I can’t believe how good this introduction course on Web development was. (html, css, javascript) The best part about it was the price, FREE!

I had recently completed the javascript and jquery courses in codeacademy and thought I would try to find some intermediate exercises to take it to the next level. That’s when I came across the Microsoft 70-480 exam and popped open the link to the self-guided training for the course. I didn’t expect much out of free videos from Microsoft but in honesty it felt like I was attending an expensive workshop.

The modules are pretty short. Usually around 20 minutes and nothing over 30. The presenters are some of the best in the field and are celebrities if you follow certain circles.

I had no idea that all apps built for the Microsoft Store will use these simple languages. I’m not necessarily a big MS fanboy, but you can see why they are so successfully in their strategy. They empower the workforce to use their tools and win market dominance because of it.

I had fun.
