On NetTuts.com today they've posted a list of tips they think will help you learn a new technology faster. They've broken it up into ten different steps, some which could be done at any time but some have a bit more of an order.
We live in a very exciting time. Never before has education been so cheaply available to the masses (if not free). The medium, itself, has made tectonic shifts from a classroom setting, to blogs, screencasts and complete university classes, as a set of videos and interactive forums. Given these resources, there’s absolutely no excuse not to dive in and learn. However, with such a wealth of resources, filtering through the options can often become overwhelming. In this article, I will outline a simple process to kick-start your education.
Among the items in their list there's things like:
- "Let the Information Flow Begin"
- "Listen and Watch"
- "Feel the Pulse"
- "Meetups and Conferences"
Each tip comes with a bit of description and some links to other resources and tools that can help you along your way.
