How Do You Watch egghead Videos To Learn?

What are you’re techniques that you use to learn from egghead videos?

Personally:
Watch the video straight though no code no notes just absorb the information
I take some notes from what I can remember
I watch the video again and code a long and fill in any note gaps
I try to recall the information later

egghead also put together a guide for watching egghead videos here:

I’ve always watched through a fair amount of a video, even if it’s extra in comparison to a specific thing I’m learning from the video.

IE say I wanna know how Nader did Auth with Amplify. Instead of just skipping straight to auth, I’ll watch (usually with a speed adjustment) up to exactly what I need. I do this so I don’t lose out on context.

I think with EH it’s even easier, because everything is already created in super quickly digestible chunks :slight_smile:

I have recently been watching random videos while i’m on the treadmill

About Node or something I do not understand at all, but it’s nice to watch it and learn more from the instructor than the code itself.

Also, It’s a good way to make friends, when they see you are watching some strange stuff on your iPad

I like the videos with the little Professor Squirrel

I follow the suggestions in that howtoegghead article if I want to quickly gain the vocabulary for a new subject.

If I am taking in depth notes, I follow @taylor’s method show in this lesson:
