As mentioned earlier actually executing the code while knowing what a function does or which data types are which from notes. This method seems to give me a much better understanding. It seems to be more time-consuming, however not by much. Only about 2 weeks extra of note-taking.
This whole experience is an experiment, which good coders experiment, experiment, experiment. Fail fast and don’t be afraid too. This can be applied to any aspect of life.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-155635758-163-5d084feeca340' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=155635758&post_id=163&origin=trilamanila.com&obj_id=155635758-163-5d084feeca340' data-name='like-post-frame-155635758-163-5d084feeca340'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
