I think so too.
(I've used the "Level" metaphor to give readers the
feeling that they're progressing from beginner to advanced topics, as they make their
way through UI plugin development.)
I noticed! And I like it :-)
I can certainly dedicate some time to writing such tutorial series.
What would be the best way to start?
with Level 1, I suppose...
One thing I would like is to have something you can do to validate that
you've understood a level before you move on (like the bad guy that you
have to beat to complete levels in video games). It could be something
as straightforward as a "Compilation successful" message, or a "Test
passed" on a unit test, or a screenshot of "here's what you should have
now" - something to let the reader know when they're only a little off
the path, and how to get back onto it.
I think that the wiki or website could be fine - it's just a web page
after all - what's important is the promotion of the series in the right
places, and making it look nice, and like a series of articles rather
than one big wiki page.
Thanks again! It looks great so far.
