Lynda.com Upgrading to LinkedIn Learning

Sean's picture

On Thursday, April 1st, Lynda.com will officially be upgraded to LinkedIn Learning! You may recall that this was originally going to happen a couple of years ago, but LinkedIn put the upgrade on hold while they worked out some complications on their end.

2020 has been an incredibly difficult year. I, along with many others, I’m sure, have wanted to just escape and get away from all of the difficulties and tensions more this year than ever before. Books are one of my favorite ways to “escape” because I can open one up and be teleported into another world and give myself a break from the real world. Some of my favorite books are ones that take me to a magical realm with hobbits, wizards, and elves, or take me into the stars and across galaxies. Despite the hardships of this year, we have seen some amazing books published.

This week, Vidcode added new content to the platform, which means there is now even more coding activities and projects you can do to learn Javascript.
