  1. Learn to slow the YT, use a pause, and shut up girls! Good quick tutorial. BTW you should know the database before cloning it messieur Leboueuf 🙂

  2. This video was way too fast. The speaker was also speaking way too fast. Tutorials are meant for helping people understand the process so they can learn. Cannot learn from speed. It kinda becomes a slight insult to learners. Please do better. Please.
