There are free courses all over the place online. I've not seen any special "magic" between the paid and free versions. Which works for you is all that matters. For some people, they need to actually attend a class to get over humps in the transfer of ideas.
How do I say this nicely, .... these courses won't make you a master of anything. These are BEGINNING COURSES in different languages. Hardly anyone would use these 11 languages. If you learn Ruby, there is little need to know Python or Perl. These languages fill similar places in the world. I've yet to find any reason to know C# or Javascript and I do webapp development. Php is taught throughout India and China. Do you really want to compete with people who can live well on 15% of the same pay? I find GoLang to be interesting, but mainly for massively parallel workloads.
Git isn't a language, but you need to know the tool.

What you need is really determined by how you learn, whether your personally and life will let you keep with something like learning a new language long enough to actually learn it?

MIT https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/intro-programming/ and Georgia Tech https://www.edx.org/school/gtx have free online courses in Python and other languages from well-known professors that anyone in the world (except Iran/NK?) can take. Have a plan for your learning. Have a schedule and keep it. Watching all the videos doesn't make you into a software guru. Doing the work in any first course might be sufficient for many people, but if you want to become a master in 1 language, plan on spending at least 5 yrs and 5,000-10,000 hours coding. There are about 2,000 work-hours in a year.

Plan to spend about 10-12 hrs a week learning any computer language. 3 days of 4 hrs ea, or 5 days of 2 hrs each. Schedule the time. Get a committed "hall pass" from your husband/wife/kids, so you will be successful. Work through whatever course and do all the exercises, even the "extra credit ones."
Also, whatever your first language might be, I'd suggest python, plan to only to python for at least 6 months or 500 hrs, so you get to the intermediate-beginner level before moving onto any other language.
For a second language, C is probably the best choice. Why? Because almost every OS and every other language is written in C. Python was written in C. Linux, MS-Windows are written in C. C is low enough level that you'll learn how computers _really_ work, unlike the script/bytecode languages (python, ruby, perl, javascript, java, and probably 100 more). But C isn't assembly code either. Do at least 500 hrs of C before moving on.

Of course, if you have a paid job doing javascript - learn that. Whatever pays the bills gets priority.

HTML and CSS aren't coding. They are page layout languages. Sorry if you disagree.

There are good things about coding. Your job can always be inside where it is warm or not too hot. After a few years "working for the man", you might be able to branch out into a little software consultancy, if you can get 15 clients to keep you busy. Do it right and you can work from anywhere in the world with a laptop and internet connection, solving real problems for clients.

Nobody will use learn all the languages in the package, so the $1.05/course isn't really true. https://www.edx.org/ has thousands of courses, for free.
And if you don't find that you love coding after doing 1 language, that's fine. Don't beat yourself up about it, but the knowledge you've gained will help you to keep all the VCR clocks set. Wink

Just start with the free JavaScript course on Codecademy.com. That's how I started years ago and I'm a full-fledged web developer now (I did more in addition to that, of course). These StackSocial courses are fine but in my opinion nothing beats learning with an in-browser code editor and compiler like Codecademy has. If you like that and want to learn more, there are plenty of courses online, including from StackSocial. I would read reviews first though-- different instructors can be of different quality.

Out of curiosity. After completing the purchase it seems to allow an option for bonus classes like Google Go, Java, Python...
Are they all redeemable or only one? My guess is only one, which one would be best to go with this main course? I already got Python course through another website.

I've contemplated learning code so I would have the ability to build quality applications (web & mobile). I have basic knowledge of HTML and the ability to copy and paste CSS but no coding experience beyond that.

Has anyone used this course? Would it be beneficial for a beginner such as myself? Would I be better off finding a more structured course?

Thanks in advance.

I always wonder about these online access only courses sold at such low prices. Lifetime access, they claim - whose lifetime? Are these sites just getting all the money they can and then disappearing at some point? How can they do this so cheap? Can we download everything so we still have access to it should they go under? I just don't get the point otherwise.

Yeah, I mentioned that. The problem is defining whose lifetime - yours or the company's?

Unless you can download the materials, you are dependent upon the company still existing when you need a refresher, a reference to something previously covered, or even next month before you've finished going through the courses. "Lifetime access" means nothing when the company goes under (or, more cynically, deliberately folds only to pop up under a new name later with the same materials).

I don't have this, and I've been a coder all of my life, but try out The Net Ninja first. Best one on YT I've found to pick up a new skill.
