Discussion on: Why video tutorials should NOT replace reading documentation

As some of these fine developers told me, the official documentation should always be your basis. It's more like the manual of the language you’re learning. Think of it like you have a new equipment and there's a manual on how to operate it. But there are times that the official documentation is too difficult to understand especially if you're new to the language. That's the time you look for other resources for further explanation. This is when video tutorials, blogs, etc. are very useful. But then you should go back to the official documentation.
