Hi HN, I made this.

For those that are curious, courses are sourced from the big guys like– Edx, Udemy, Lynda.com, Pluralsight, CodeSchool, Codecademy, Treehouse, YouTube Conference talks but I also aggregate resources from some smaller niche providers that go deep on a specific topic like– GoRails, RubyTapas, Frontend Masters, EmberMap and I'm looking to add more.

Resources are categorized using basic natural language processing on tutorial titles and descriptions. For example, since the words “deployment” and “blocks” come up frequently in the 772 Ruby tutorials they are made available as topic filters. The categorization system is definitely a work in progress but I think it is helpful for those new to a specific technology.

I'm actively working on adding new resources and providers so if you have any content suggestions let me know in the comments. Of course, any general feedback is welcome too!


Good job and a great tool! Thank you for sharing! :)


Glad you like it! The dev part is fun. Sharing on the other hand.. always the hard part!


I just released mine last week.... always nerve-wracking, but probably gets better with each new product release! :)

Just have to get it out there and keep mentioning it!

Part 2: getting people to understand it and see how it can be of value to them.


Broke the back button on MobileSafari. Makes for a bad first impression.


Thanks for the feedback. Definitely see how that would be a bad first impression. I haven’t been able to reproduce the issue yet. Can you elaborate on what happened when you attempted to press the back button? Thanks!


Nevermind. I found the bug with the “browse subjects” button. Will fix soon. Thanks again for letting me know.
