Use These Three Steps to Boost Your Learning Skills
If you're struggling a bit learning a new skill on your own, coder Cory House shares his three basic steps that help him retain information.
House's steps should come as no surprise to anyone who has done a bunch of independent learning, but they're still good to keep in mind when you're trying to pick up a new skill:
Try it yourself and experiment
Teach someone else
Basically, the idea here is to watch a skilled person work through something, try it for yourself, and then share that knowledge with a friend, on a blog, or wherever else. It's a solid, classic formula, but it works well.
