Discussion on: Learning from dev courses...or from side projects?

What works for me best is to combine both. Learn by doing at first, and then a course (or reading the documentation) on that subject to get a better understanding and fill the gaps.

actually these days I also code so that on one side the documentation and on the other side the code ( + the localhost somewhere :) )

yes, I wanted to share that the course did not triggered much of my critical thinking...once I got a problem to solve, it was easier to relate to it in the course or documentation.

Previously I would start with the course and except all will make sense...
