lynda.com’s New Programming Courses Aim to Accelerate Web Development Skills

lynda.com, an online education company, today announces a new wave of front-end development and programming courses designed to teach members how to quickly and easily develop complex web applications. Web development skills are in high demand among employers, so the new tutorials are especially useful for college grads and those looking to expand their careers or launch new ones in software engineering.

Learn the simple way to build your own complex web application.

CoffeeScript allows front-end developers to write JavaScript more beautifully and efficiently.
