When embarking on the journey of learning a new technology, I like to establish clear learning goals. What do I want to achieve? Is this for fun or work / job related? How much time do I have to dedicate to this topic? Additionally, I like to gather reliable learning resources such as official documentation, tutorials, and online courses.
One of the more effective ways of learning a new technology, for me personally, is through hands-on practice. Being able to actively engage with the technology by working on practical exercises, coding examples, and projects allows me to experiment, make mistakes, and deepen your my understanding of the technology’s concepts and intricacies.

So I queried ChatGPT and asked it to explain the concept in the simplest and most concise terms. After reading the output I was finally able to start making connections with the provided material.
