I'm told that learning how to design software is just as important to learn as any specific language. So I'll be taking a system design class using Python and JavaScript this fall on Coursera. It's my first Coursera class so I'm excited to see what the user experience is like.
Introduction to Systematic Program Design - Part 1 is a free online class taught by Gregor Kiczales of The University of British Columbia

Simple hack of IMDB's unofficial API. Followed a Treehouse tutorial to learn the basics of AJAX. I'll be building my own API hack soon.
