If you are, like me, born in the Seventies, you might remember books. Remember the days when you wanted to learn something and you went to the library or a bookstore? Not anymore, at least not for me. I still buy the occasional book, but only digital ones. The thing with tech books is that after a year or 2 the book is outdated. Well lucky for us the internet is huge and Google (or Bing) is our friend. There are a lot of resources out there and most of them are free. If you want book advice, I really like the “Head first..” series to start with something new. It’s fun and somehow that helps me learning. For reference I think O’Reilly is always a good bet. But I didn’t use any books the past weeks, I used 2 different websites, one free and one paid.
Determine your starting point
What have I learned so far?
To be honest, the theory was already present, but I now had some more explanation and practice with it. Shawn used a comparison table in his course that sums it up nicely.
Now I have finished both courses, I think I’ll move on to more in depth subjects. And my plan is to focus on the top 3 differences in the above comparison. Hopefully I can write a blog on each of them when I’m done.
