While Udacity is not the best named app of the century, it is a fantastic learning experience for young adults interested in jump starting vocational training in the computer industry.
Udacity is a mostly-free on-line university featuring high quality classes in computer-based learning. Each class is taught by industry experts from Facebook, Google and other high-quality, well known, web services. It currently services over 3 million students to date!
Udacity offers in-depth classes in Computer Science and multiple programming languages. It even offers classes in some really cool 007-type stuff – like applied cryptography! Classes are easy to access and are taught on a great learning curve. I personally look forward to studying a bit each day, at my own pace! This is a great app for young adults, or anyone looking to start a career, brush-up or learn more about many different elements in computer science and programming.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
