I’ve been playing with different ways of learning to program like reading books and watching videos.
There’s a huge amount of resources to go and learn and I always felt that videos are the best way for me to learn programming as it is the medium I use to study for my Microsoft exams. That is till I bought the book Beginning C# 6.0 Programming with Visual Studio 2015 by Benjamin Perkins, Jacob Vibe Hammer and Jon D. Reid.
I found it much easier to learn programming from books especially the book mentioned above. My issue is that my mind wonders when watching videos and I noticed that I miss key concepts when watching and following the videos. However, I still use videos to learn programming as it just feels easier to get through the information presented.
Basically what I’m saying here is that I will be working through this book and then come back and blog about my experience using a book to study versus using videos to study.
