We’re going to do things differently in this video.

I want to walk you through a few questions. For each question, I want you to pause the video and write down your answer to the question on a piece of paper. Do it before you listen to the next question.

If you answer the questions, you will be able to figure out which framework you should learn, and how to start learning it.
