Any good online learning sites?





Smalfinn
Hi,

I'm currently learning HTML & CSS on codeacademy...

But their lessons are a little dry in detail,

Just wondered if anyone knew of a better place to learn webdesign online?

I recommend the W3C Education group page.

The content is very rich and is being kept updated. I am impressed that they have a lot more resources in there now since the last time I visited earlier this year.
They have both HTML and CSS, as well as JavaScript.
They also have contents on the web in general; whether it's web designing, creating websites that have high standards, or related 'soft skills' like project planning and management etc.

I found code academy to be too finicky and trivial. Takes a long time to build up skills and generally didn't teach what I wanted to learn. I prefer going for books. There's this site which has a nice rundown of a bunch of different educational sites: http://blog.ted.com/2013/01/29/10-places-where-anyone-can-learn-to-code/

Good luck

I have been using both free and paid courses at Udemy, and personally, I love it. It is kind of like edX and Codecademy rolled into one.

It has video lectures, downloadable files (Source Code, Example Apps), Quizzes, Tests, and once you complete a course, you get a certifiable Certificate of Completion (Sure, it's not a diploma, but it's something to feel good about).

They often run some mega sales to get paid courses cheap, and they have all the features you need. An editor that runs on the side of the site so you can follow along with the code, as well as a discussion board (Also along the side of the site) and more.

I highly recommend it.

Udacity has some good web related courses. I would also take a loot at W3schools. For some really good resources and tutorials, you could try to google "best html and css tutorials". Maybe try adding reddit or quora to that query. They usually have good topics on those sites with the best resources.

I've used both Coursera and Edx.org

I don't know much about coding. The above sites offer programming courses, but I don't know if they're advanced enough to suit what you're looking for.

I am trying to learn Python.
I have used the online Codeskulptor learning enviroment.

Also I have used Skulpt.
Skulpt is an entirely in-browser implementation of Python.

hi,
You can also try codecademy.com/

Youtube is full of tutorials and other learning material.

If you want to learn academics than please refer to khanacademy.org. It is amazing site and best of all its free Smile
Da Rossa
Codecademy and youtube are two of the many, many free ways to go.
Paid sites can be good too, such as Lynda.com.

I think for learning everything go to YouTube. There's video on almost every topic there. The key is finding the right one. Luckily for us, YouTube search results like php training, html training, css tutorial etc will provide us with tT e best quality tutorials. You can read user comments and see the likes/views videos get before actually deciding to follow on a tutorial.

Those people, who make tutorial videos have a list of videos that teach you from the basics. In my opinion, those videos get straight down to the point and are better than learning from real life classes. You can also search for specific answers on Google, switch to the videos search result and find a matching result. The online learning experience is really great actually.

Youtube is also a good source for tutorials. Smile

There are lot of good learning sites on internet. Choose what ever you like.
readcode
Well, you can ask for tips on http://stackoverflow.com/
http://www.tutorialspoint.com/ is good for general programming tutorials
https://www.quora.com/ is an excellent place to ask good questions and have friendly, qualified and professional people give you answers.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqszz_OfAFQ&list=PLC1322B5A0180C946 is THE BEST place for free video tutorials
amagard
Digital Inspiration today published a nice list of sites to learn programming for several programming languages.
Insanity
I think a lot of learning HTML comes from viewing source of various websites that you thinka re cool looking and learning on your own like that.
quanmechanix
Why don't you try out http://www.tutorialspoint.com/ They provide almost all of the website scripting and programming languages that you can learn and also are now in demand. It is also a good place to start learning everything there is to know about starting from the basics. Very Happy
slavicadimovska
I've used Coursera
Da Rossa
There are also some competitors to Lynda.com:

tutsplus.com
pluralsight.com
trainsimple.com


All paid, but I think they offer some free courses.

I also suggest udemy.com
lkorba
Definitely Udemy.com is my favourite site for online learning. OK, maybe right after Youtube Wink So many free resources... you just have to spend a bit more time searching.

I also used Coursera. I highly recommend it.
The whole book can be downloaded, the video lectures and all the documentation at:
http://www.pythonlearn.com

I am back in this topic because I found another great place/resource to learn HTML & CSS which was the main concern of the original poster.

There is this course called Learn HTML5 for W3C at edX. Interested people might want to check it out. I think they just completed their first session. They will start their next session on October 5, 2015. There is still around a month left.

You get a free certificate upon completion. For this course, you can also pay $129 to get a verified certificate. Those people who want to only learn can opt-in for the free option. I will probably do the free course option as well. I hope I get down to it and actually complete it.

I tried udacity and Coursera, but I think the best is Coursera The most advantage is that is really free, not like udacity for example. And it's not only for programming, you can learn a lot of things with it.

EDX is a really good MOOC platform too.
deanhills
Best one for me is lynda.com. I'm lucky as I get it free through my place of work.

However, there is plenty in youtube.com. Just type in the topic and there are lists of tutorials that are listed. Very soon you will find an expert on your topic and start checking his collection of tutorials.

Here are some links.
- https://docs.python.org/tutorial/
- http://www.diveinto.org/python3/
- http://stephensugden.com/crash_into_python/
- http://greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/index.html

1. Learn the language, begin with the links above and google.
2. Learn about virtualenv and pip. That will help you when want to build something bigger that requires several and different libraries. It will also make it easy to install your program on other computers.
3. Learn about unit-testing and out-deployment maybe look into tools/libs like tox and pex

Please check at EdX I believe they have great tutorials there and also they will teach you how to use some of the popular web API for you project. I hope this helps.

Wow, I never had heard of that! A joint initiative by Harvard and MIT! Should be good!

Edit: anyone took any courses in there?

selfhtml is very good.

I just took a look at edx. I was hoping to find some good Python instruction, but most of it they have seems to be either too elementary or mixed with a lot of other material. I signed up for a data course which uses Python in a couple of advanced sections, but is mostly about using spreadsheets.

At the moment I have read the material on a movie/actor analysis which supposedly can be done with a spreadsheet but is more appropriate in Python. I got myself very confused trying to read the file (in csv format) and set up dictionaries to answer the question easily.

I may have to either back off and follow the instructor's recommendations for setting up to process the data, or move ahead to the actual computation part and then see if I can go back and set it up from the csv file. In either case, it appears the section is on a high enough level that I will benefit from the exercise.

Put any question to google, something like "python get file permissions" and at least 1 useful SO link will come up.
