As a result, many resources on the subject are daunting to beginners. A high level of detail, while essential for specialists, is a barrier to the less experienced.

The website breaks down information into different levels of organization. A main authorial voice explains concepts plainly with simple code examples. Attached to some of these examples are detail modules that offer a step-by-step explanation of what's happening. Glossary terms – necessary jargon – are scattered throughout, revealing their definitions upon interaction. As the guide progresses, advanced modules explain concepts that go further than the basics. These components are structured to be clearly accessible yet out of the way until desired; this allows the reader to learn at their own pace.
