    Free online university units from prestigious universities :p

    https://www.edx.org/courses
    Free Online Courses from Berkeley, MIT, and Harvard - Certificate Earned on Completion

    https://www.coursera.org/courses
    Free Online Courses 119 courses from Stanford, Princeton, Johns Hopkins etc

    These aren't proper credentials but there are a lot of programming courses, so if you are self-taught and want some sort of certificate behind it this may or not be handy.

    I'm doing one just for interest sake, and I wish I knew about this before I started university to get some basic knowledge/experience on the course prior to enrolling and on how to study/write/research at university standards.

    Enjoy, GL

    oh wow. I paid 30k for a year long 40hours a week programming course. No degree just a cert.. I highly recommend anyone who just wants the knowledge over the piece of paper to check that out. Save yourself however many years of your life and $$$.
