How did you find thenewboston?

Amazingly, I still remember.

I was searching for MySQL tutorials in January 2012, and of course Bucky must know Youtube SEO. I found his channel from there, and realized "holy shit this is a gold mine of computer stuff".

I watched every episode of Survive The Wilderness 2, the day they came out.

Any other stories?

My friend gave me php tutorials where alex always used to introduce himself as

hello, this is Alex from and this is a php video tutorial for thenewboston

At first I thought that thenewboston is some place or institution and after completing all 200vids I searched for to get some more in-depth tutorial but found nothing but some later I just typed thenewboston on google and on that day I came know that thenewboston is actually a youtube channel which has lots and lots of tutorial and then I started watching his videos one by one and I still do... :D

when searching for tutorials to learn php back in the summer of 2011, I found several video tuts with ppl that wern't so good at teaching and being funny at the same time until I came across buckys vids. First it was like "oooookkkkkkk...... he atleasts try to explain the code to you" and after about 2 or 3 vids later it was "hey, I'm starting to get the hang of this" and I'm still here since

When I was searching for HTML tutorials on Youtube

Directly from youtube. I think it was because of C++.

It has been a good 3 or 4 years so I don't even remember. But I think it might be YouTube though :ermm:

Someone made a post in a computer science discussion forum my freshman year. They said to check out thenewboston. I googled it, and found my way here. It was all just his videos then. I remember buckysroom too, but I only stuck to the videos then. From then on out I would hit up his tutorials every time I had a class in coding. I hadn't had a programming class in a while; not since last March I think. So it had been a while. When I clicked my NB icon on my toolbar last month, I found myself on a site that was NOT thenewboston. I almost freaked out for a second thinking, "Oh my gosh, what am I going to do without Bucky's tutorials for this class and all my future classes?!" LOL. I did a google search and found the new forum....and now here I am.

I had been doing PHP for just over ten years and got a job for a shop that did Ruby/Rails. I needed a fast way to learn Ruby and found this site. Anything the tutorials covered that was beginner information I just glossed over. My primary goal was to quickly learn what was different about Ruby vs PHP and these tutorials served that purpose well. I recommend this site whenever I get the chance.

I think It was  3 years ago, i wanted to learn java. One of my friends told me that he discovered a great youtube channel for tutorials and sent me a link. Since then, i have recommend thenewboston to over a 20 people and everyone of them was surprised how it's easy and funny to learn from Bucky's videos.

I was looking for porn, I thought java was a type of s&m bondage and found a load of video tutorials by some guy called bucky explaining how to learn it properly, it took me a few months to realise it wasnt porn but by that stage I was too far into it to stop, so a warning to everyone that came here for the same reason I did, java is not very good pornography.
