For me, learning through videos is slow. I can speed read and quickly browse through a subject with books. But I can't really do that with a video. When I'm learning something, I do it by crossing over to multiple sources (Google, Wikipedia, more books,...) which again is very hard to do. Right now I'm comfortable with API docs, so I learn new technicals things there. The books I'm reading is more about the craft part of Software Engineering (Clean Code, Clean Coder, Clean Architecture, The Pragmatic Programmer, Design It, The Art of Unix Programming,...) and the human part than the technical part. But I like Podcasts.
