I am trying to figure out the best way to learn new things on Stack Exchange, and ultimately design a study plan to help myself and others. To this end, I'd like to hear how others use these websites to achieve this end.
I am a programmer, and thus naturally inclined to use Stack Overflow.
Here is what I currently do:
- I have a list of interested tags
- I try to read questions from each tag, as much as I can (sort of random)
- If a question that I can answer catches my eye, which happens rarely, I give it a shot
- I occasionally ask questions regarding problems I confront at work or encounter while reading technical books/articles or watching video lectures
I am not sure if this is an effective way to achieve my goal of learning new things on this site, and I want to refine it.
