The lynda.com story: Lynda shares how it started

Take a seat in the Brooks Institute auditorium with the Santa Barbara chapter of AIGA and enjoy watching Bruce Heavin and Lynda Weinman as they present the history of lynda.com to an audience for the first time. The lynda.com co-founders share stories of how their careers, relationship, and company started and evolved, and how their vision and high standards have brought together a team insistent on excellence. This is an engaging, fascinating inside look into the heart and soul of a recognized leader in software training.

We’ll be posting a few segments of that night’s recordings here on the blog, starting with Lynda sharing some early memories and educational experiences. We invite you to view the entire lynda.com story on lynda.com.

In this video, Lynda opens her heart and shares her earliest recollections: Her childhood, how she discovered an alternative path to education and put herself through school, and how she developed a work ethic that shaped her personal direction and ultimately, the direction of lynda.com.

Learn it from the experts.
