One issue though, in that video... they use 3rd party libraries / DLLs ... which is not too good for me imho. I usually never use 3rd party stuff in order to not be dependant on others.
Well, any dependency you have such as .NET framework DLL's are still a dependency.. you should get over this, I don't think there's a single project I work on that doesn't use 3rd party libs of some sort.
If you try and recreate everything, you'll create unfortunately inferior results (not specifically through lack of ability), that took longer to make.
Like anything, the lesson is 'balance'..
