re: I'm Wes Bos, Ask Me Anything! VIEW POST


Hi Wes. You've said you do a lot of reading of docs when you prepare. I always find reading docs like running through quicksand. I end up skim-reading and not taking anything in. Any tips about going through docs when learning new things? Thanks.


Some docs are really good and others are brutal to go through. I go through them because I'm teaching it - so I kind of do it so you only need the docs for reference.

What I find more helpful is looking at either examples for the project on github, or the test suite from that project.


Thanks for your reply.
I've only been programming properly for a year and about 6 months into my first commercial role - a lot of learning is "on the go". But looking at tests is a good tip. Thanks. :)
