Maybe 20 dollars a month for months and months is a lot, but from what I saw when I looked, you can cancel at any time. So you could enroll, watch a ton of tutorials for a month, and then cancel. You might get a lot for your 20 dollars if you did that.

Also: Do you like the projects they show? If they are up your alley, it might be useful to do. If not, then it would certainly be a waste.

While I do agree that a person could theoretically learn just about anything for free on the internet through blogs and YouTubes, searching things out takes time, and once you find things you have to take more time reading or watching to see if they really explain things completely, and there are lots of things that you might not even know to search for but would find in a website like the one you posted about.

There's an advantage to having something comprehensive all in one place. If you are curious and can afford the 20 dollars for a month, why not try it?
Thanks for speaking for the other side, Rachel. I myself am "research" driven. I like looking for things, and I am also retired and have the time to look all over the wonderous internet to find things.

I need to remember that not everyone enjoys doing that, and maybe they just don't have the time to do it.
