Is this video tutorial outdated?

This youtuber makes tutorials for installing Discourse on your own server and plugins. I was wondering if this video tutorial is relevant and can be 100% followed as of today (video made December 7, 2017)

I don’t think anything’s changed dramatically for installs since December 2017 so you should be fine, but why not use our official guide here: discourse/ at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub

Also If you’re running a small site I believe the one-click Digital Ocean install locks you into a more expensive droplet (2GB RAM) than setting up a droplet following the instructions in our guide (using a 1GB droplet).

I’m using the DigitalOcean server with 4GB, 80 GB SSD DISK, 4TB Transfer, and i think 2 vCPUs. I heard it’s more than enough. But I appreciate the official guide but I’m a visual learner.
