What are the best online resources to learn software development

I'm trying to teach myself software development with C#, I'm thinking Treehouse will probably be a good one, but I'm looking for some other opinions, I'm looking for something that includes a few practical tutorial builds :)

    I'm a happy subscriber at Egghead, which mostly focuses around frontend and JavaScript, but their no-bullshit, bite-sized lessons are extremely well designed, there is a lot of free content but the paid content is even better! Some of its content is even created by key open source maintainers such as Dan Abramov of Redux or Andre Staltz of Cycle.js

    Codeacademy is the best place to start. They really hold your hand (which is great for absolute beginners) but after you have some knowledge, I would recommend moving on to something like Code School or a class on Udemy.

    Udemy is great! I've found so many awesome hands-on courses. Never pay full price, you can always find a promo code or some deal they're doing.

    Code School was probably my favorite tool when starting to learn Javascript. I really liked the format - you basically watch a short video where they explain a topic in a very simple manner, do a few challenges to reinforce what you learned, and repeat that process again and again.

    Laracasts doesn't assume that you have any prior experience with PHP. The instructor speaks clearly, works cleanly, and allows errors to happen - just so you can learn how to deal with them when they happen.

    Laracasts is just the best. Videos are engaging and high quality and topics cover the whole spectrum of software development principles.

    I'm a huge fan of Leo and his courses. Leo focuses on project based learning. Super good stuff. I got started with Ruby on Rails thanks to Leo.

    Skillshare Scholarships

    Enabling creators to pursue their creative vision.

    I have learned the basics on c# at skillshare and it is pretty good. The first 2 months are free I think but after that you will have to pay. But I don't think that you will need longer than that :)

    Great platform, most online courses are not free though. But I personally believe their teaching methods are one of the best online: you'll remember what you learn and be able to apply it to real life projets. They also have a very supporting community.

    From what I've seen, Austen and Co are doing a great job getting their students motivated to learn. Did you know that for the most online courses, students don't go past a second lesson? Doesn't matter how much it costs, students lose motivation and go to something easier. At least with Lambda, you'd be able to find a job when you're done , and this way you will have something serious to keep you going when the times get tough.

    Imagine a project, put it on paper, find out what functionalities you need to make it work as you imagined, go to Github and find the projects with similar functionality. Study them, discover how ‘others’ did it, ask questions on Stack Overflow.

    I would recommend to try the personalized learning path based on your CodersRank profile. It's beta at the moment, but can give real value in the long term, based on your up-to-date tech profile
