I am a training god

I’ve been teaching others how to develop LAMP and web apps for over 5 years.

It’s in my job description.

And with the engineering turnover every company experiences, training is a constant state of being for guys like me.

So, I always thought that getting access to pre-packaged education courses would a God send. Well, it is!

Here are some of the best FREE online courses for developers:
