Using code samples when learning new programming languages, frameworks and libraries is a great way that speeds up the learning process. I usually start with running a simple code sample and then proceed with more sophisticated ones. Each code sample I run I try to change a bit, and verify my understanding by comparing the output with the one I expected to get. Doing so together with reading the explanations contributes to my understanding of the new topic. Side by side with executing the code samples I read the explanations. It can be either a textbook I buy or the main documentation website (of the programming language, framework or the library I learn). Usually, the explanations I find in the main documentation website are more accurate. I hope this tip will assist you in your endless continuous process of learning new programming languages, frameworks, and libraries.
