Here's a SANITIZED list of 530+ free online programming/CS courses (MOOCs) with feedback(i.e. exams/homeworks/assignments) that you can start this month (December 2016)


So, a submission on this sub to a huge list of MOOC courses caught my attention today as I've been trying to learn programming myself. So I look into the comments first to see what courses people were taking, when a comment caught my attention that says: "This is a great resouces but beware, OP ran some of the links through some pay site so that he profits out of traffic and hid this using links...."

So I decided to investigate further, and sure enough. uBlock Origin blocked the first link that I clicked. It turns out, pretty much every link to the course on the post is a link hiding a reference link to a spam site The url itself has reference id and everything. Full link:

I posted this in the comment and reported the post for spamming, thought nothing more of it, and move on. In my goofing off, I ended up installing NVIDIA CodeWorks, and the damn installer turned out to be a download manager for installer to a bunch of stuffs it needed to install. So, I let it run and while it downloads, I thought I'd fire up Overwatch and try to climb out of gold rank, when for some reason, I thought about the MOOC post again.

Hiding a reference link using is not only spamming, but it's also unethical because tracks where clicks come from and the whole practice preys on the innocent who just wanted to learn some programming stuffs.

So I decided to go through the links and sanitized the and removed all the spam links and replace it with direct links to each of the course.

Over the course of cleaning up the links, I found that OP feed all their links through two spam sites that ublock origin blocked:

The first one is the linksynergy site as I've mentioned before.

The second one is through

I hope this sort of shady spamming behavior is not tolerated in this sub, and doesn't happen again. But just in case another post comes up again next month, would someone be so kind as to make a expander plugin for chrome or something to automate this cleanup without exposing the user's location, and clicking on the reference, etc. I didn't want to run this through python in case something bad happens and some dumb protocol got exposed or whatever.

Anyway, here's the full sanitized list. I've left the links bare so you can see this list has not been compromised. And if you'll excuse me, I'm going to run spybot on my system now.

Happy learning. GLHF.
