Some Useful Resources
Why Code School?
On the other hand, Code School has videos/screencasts and slides that you can watch and learn along with. This added benefit comes at a cost though. Code School is a paid service. There are about 64 courses offered and the cost is $29/month normally. Not prohibitive by any means. I tried Code School out this weekend during a free trial period and liked what I saw. The videos seem good and the instruction is what I was looking for. Both Code Academy and Code School are comparable. If you are on a budget Code Academy is good enough in my opinion to see if you want to continue learning about the subject matter and not spend any money. However, for a little investment you get a little more with Code School because it is a bit more polished than Code Academy. I knew I wanted to learn about this stuff so the decision for me was easy. I chose Code School. I took advantage of a Black Friday promotion Code School was offering this weekend of $15/month for 6-months which worked out to $89 in total. Not too much so it seemed like a good investment in learning. I have access to both Code Academy and Code School now, so there is no downside either way. I figure 6 months should be enough to take my time to work through the course material at a reasonable pace.
