Learning a new technology

Here's a small flow I like to use when learning a new technology. I follow these one-by-one, moving from one to the next, skipping those which seem unnecessary.

  1. google: <topic> ELI5
  2. google: <topic> diagram
  3. google: differences between <topic> and <something you already know well>
  4. google/youtube: <topic> introduction
  5. youtube: <topic> tutorial (sort by length, favor videos no longer than 9 min.)
  6. google: <topic> best practices
  7. google: <topic> documentation
  8. Go off and build something super small in said technology. Limit yourself to 1-5 hours.
