Google Resource for Computer Science Learning

Google has launched a new gateway to help you find computer science resources, programs, scholarships, and other learning opportunities.

You can filter the resources by region and by age group (including 18+, so it’s not just for young students). Although the site doesn’t include every CS resource on the planet, you might discover new opportunities you haven’t heard of before, including ones that aren’t just about computer programming and coding but general technical skills as well.
