Here is some advice from Joe Eames from the Angular Plus Show, Episode 075: Keeping Your Career Current:
- conferences & talks show you the lay of the land, they don’t teach you how to do things, only what is possible
- retention: you forget a lot, so passively watching a video is almost a waste of time
- make it interactive: take notes - you can even delete them later, but engaging with the material will increase your retention rate
- pause, try things out (e.g., use Stackblitz)
- better than following along: come up with an idea and do that (don’t wait until the end of the video/course); this is like assigning yourself homework
- consistency matters: be realistic, a lot of things take time
- heuristics: are you able to use this at your job? If not, do you have a side project where you can use it? If neither is true, and you’re not trying to switch your job, think about if it’s worth learning
