Daily Productive Sharing 205 - How to Learn Publicly?

One helpful tip per day:)

(The English version follows)


最好的学习方式是什么?每个人可能都有不同的见解。今天的分享中,作者认为是公开学习,把你的问题公开出来,可以获得大家的帮助,反过来你的问题也许能帮到其他人。在这一过程中,你可能获得行业的顶尖高手的点拨,从而避免很多弯路。比如程序员喜欢在 Github 或者 StackOverflow 上求助,经常会有高人出现指点,也许一个回答就一两句话,但效果惊人。另一方面,这些问题会一直留在这些网页上,有类似问题的程序员很容易就通过搜索找到这些答案,从而大大节省时间。

What is the best way to learn? Everyone may have a different opinion. In today's sharing, the author believes it is public learning, putting your questions out in the open to get help from someone else, and in turn your questions may help others. In the process, you may get help from the top experts in the industry, thus avoiding many detours. For example, programmers like to ask for help on Github or StackOverflow, and often a more experienced person will provide solutions, maybe an answer is just a sentence or two, but effective. On the other hand, these questions stay on the Internet, and other programmers with similar questions can easily find these answers by searching, thus saving a lot of time.

Of course asking questions online isn't the only way to learn publicly, you can also keep a learning journal, make learning videos, and so on. For example, our mailing list is also a public learning approach, so people can see what I've read.

If you find today's sharing helpful, why not share it with your friends?
