Treat your tutorials like recipes

Epiphany: The same process that works best for recipes also works best for following new technology tutorials. Read the whole thing through first to try to understand it rather than jumping in to follow along.

(Unlike with recipes, it’s normally not as big of a deal to stop to install needed requirements in a tech tutorial but even if it doesn’t cause you to burn the roux, it sure as hell can block you from finishing the dish)
