New Courses Break Down the Coding Language Barrier for Users Interested in Front-End Development

April 25, 2014 – CARPINTERIA, Calif – 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. One of the recently released courses shows how to teach coding to children, giving them a competitive edge on the next generation’s job market.

New courses include:

Up and Running with AngularJS with Ray Villalobos

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