TIP: use YouTube to learn quickly

I'm learning lots of Amazon Web Services topics via videos on YouTube.  There's a lot of material, but I can absorb the content faster than people speak.  Also, I often want to go back and listen to what they say a few times.

I use these YouTube keyboard shortcuts ALL the time:

space -- play/pause
f/esc -- enter/leave full screen mode
left/right arrows -- go back/forwards five seconds
</> -- slower/faster

We also have these keys:

up/down arrows -- increase/decrease volume
0-9 -- jump to spot in video, 0=beginning

It's really freeing to learn material 150% or 200% faster using these keyboard shortcuts.  Enjoy!
