Tutorial Purgatory from the Perspective of Tutorial Makers

How to stop reading tutorials and start doing things

There is a point in the learning process where you will realize this:

You have the knowledge you need to start solving the ideas you have in mind.

You don't need to be a JavaScript wizard to build applications. You only need basic knowledge and motivation to solve stumbling blocks.

Having a personal project that you care about is the best motivation to overcome obstacles that you will inevitably encounter.

I am a heavy Podcast listener, and I particularly like certain plots, some of which describe the process from zero to owning an online product. Many times, this person starts with zero knowledge and builds skills correctly when needed. Not long ago, don't learn too much in anticipation, but just do it.

Solve all problems

How do you solve the problems you will encounter? Of course use Google. Google is your best friend. I have been engaged in professional development for 10 years, and I have been using Google and Stack Overflow to answer my questions.

But Google is just a tool, a stupid machine that can match pages with your keywords. Stack Overflow is just a web application, and it will be useless without people who spend a lot of time answering questions.

Behind these sites, there are millions of developers who spend time writing some blog posts or answering Stack Overflow answers.

Last word

I am one of the people who share information on the Internet because I write a tutorial on this blog every day. Since the beginning, I have written more than 300 tutorials. Let me tell you this:You will never stop reading tutorials, Because technology is constantly changing.

10 years from now, what everyone uses today will be considered legacy. It happened before, and it will happen again. Consider jQuery or Angular 1.0 or XHTML.

Likewise, your needs are constantly changing.

What you learn today will become the basis for you to build cooler things tomorrow.

However, don't let learning stop your progress as a manufacturer. The most important skill you can learn is not how to make code do something, butHow to make things with code.

Build something you’re proud of and startNowadays.
