I recently found two interesting websites that have some pretty awesome tutorials on them. Completely free.
Fire up the code forge!
[Udacity](http://udacity.com) and [Coursera](https://www.coursera.org/) are even better in my opinion. (As mentioned below, these have more advanced material no doubt. So it does depend on what you are looking for.)
I created CodeAvengers and yes it is targeted at the absolute beginner. I tried to teach my siblings programming using sites like CodeCademy and other great free resources but none of them worked fantastically for beginners. So I had a go at creating my own site in my spare time.
Have only had 100k visits to the site so far but the feedback has been fantastic. CodeCademy is great for people who have already done a bit of programming, but many of my users have commented that my courses are much better for the total beginners.
Udacity and Coursera are fantastic too, different style of course, and in my opinion not so engaging for the high school age kids and 1st year college students that my site is targetting.
These sites seem pretty cool, especially code avengers, although learning java doesn’t seem like it would be much use to me personally but great for many I’m sure. It’d be nice if there was one for actionscript 3.0
There should be more social networks or even social games centered around such topics.
I already knew about Codeyear, but not about any of the other sites mentioned.
The Code Avengers seems like a good introductory course, but I’d like to see more added.
I disagree that codeyear is not friendly to beginners. I’d think it’s very friendly.
Udacity does seem like a very good site, though I fear that I don’t have the math required to do any of the courses!
Coursera seems great, but I don’t want to have to sign up and then pack this onto school.
Some other great sites are cplusplus.com, cprogramming.com, and learncpp.com.
