Trail map

How do I learn Ruby on Rails? Vim? Test-Driven Development? has forced us to formalize our answers to such questions.

A few problems make those questions difficult to answer. Individuals:

  • have different levels of experience
  • have different learning styles
  • change their goals mid-process

A good metaphor for the learning process is a (hiking, biking, or skiing) trail map. Individuals:

  • start in different places
  • want to go to different places
  • change direction mid-journey

Trail map
