You have almost definitely heard about this service, and the fact that almost everybody has certainly says something about it.

Among many other language learning apps, Duolingo is my favorite. It is free. You have a clear idea of what you will be working on, and clear progress measuring is available. Moreover, it is very structured and has high quality instructions. Finally, you have to admit that the Duolingo owl is pretty cute.
Lynda.com is another fantastic online learning platform mostly focused on helping you learn business, software, technology and creative skills. You gain access to top-quality videos taught by recognized industry experts. Recently, Lynda.com became a part of Linkedin, and it now serves more than 10,000 organizations. What is impressive is that it tutorials in five languages! However, you only get a 30 day free trial.
This probably isn't the first time you've heard about Ted, you most definitely have sat through a TedTalk. Well, from those TedTalks, TedED has created over 200,000 short video lessons on just about every topic there is. The shortness of videos makes them perfect for quick learning.
With more perspective than any other calling out there, learning code is located high on most of our lists.
