Online Training: Which Sites Offer the Most
# December 30, 2012 at 8:58 pm
With so many online training sites it’s easy for me to be divided on which one I should join. I know that the web offers tons of free info anyway, but I am at a point where I want to kick my learning and skill sets up a notch.
As a Web Developer & Graphic Designer what are some of the best sites available to help improve my skills? I’ve looked into Lynda.com (Looks extensive and most promising), Tuts+, Codecademy, Treehouse, Digital-Tutors (For Graphics) and others. They’re all great sites, but I get bogged down by just how much info there is to cover from all of them.
Is there anyone out there that can offer some experience with these sites and maybe point me in a direction that will help to propel me to the next level?

I’ve been using Tuts+ for just weeks now and I can assure you it’s a really great learning place. I’m not gonna make paragraphs about why I suggest it to you but you can see that by the quality of free tutorials and courses they give at their Tuts+ Network. And I find it one of the cheapest sites out there.# December 31, 2012 at 1:28 pm
For video training courses I prefer Lynda.com. But you don’t need to stick to just one. Get Lynda for a couple of months, which should be enough time to do several of their courses. Then cancel your account there and take a month at Treehouse, then a month at Code School, then a month at Tuts+, then reactivate your account at Lynda for another month and so on and so fort.
There are also several free channels at YouTube such as this:
Codecademy is good for intro courses and it is free, so you should try that also.
