Do complete programming tutorials exist?

All I see is "beginners" or "mid" tutorials where not all is taught; if you check that language's API you can see stuff they don't teach.

I don't believe for a second no one has managed to just pick the API and put it in video format, so where are all of those complete programming tutorials?

        You don't "need" the documentation in 8 hour video form

          Ahh thanks anon I don't know, I suppose you know better than me about what I need and why I need that video, thanks!

            Why do you think you need an 8 hour video explaining a language?

    You can't fit everything into one video because of how exhaustive a language's API is. The thing is usecases vary, you're not going to be using 90% of it at all times, so there is really no point learning it in something like a tutorial. Indeed it is simply best to refer to the documentation when you need it.

    To use a shitty analogy, what you're asking for is basically akin to learning a language by reading the dictionary in its entirety.

      There must be a compilation of videos with everything there about c# come on.

      Ahh maybe because it's not your fricking business? I hate when morons try to do everything but answering the fricking question, like your opinion matters.

        It would have to be atleast 100 hours long for something like that to exist, and i doubt it would be useful to most people.

        Seconding this post, i think a dictionary is a pretty good example in this case. There are "words" everyone uses regularly, and more specialty words that you only hear or use very infrequently or for specific use cases. You can still speak a language fluently without knowing every word in the dictionary. Same thing goes for the c# api.

      One reason I was never able to teach myself programming as a kid is because I just kept taking "intro to python" online "courses" and just kept re-learning what a string and what a function was, then trying to run a project I download off of github, and immediately having it fail to compile due to all the dependency issues.
      I think the way programming should be taught goes against the way modern formal education teaches things. Memorizing the entire "dictionary" as would put it is pointless and even if you did it you'd forget 99% of it later on anyways. I'd say the best way to learn is to find a project you want to do, work on it, and learn everything you have to learn to do it

        OP if you look at the other replies, you'll realize that is the best advice you'll get from this thread

        [...]
        [...]
        I still want a reference about all the things the language has to offer, I've found myself many times making a thing in certain way which would have been different if I knew that part of the language.
        I learn better that way, otherwise I would have picked the documentation and wouldn't have made this thread.

          I already know about that, but it still doesn't answer what I asked. Some simple things like delegates aren't in many programming tutorials for example, that kind of thing is usually on separated videos.

          Mike Shah has my favourite series but that's for C++

          Finally a fricking answer, thank you anon, in fine with c++ too.

    are you asking for an audiobook of the documentation?

    • 2 months ago

      No, a video, or compilation of videos or a series; most of them only cover the basics and few of them get to intermediate level, I was wondering if there was someone out there that decided to do tutorials about everything in an API, c# in this case. I don't like their documentation that much.

      It would have to be atleast 100 hours long for something like that to exist, and i doubt it would be useful to most people.

      Following your analogy, there are multiple ways of consulting a dictionary today, even you have those videos describing what each word is.

    It's expected of you to know the ropes by the end of the course and find the specific topics you need/ find interesting yourself

          You’re a fricking moron if you can’t learn how to read docs and apply shit it’s unironically over for you. A four year education at top flight American universities don’t even come close to applying every class of an api.

          Tldr; have a nice day

          Keep bumping my thread homosexual.

          I'm talking about the documentation. It's there. There is no way people are just doing videos for certain parts of the documentation and ignoring the others.

          There must be at least one series of videos, even if it isn't good.

            It is unironically a good tool for leaning and asking questions, because unlike this fricking board, it tries to answer to what is asked.

    The purpose of a programming tutorial is to teach the basics of a language. If you know the basics, you are capable of reading the documentation to figure out any function in the standard library that you need.

    beyond what you call "mid" there is either the language's full official specification (about 600 pages pdf for C99), a book handholding you through the sourcecode and implementation of a "killer app" (usually coded AND described by the same makers of the language itself), or a guide for doing some specific kinds of things with that language (as in: "image processing with vala").
