Weird Indian accent: 'Hello mu friend'
I am so sorry, I don't deny your expertise and knowledge but I just can not listen to your accent.

hash-table384412dI cannot do video tutorials, it is too difficult for me to sit and listen.
I have to either read from a book or blog and follow along, or the best way for me to learn, is find something I want/need to build and just dive in.
I will review the language semantics through a written tutorial or summarized document to get the syntax down. Then start as complex of a project I can think of, looking up functions in the docs as I go along and getting used to the semantics.
Most of the time I have to delete/refactor the code or start from scratch after every 1-2 days as my knowledge grows. But within 3-4 days I can somewhat write what I want regardless of the technical complexity. I just keep Googling what I don't know as I go along. I think after having a solid foundation in the underlying principles of programming which are language agnostic (except going to something completely different like functional) is the best way for me to learn.
I never retain info from video tutorials

xonya510812dI made some programming video tutorials (not in English). Initially I wasn't sure that people would appreciate them, because I don't consider myself a great speaker. I tried just because a friend told me I was good at explaining things.
What really surprised me is how different are the comments about my voice: «Your voice is so relaxing, I love it», «You are talking too fast», «You are boring». LOL. Under the same video! I learned this things are too subjective.
karma937211dI want coarses in gruntlike heavy metal man 😂
I wonder if I just took the content of Indian tutorials and put my honeyed British accent on them would they be better received?
