    You can elect to take the free versions of each module individually. You just have to hunt for the module title and then sign up for that, and then ignore the offers to sign up for the paid version.

    You still get a certificate if you pass, though it's not one that's verified against your identity like the paid ones are

    I've done a couple of modules of the Data Science one so far but I don't think I'll bother with the rest. The lecturers managed to wind me up somehow; it's hard to explain why but I didn't enjoy the courses.

    Can anyone recommend a course on Java programming, not for a beginner but not super-advanced either, if that's not too specific?

    Preferably a UK based course as well...

    They have an ipad app that you can download the courses to (if your subscription is at a certain level).

    Sitepoint is pretty good for front end development stuff, videos and all Sitepoint books to download, about 70 for a year, but around this time of year (Black Friday and Christmas) they do deals. Just renewed for 30 for the year.

    Also, Pocket Lint Pay What You Want is worth keeping an eye on. Just picked up a development bundle and JavaScript bundle on there for around 10 each

    Check out John Purcell at https://www.caveofprogramming.com/

    The Java course is (last I looked) free on youtube. Early few episodes have not so good sound, but still fine.

    I'm not convinced you'll get more out of an expensive proper course.

    Someone just pointed out to me that Code School are having a 'free weekend'.
    Anyone tried?

    'a Pluralsight company' under their logo, having a subscription there should cover it anyway.
