What is very apparent as a software developer or really anyone wanting a career in IT is that you are going to be lifelong learner and that skills and knowledge you acquired yesterday may not be relevant tomorrow. So, I like to try and learn as much as I can every month. Below are a number of links to Online Video and Podcasts of learning material I have found helpful and I hope you find it interesting and useful.

Learning Rxjs (Bonnie Jean Brennan) - A really nice course on Linkedin. I enjoyed Bonnies's presentation style.
