I didn't have a favorite post, but the things that I noticed are:

Things I liked

  • Very visual examples, including interactive visuals that show movement
  • Touching different learning styles - graphs and intuitive visuals
  • The tutorial had a reference list of terms at the end, so the entire post wouldn't need to be read again. The main information I would look up later was summarized there.
  • One of the posts had a question for a title and it precisely answered that question.

Things I didn't like

  • One post had mixed experience level material that would be frustrating for beginners, but annoying for more experienced people. I would like to focus on just one group at a time.
  • Another post only described the meaning of a word in the context of programming without giving a general definition. I would like to have multiple 'connections' for helping readers remember what they learned. One way is to connect the regular meaning of a word to how it is used in programming.
  • Long posts that focus on too many things

(Now I should think of different types of 'connections' that would help readers of different experiences and learning styles.)
