Here's what caught my eye and allowed me to stumble upon this compendium of knowledge:

Learn to Code with Harvard’s Intro to Computer Science Course And Other Free Tech Classes.
Professor Malan has become something of a hot shot at Harvard. His mission—to make computer science more accessible and far less daunting. He’s done this in part by generously making several of his courses available free online to non-Harvard students.

Languages include C, PHP, and JavaScript plus SQL, CSS, and HTML. Problem sets inspired by real-world domains of biology, cryptography, finance, forensics, and gaming. Designed for concentrators and non-concentrators alike, with or without prior programming experience.
... Malan offers the following [free] courses for those who want to pursue programming or web design further:


And the Geek Shall Inherit the Earth - TED Talk

I know it can be hard to motivate yourself to learn new stuff when you can't be sure you'll ever apply it and especially when you could be watching cat videos instead. So with this in mind i would love it if we could make a TBC Study Group where users could incentivise each other to use their spare time to learn together. I find having someone to share with helps greatly when trying something new and gives people a reason to implement and improve their learned skills.

Feel free to post your interests below and hopefully you'll find other users that will want to share in your experience.

Peace Out!
Jonny!
