  1. I am just start programing.I want to learn php.

  2. You forgot to mention They have great courses there and some are free, infact currently all there courses are now 10 $…..can you beat that ?

  3. For a Python learning the is the best step after codecademy Python fundamentals course. The greatest thing on CheckiO is “challenges”, where several solutions compete for better or even best algorithm.

    And I can recomend too. Codewars not only about Python – you will find there several programming languages like Ruby, Java, JavaScript/CoffeeScript, Clojure and even Haskell)

    I’m just a hobbie programmer, but I think the most effective way is solving real-world oriented tasks) Both of sites is about this way of solving/learning. When you crossed a hard way of solving, as a prize you can access to a really rich library of interesting solutions of just solved task – not only clear/right solutions, but smarter or even non-understandable creative wtf-solutions too)

    So, good luck, guys!)

    P.S. And sorry for my terrible English 🙂
