I made this graph… because I’m feeling a bit pissed on this MVC video course I’m taking. I thought I got it, then I tried to do the exercise. In my mind I think I have a pretty good idea of how to do it (I thought)… then I got roadblocked by so many build error messages by the compiler… not allowed to do this, not allowed to do that, etc… Feeling frustrated, I looked at the instructor’s solution at github. WTH… he went step-by-step from step 1 to step 21 then suddenly a big jump to step who-knows-what. Using techniques in his solution not even mentioned anywhere in the previous 21 videos I just watched.
You know, trying to learn by watching a tutorial video is like trying to learn how to illustrate by “tracing” a drawing. You think you know, but really you don’t.
I’m taking a break to cool down, thus the creation of this graph… then I’ll jump back in again and continue plowing through.
