I've been did a lot of thinking about the ways people like to learn new technology. I spoke to people that know a lot of information about technology that had helped pave the way for other people and myself to learn. The people that I usually spoke to was Professors at my college also students on campus. Now I am looking for people that are in blogs, forums and communities on the Web to share their learning experiences.
How many people prefer to do a step by step process with or without snap shots learning new technology?
I use "new technology: loosely to mean any computer hardware, software, markup languages, coding, networking, etc. If use the Web, what sites helped you with your experiences? Also, if you used books?
