Anyone have any experience with learning with Udemy?

I currently subscribe to Lynda, but don't use it as much as I should.
I'm thinking of Udemy because of this bundle for $100 - https://deals.cultofmac.com/sales/learn … amp-bundle

What do you think? Worth it?

I've used Lynda several times in the past to learn various software.  It works great.

I've used Udemy once for the Python the Hard Way course.  It was good because there was more than just readings to do with annotated lectures.  Was the course a success?  Eh, on some scale, sure.

Online programming courses were always difficult because they try to cover on the broadest range of topics or the very specific.

Here's my tips:
1. Don't expect to become the "ultimate" developer
2. Start with a project in mind.  Being able to make correlations between what is taught and what will apply to what you want to do makes the lessons much more appealing and valuable.

For what it's worth, if you Like Udemy on Facebook you get 75% off any course.

Authors of most free courses on Udemy have terrible accent which makes information comprehension extremely hard. I prefer thesis statement help website as a cheaper solution.
