The new boston is a great site for video tuts


One of these days I really need to check out some of these tutorials.

I have heard, repeatedly, from people that are very good programmers, that these tutorials teach some extremely bad practices.


The tutorials are not bad, but as far as i've seen ( i'm not a very good programmer Posted Image ) the guy that makes the video does not have any kind of experience(except some websites). You can read on his "about" page http://thenewboston.org/about.php that he just reads book and the makes the video about them. Since he is teaching a lot of different subjects with no "real world" experience he does not have any good habit to teach. In my opinion tutorials are useful whenever you forget something and you want to give a simple look on how to implement something particular or after reading a book, if you missed something.

Beyond that i've seen some tutorials,vlogs and shows and he seems funny ;P ( indiechatter is better though)

p.s. excuse my english
