Do you use Udemy to learn new technologies, programming languages or other skills?

How you do get the most out of your course?
Which courses are you enrolled in?

I bought the following courses:

If you want to learn Docker I can absolutely recommend the Docker Mastery course by Bret Fisher πŸ‘

Fortunately, Udemy has many offerings, so that you can often buy courses for little money πŸ€‘.

I bought several courses, from machine learning to web dev on Udemy. I only completed one (Colt Steele's beginners course on NodeJS). But that is it. The other courses I started and then gave up for some or other reason. I still plan to use these courses one day, but I highly doubt it. I must admit as well, I fell for the 90% off sale. I really thought these courses were a bargain until I realized these courses are always on sale and always 90% off.

I wonder if anyone has ever paid the full price for a course on Udemy πŸ˜‚

I'm pretty sure the "full price" is really a fake price to make you feel like you are getting a really good deal.

I haven't used Udemy in a minute but VueJS 2 - The complete guide was how I started learning Vue seriously back when I needed it.

Highly recommended if you're interested in that framework.

I still prefer reading articles as a way to learn things to be honest but that I liked.

I bought a lot of courses, mostly of them from Max SchwarzmΓΌller (one of the most top teachers on Udemy), his courses are really nice for the price.

Currently I'm trying to finish my stack of incomplete courses haha, I'm not planning to buy more because I found other ways to learn more effective for me (for example, YouTube tutorials, documentations, etc).

Udemy is the perfect website to learn as long as you're mentally ready to spend money to learn.
I have bought more than 150 courses 😁
Some are related to Unity, AI, Rest Apis, and all Sandor Kiss's courses (a bundle offer)

I've found Udemy to be great way to help develop my skills. I've followed several of Mosh Hamedani's courses on C#, plus his Unit testing one. It's definitely helped me in upping my game the past 12 months.

I've bought like 3 courses. I can't be bothered to log in and see which ones exactly. I know I have one on statistics and two or three on machine learning. I even have a free course on how to set up an ecommerse store. :D

So far I've only watched a large chunk of the statistics course. It's something I am planning on finishing when I find time. Eventually I will get my money's worth on all of the courses but I'm a slow learner. I think it's easiest to split it into smaller chunks and spend a certain amount of time per week studying it. Then make sure you also do the projects.

I have a few courses on Udemy.
I just honestly don't think I'll buy another one.

It's not that I didn't learn anything from them, I did. I have one on Vue and I loved it. The issue is mostly that it seems like I can get the same content for the most part using free articles or YouTube. So I just don't see a reason too right now.

Currently working through "MongoDB - The Complete Developer's Guide" for a learning objective at work. Also doing "Ninja Writing: The Four Levels Of Writing Mastery" to improve my writing, as I starting a blog recently (imago.dev). I have "Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer" by the same writing instructor queued up after finishing Ninja Writing.

Overall, I have been enjoying and learning a lot from these courses. I like video lectures, especially when the video player can go at 2x speed.

I first bought a Unity and C# game development master, but I realised that it wasn't for me at that moment. So I asked for a money refund, and bought Colt Steele’s Web Developer Bootcamp. I have to say that I'm enjoying it very much, I'm sure I'll finish it.

I finished up Jordan Hudgen's "Dissecting Ruby on Rails 5" and can highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn Ruby and Rails. (However, there's a Rails 6 version coming soon, so you might want to wait). I think the "Become A Professional Developer" subtitle is too ambitious, but it can take you from a standing start to deploying a useful website using Rails. udemy.com/share/1005bcB0oYeVhaRH4=... (full disclosure: apparently if you use the link, I get money. Wasn't expecting that).
