  2. Anyone know if this is open to people outside USA, and also do you have to buy any other software. Adobe Creative suites and photoshop are mentioned.

    I bought it in the UK just to have a look and see if it's any use to me. No major loss for the equivalent of $7 if it turns out to be somewhat "Meh".
    Already familiar with JScript and somewhat JQuery but more reference materials are seldom a bad investment.

    Seems it's all courses run by Udemy.com. Says lifetime access, so probably all hosted online. Not Kindle/Ebook/PDF etc. as far as I can tell. Will be having a look later this evening (UK time, ~15:00 here just now) and will post back some more details on the format, but of course by then the offer may have ended!!!!! If it's going back to basic "This is a computer" level I'll probably be somewhat disappointed. Most online courses I've picked up or investigated seem to be quite over priced to begin with and have hugely reduced special prices frequently.

    I've done a couple of these already.

    The format depends on the instructor. Most of the time it's a video of the instructor's screen while they explain or demonstrate what they are talking about.

    They also have an app so you can watch/do these lessons on the go, but I haven't tried that yet.

    Most stuff on the store ships worldwide (even physical goods), and 100% confirmed this and other online courses can be bought worldwide. Bundles don't include Adobe or other third-party software, though you can work on your skills and learn HTML, CSS, jQuery and others with no more than a good text editor like Sublime Text and your web browser.

    Also there's a ton more information specific about each part of the courses at the Store:


    Looking forward to your feedback @Arris.

    I signed up and paid $7. Shared the link on FB. This is not something I have every day to work on but I'm still interested to learn.

    Web Design - HTML & CSS For Rookies:
    Dull presentation, seems to just throw in explanations when they realise they are doing something they haven't covered. No real progressive structure to help those who are actually rookies. Often refers to w3schools.com. Several examples look like they were lifted straight out of it. Used it before and a good free resource in comparison to this 'course'. Would have been disappointed to pay £76 for this.

    jQuery Fundamentals Training:
    Mostly pages to read. Not what I would call a course. Course order is mixed up. Does an review of "Scope" lesson before presenting you with the reading material on the subject. Will confuse lots of people. 20% of the way through the 'course' before they mention jQuery. Spent a lot of time on Javascript. I'd have considered that to be a pre-requisite to this course.
    http://www.w3schools.com/jquery/default.asp pretty much does a better and more straight forward introduction to jQuery. A lot of the reading material has tags for formatting that haven't been applied by whatever editor was used to generate the course material resulting in further confusion (e.g. <strong><em>element</em>.getElementsByTagName(<em>tagName</em>)</strong> when the query they want to show is element.getElementsByTagName(TagName)) With the included code and exercises is a better learning aid than the HTML & CSS course.

    Split into too many parts. Probably to make it seem better value.
    Greeted after each 2 minute 'lecture' with "Welcome back everybody, alllllright". Gets very irritating. Just read w3schools.com instead. Covers the majority of things in this course syllabus. Section 7 can save you from doing all the previous sections. It's titled "Review" but is a much more condensed version. Shows how un-necessarily split up all the previous "lectures" were.

    Note: I'll update as I go through the remainder of the courses.
