The purpose of my tutorials is not to show you the most optimized way to handle code because in different situations you may have to use different optimization techniques. The purpose of my tutorial series is to show the syntax and how to use it then in turn you decide how to implement it into your own code.

I haven't seen any of your videos so the following is only a general statement about tutorials.

For some such tutorials might be helpful, but the danger with such example/syntax tutorials are, that people will copy the code and will adapt what one teaches them, thus if you show a bad practice, it might end up in their code anyways and blow up at some point. Thus for me it would be important to explain the syntax and then discuss different techniques and show some good practices. Sure it's more time-consuming and one has to plan ahead, but in the long run the viewers will benefit more from it. ;)

I do understand your point and I do teach different programming practices with other tutorial series' This series is just to teach syntax. Later on I'll be showing them how to implement the code to create a platformer. While designing the platformer they will be learning quality methods in order to use their code but thanks for the suggestions. I'm always open to suggestions :)
