If you’ve found yourself in a career rut, the best choice may just be to start from scratch and learn to code — no matter how many years of job experience you may have.

There’s so much new and evolving technology out there, and not enough people to run it. Plus, it’s never been more affordable to learn the skills needed to land a job. In fact, you can get a lifetime membership to SitePoint Premium Courses and learn to code on your own time for less than $50. This massive library of e-books, training, and tutorials will keep you up to speed on the newest topics in design, UX, web dev, and much more.

A subscription to SitePoint will give you 24/7 access to more than 80 e-books, 70 courses, and 300 tutorials. And because you get unlimited downloads and your membership lasts a lifetime, you’ll always be able to take advantage of the new content that’s added on a monthly basis.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll learn with SitePoint:

  • Key coding frameworks and libraries like jQuery, Node, Angular, Typescript, Laravel, and more

  • Techniques like Google Maps API and manipulating HTML5 video with Javascript

  • Work essentials like Git, WordPress, and project management strategies

  • Coding languages such as CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Ruby, PHP, and other industry standards

When you complete each premium course, you’ll take away more than just new skills and increased confidence — you’ll get a certificate of completion that will look mighty swell on your LinkedIn profile, or featured on your CV.

The original price of a lifetime SitePoint membership was $450, and it’s been reduced to $49.99 for Mashable shoppers. But if you become a SitePoint member now, you can take advantage of a last minute price drop that brings the final cost down to just $35.99 for a very limited time (so don’t hesitate).
