[off-topic-ish] do you prefer LC-related content as books or video courses?

Hi André,

I previously always favored printed books.

But now I prefer digital materials that are a combination of text (with copiable code!), interactive elements, and supplementary video.
As Richard pointed out LC itself provides "the many learning benefits of direct engagement with interactive media.”

IMO, Video is most appropriate when used to convey visual, spatial and temporal examples. It’s can also provide a bit of a human touch to the instruction, even though it’s utterly mechanical.

So, yeah, I like a combo.

Hope this helps!
