Hey PH! 👋 Lindsey from thoughtbot here. We're very excited to relaunch our online learning platform, Upcase, as free! Over the fifteen years that thoughtbot’s been around, teaching has been core to our mission. Whether its for each other, our clients, or the community, providing mentorship brings us great joy, elevates folks to new levels in their careers, and leads to better software being created. Everyone wins. Since 2012, one way we’ve shared thoughtbot expertise is through Upcase. With Upcase, thoughtbot has helped thousands of developers level up their skills through workshops, videos, flash cards, and coding exercises. We hope you like it and use it and pass it on to others eager to learn. Also a quick shout out to the many many thoughtbotters who have contributed to Upcase over the years. I’ve included a few of the makers here, but it’s just a sampling of the amazing talent who have contributed. Let us know if you have any questions!
@lindsey3d Cool to see you here! Congrats with the relaunch. 😁

@matsabrahamsen hey there! Thanks!

An experienced team as Thoughbot shared their learnings about programing and more for free, isn't that amazing?

Pros:

Good learning resources for free

Cons:

No cons

I've used Upcase extensively over the years to learn things like TDD and VIM. I can honestly say I don't think I'd have the developer job I have today without it.

Pros:

The best learning resources for junior developers trying to make the jump.

Cons:

Price... but that's not a problem anymore!

Exciting, I know a lot of people that this would be of benefit to! good luck with the launch! 😻
