I think Evvy mentioned skillshare, but I am not sure if that is in person or online?

Here are some additional free online resources people might find helpful in no particular order. I haven't actually had a chance to try all of them yet so would love to hear what people's experiences with them have been.
1. Learn Code the Hard Way (http://learncodetheha...) - started by the the same person who wrote Learn Python the Hard Way - Zed Shaw. It offers free online books on Python, Ruby, C, SQL, Regex, and there's even a CLI Crash Course.
3. iTunes U - I absolutely can't stand iTunes as a program, but there are a LOT of free lectures and courses available on iTunes U such as:
Introduction to Computer Science and Programming from MIT:
iPad and iPhone App Development from Stanford:
There are also free lectures/courses from Harvard, UC Berkeley, Caltech and many other schools on there.
4. Some of the universities in iTunes U also offer free courses/lectures/etc on their own websites.
MIT OpenCourseWare - http://ocw.mit.edu/in...
Open Yale Courses - http://oyc.yale.edu/...
webcast.berkeley - http://webcast.berkel...
Harvard Open Courses for Free - http://www.extension....
5. Tuts+ Network - it's a network of tutorial sites founded by a company called Envato. Each site specializes on a different topic such as Photoshop (http://psd.tutsplus.c..., web development (http://net.tutsplus.c..., WordPress (http://wp.tutsplus.co..., After Effects (http://ae.tutsplus.co..., web design (http://webdesign.tuts..., and mobile development (http://mobile.tutsplu....
Low Cost Resources:
1. Treehouse (https://teamtreehouse...) - started by the Think Vitamin folks, it offers online courses on web design, web development and iOS. The price plans vary and can be viewed here: https://teamtreehouse...
3. http://www.udemy.com/... - similar to Learnable, you can take courses as well as create a course on Udemy. There are courses on a bunch of different topics including Zed Shaw's Learn Python the Hard Way. Prices vary depending on the course and there are even some free courses on there.
4. http://www.codeschool... - they have courses on Rails, CSS, jQuery, Backbone.js and other topics. You can either pay per course or pay $25/month to gain access to all their courses and some other members-only perks.
5. Tuts+ Premium - premium content from the Tuts+ folks including courses, tutorials and ebooks. You can choose to pay monthly for $19/month or $180/year (so $15/month).

Low cost/free is for me:
Stack Overflow. http://stackoverflow.... == It is super. I've lost count of the number of times I've been stumped and found answers or at least hints in the right direction there.
http://www.hackthissi... == " free, safe and legal training ground for hackers to test and expand their hacking skills" articles etc to expand knowledge
http://code.google.co... == variety of coding lessons, but I think Google Code University is already listed above?
http://www.5min.com/C... == product reviews and tutorials and a DIY section
