Why is Python arguably the single best programming language to learn?
First of all, Python works on a ton of devices. So whether you’re on a Macintosh operating system, Windows, or even if you like to use Linux (Raspberry Pi anyone?) then Python is totally versatile, and totally powerful.
In fact, after programming since I was a tiny kid, I can tell you that Python might just be the SINGLE BEST place to start if you don’t know a single thing about programming or scripting.

Free Online Coding Class # 05 – Learn Responsive Web Development From Scratch!
I remember just a few years ago people used to discuss whether or not responsive websites were mandatory or not.
Well, that time has come and gone!
The number of mobile devices is slowly and surely outpacing the soon-to-be-archaic desktop computers and laptops!
For that reason, responsive web development, and mobile responsive websites are no longer just a cool feature to have – but an absolutely necessary functional requirement.
That’s why you might love to check out this course, so you can discover and master responsive design strategies, and you’ll also learn tools for responsive web design using Twitter Bootstrap 3.0.
The bad news, is that you’ll need to have some level of HTML understanding to get the most out of this course, however, the good news is that HTML is relatively easy to pick up, and the demand for mobile responsive design is something that’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
If you want to learn more about responsive web development using Twitter’s bootstrap 3.0, then enroll here without paying a single red cent.
Free Online Coding Class # 06 – Learn Database Design with MySQL!
MySQL (pronounced my SEQUEL) is one of the most powerful and in demand languages to learn.
Why is it so important? Because BIG DATA rules the planet. Every organization and company, regardless of size, maintains massive quantities of data!
Whether you’re talking about small internet startups, or massive social media networks, you can bet your boots that they utilize some type of database that’s stuffed to the brim with endless quantities of data.
Data drives intelligence, sales, and conversions, and most importantly – data makes the majority of websites function the way that they should.
In this course, you’ll learn about the basic theory of database design and storage, so you can take your SQL understanding to another level and eventually master PHP with MySQL.
Another reason why you might really love this course, is because database administratos are in massive demand, and they make an absolute fortune under the right circumstances!
Another rant that I’m trying not to get carried away with, is DATABASE SECURITY. Hackers and black hats are trying their best to hack every database from massive organizations, so the future and demand of those competent with databases is going to get more and more lucrative and impressive, in my humble opinion.
In any event, I digress, and you can enroll in the free Database Design with MySQL course for free by using this link.
Free Online Coding Class # 07 – Beginner Photoshop to HTML5 and CSS3
This course is all about designing basic websites with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Dreamweaver!
In case you’re wondering what Dreamweaver is, it’s basically one of the coolest webpage builders that I’ve been using since High School. But don’t fret, this isn’t archaic technology, and it’s actually very cool and effective to use if you want to build simple websites.
By the end of the course, you’ll discover how to build a simple website with 5 different pages. (A home page, an about me page, a services page, a portfolio page, and a contact page). You’ll also watch over the instructor’s shoulder and watch as the website goes LIVE from absolute scratch.
So if you’re curious to build simple webpages, landing pages, or even lead capture pages, then you might find this course to be helpful.
After having nearly a decade of experience with Dreamweaver and Photoshop, I can honestly tell you that the skills have served me well and it’s still a great skill to have.
