Personally I’m a big fan of anything that makes learning new skills easier and resources more accessible, so you can imagine my delight when I recently discovered a marketplace called Skillshare which does exactly that.
For those of you unfamiliar with Skillshare, it’s a global learning community where you can learn real-world skills from real people who collectively can teach you about anything from programming to design to fashion and film.
Skillshare classes may not be free but they are very reasonably priced and when you consider the cost vs the value of the skills that you will be taught, it’s actually a real bargain. Although I would recommend checking out all of the classes available on Skillshare, below is a round up of 10 related to design and development that you certainly don’t want to miss out on:
