If you're looking to prepare for the future of web development, I think my course does a good job of teaching the technologies involved. This is a great time of year to start looking at the new stack.
If you haven't taken one of my courses before, you might be surprised by the way that I teach. This course walks you through building a website from File->New to publishing the site. The course covers the following topics:
