re: How to escape from Tutorial Hell and never come back VIEW POST


I'm definitely in the school of build it. Love to look at other people's code then try and replicate it in a different way, and then hack it to do something else, then realise I could have done it another way entirely. But hands on is the way to go, better to pick up and play with it (while searching Google like crazy) then be led by the hand.


Yeah. Many people say "Just work on your own", but reading someone's else code teaches you to do things in a way you could not even dream.

And teaches you how 'real' developers do things.


It also helps passively introduce you to things like factories and design patterns because you see them in action and have to intuit the implementation rather than just magically decide you need to know about these things because you stumbled across a tutorial or article.
