New guy here hoping for a few reviews from those of you that have finished The Lodge training?
I would say I’m average when it comes to HTML5/CSS3/Photoshop and looking to take my skills to the next level.

The Lodge is not a training site _per se_.
It’s a series of videos by @ChrisCoyier explaining the process, workflows and design decisions regarding redesigning (so far) a couple of websites.
Yes, there is **a lot** of useful information in there but (IMO) it’s not aimed at teaching you basics..at least I don’t think that is it’s primary focus.
By all means, I encourage you to subscribe and take a look but be aware of the above going in.June 26, 2013 at 9:26 am #140499lKeithStoneMember
Yeah, maybe I shouldn’t have labeled it as “training”. I do know the basics plus more, so I don’t believe it should be to hard for me to follow.
I’m more of a hands on learner and I like to see things built from beginning to end. I have tried quite a few training sites and feel like the majority of them teach you sections, but don’t put it all together. I’ve honestly learned more from @ChrisCoyier ‘s screencasts – his explanations and how he delivers his material, is just easy for me to comprehend.
I plan on signing up for the Lodge here soon. More reviews and advice are welcomed.

I am considering The Lodge, myself. I’m currently subscribed to Learnable.com. I like it in many ways, but I also find it lacking in others. I tried a couple of the free lessons on codeschool and really liked the instant feedback on whether the code I entered was correct or not (for that part of the lesson).
Can anyone tell me what’s worthwhile about The Lodge? Is it just a peek into the mind of Chris Coyier (as Paulie_D indicated above)? Is it something a person can learn from and acquire skill(s)? Chris seems to be saying so with his latest article, “Brand New Course in The Lodge: Learning jQuery From Scratch”.
