I’ve decided that it’s time to finally start penning some of those conversations down, so that they might help others as well.
A couple of notes about this series:
1.) Most of those other previously mentioned resources aren’t free, and I personally think that this information should be.
2.) I feel like these courses are missing the mark. That’s not to say that they aren’t teaching the right things – but the manner in which they teach is isn’t hitting home. The biggest complaint I hear about the courses offered on sites like Treehouse is that while they introduce the skills and give problems at the end – they only teach you how to solve one problem rather than teaching how to actually apply the skills that you learn to other things. As a result, the learner doesn’t develop the ability to apply these skills to real-world situations. I am aiming to change that.
3.) Everybody learns in different ways. Just because one method of learning works for somebody, does not mean that it will work for the next person. So – by me putting an alternate resource out there, hopefully this will be the resource that finally explains the concepts in a way that make sense to the learner.
For each of the tutorials that I write, I will do my best to explain what the concepts are, how to use the concepts, and then give some real-life scenarios in which you might use those concepts.
Each tutorial will build off of material that was covered in previous lessons, and so it is advisable to start at the beginning and work your way through.
As you are going through these tutorials, if you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch, and I will do my very best to answer as best as I can. So, with that introduction, I’m ready to dive right in! Good luck! I hope that these articles become a valuable resource for you.
