Cycling with Training Wheels by Paul Hamilton

Learning a new skill can be fun and challenging. At the same time you get a sense of excitement by exploring something new, combined with a sense of frustration at not knowing what you’re doing. It’s like you’re back on training wheels.

But when can you find time to learn something new? Well, maybe over the holiday season.

Let me introduce you. Here are the last three Basix tuts from each Tuts+ site.
