Learning Design and Coding – Free and Paid Resources
Books cost a lot and they should because authors put a lot of research and work into them. For many (independent / free lance) designers and developers it’s a big investment for something that does not pay itself back right away (like a design resource ;-). Let alone real life courses.
Free Learning Resources
YouTube is a great free source for tips and tricks and for learning new skills but it’s not easy to find in depth learning material. So here are a few tips for you:
There are a lot of photographers that are teaching these days. But none of them have the combined creativity/photography/photoshop skills that Aaron Nace of Phlearn has. Check out the free in depth tutorials of Phlearn on YouTube
Paid Online Training
On line learning sites like Lynda.com cost $25 per month and vtc.com (Virtual Training Company) cost $30 per month and give you step by step, in depth, up to date learning material. You will learn fast with great results but not all of us have that budget. I was a frequent user of vtc.com for over 2 years, I’m a big fan.
Deals on eBooks
Deals on eBooks are always welcome. Mighty Deals always has a couple for a low price. Check these out:
