I came across an interesting line while I was reading The Geography of Bliss – Search For The Happiest Places In The World. The section was talking about Icelander’s admiration for failure, and it ends with, “We Americans like to think that we, too, embrace failure, and it’s true, up to a point. We love a good failure story as long as it ends with success.”
This post is written for a friend who wants to upgrade web development from a sidetrack to a career.
I’m trying to teach myself figure drawing. Following Proko’s tutorial, this part in particular struck me as the essence of learning:
This is the second part of the Guide to Self-teaching AngularJS Trilogy. If you haven’t gone through the first one, do it now, here. If you already have a demo page that you can show someone (your potential employer), read on. 5 steps as well, but harder on research. Take it one at a time.
This Guide to Self-teaching AngularJS Trilogy is for a friend who wants to learn AngularJS from zero. The question was, “Which tutorial should I follow?”
None of them.
Reading tutorials and watching videos is passive, therefore rather ineffective and less fun. If you’re a strong self-learner, what you need is not tutorial, but a guide to doing research on your own. Here it is.
