Looking for the free coding education for aussies that lost jobs due to corona deal from a few days ago

Hi It was some sort of coding education for Aussies that have lost work due to the current situation, at that time I wasn't eligible but today was stood down.

Does anyone remember what it was? Or for anyone that has applied can you post your experience. Would be really grateful. Cheers.

    Do you have any preference for the technology set or language?

    PluralSight is very good resource and it is totally free for this month. Give it a try

      Thank you i'll check it out. I was specifically looking for this offer but this looks like a good resource.

    Corona deal?

    What was it? Half price special? Pricing error? Free delivery? Please be precise….

      It was an offer for a coding bootcamp type thing im assuming that's otherwise paid for people that have lost their job.I think someone that was affiliated posted it. It was on a case-by-case basis, you had to email them. I can't for the life of me find it.

      Neither. it was a guy im assuming who is affiliated, offering access to an otherwise paid program for people that have lost their job. Im assuming it was a coding bootcamp type thing could be wrong.

    Was it Free 3 Month Premium Membership @ Skillshare. I posted it but couldn't get the 3 months to work so removed as unobtainable. You can still get 2 months free however.

      It wasn't. It was an independent thing like a coding bootcamp or something similar. Thanks for the resource though looks good.

    Whare are you looking to do exactly?

    Coding isn't exactly generic; most jobs will require very specific knowledge. For example - The competitive programming course isn't going to be useful at all, just by looking at the summary of the content that they will have. You can basically just create your own course that would be many times better by structuring the courses to what you want to do. Basically I wouldn't recommend that bootcamp thing; in fact that would probably get you ready to do basic statistics/programming courses at university at best; and we all know how useful those are…..

    Content isn't hard to find, but most of it will be the manuals or software documentation (literally the python documentation). You won't get someone walking you through most of the advanced content which is required to be job ready. Look to create something, that's what is going to get your portfolio looking nice and get yourself on the way to being hired.
