Whether you are into building computing devices, or developing apps, computer programming is an essential part of the job. Keeping up with new trends and patterns in computer programming can be a difficult task.

Fortunately, there are several online resources to help you stay up-to-date with changing patterns in computer programming. Some are available for free, while a few premium services charge a monthly fee.

I’m impressed with the courses that are offered at the premium service — Udacity. Available as an app as well as a Web service, Udacity brings simple, easy-to-follow video lectures on all things related to information technology — from computer science basics to programming in Python language, or developing apps for Android and iOS.

The best part is that these courses are built in association with experts from popular tech companies such as Google, Facebook and AT&T. All you require is a laptop/PC or a smart phone/tablet with a working Internet connection and two to six hours a week and you’ll be on your way to becoming a computer expert.
