos convenient for beginners I will say.
Once we are used to search through the documentation and understand it, it becomes easy and then we can find more valuable resources for learning.
So I will say, start with good videos and then go to the documentation.

I agree, I think videos is a good start. However, is not enough.

Chose your sources carefully!
