► I Don't Want To Be Your Fucking Hero! ◄

Don't get me wrong here... I really wanna help you guys in ways you can't even imagine.

My point here is to address that... Some people are putting too much expectations on me.

In this video I'll tell you about why I don't want to be your fucking hero and why you should never forget who is in control of yourself, which is you.

Learn Programming By...Doing?

I tell you guys that the best way to learn something is by doing, right? For me, it doesn't matter how many books you read per day, how many times you get in front of your computer watching online courses... Unless you start practicing your knowledge, it will serve you nothing.

However, there are some people who disagree. In today's video, I received an email from a reader telling me that she was trying to learn by doing, but it was totally worthless.

She was wasting time and wasn't learning anything.

So... What should she do? How could she learn that learning by doing is the best way?
