Most people don’t learn to program and design for the web by reading a book. Real learning takes place when you start experimenting with code in the browser and using design concepts in a website. In our opinion, the best way to learn is by doing. Code School opens the door to a new way of learning by combining video, coding in the browser, and gamification to make learning a new technology fun!
What is it?
Code School is an online learning platform that teaches a variety of programming and web design skills. Courses range from beginner to advanced levels and you get to earn rewards and badges as you learn. Our courses use screencasts and interactive exercises to guide you to better code. Each course has at least five levels. Each level begins with a 10-15 minute screencast, followed by a series of code challenges you must solve to make it to the...

Coursmos is the world's first micro-learning platform.
Coursmos is a new experience in learning and education. We're building the world's first dedicated micro learning platform so you can get the knowledge you need or share the knowledge you have, anywhere you want, anytime.
Micro-learning is not just shorter courses. At Coursmos, we're leading the way in defining what micro learning means and developing it to achieve its maximum potential for you.

We're introducing a completely new educational experience that works for you where you're at, for where you want to be, for where you're going and all places and things in between. Welcome to Micro Learning.
Cloud computing is changing how people interact with information and knowledge, how developers build applications, and how companies organize and collect data both on and offline. Today, a developer with a great idea has access to the same infrastructure as a Fortune 500 company, and is capable of creating, deploying, and selling a solution that will rival global technology companies.
Although Amazon was the distinct pioneer in this area (and continues to innovate and expand), many other companies have entered the cloud computing frontier, such as Microsoft, Google, and Rackspace. What we see today is the birth of the next chapter in IT, where boundless technological resources are available on-demand to whomever needs them.
How do you learn to use Cloud Computing?
That's a tough one!
