Great post, Emma!
Budget-saving tip: In the U.S., Lynda.com can often be accessed for free if you have a current membership with your local public library (which is also frequently free).
Look for something like "Online Learning Resources" on your library's website. For example, if you're in the Silicon Valley area, the Santa Clara County Library link for Lynda is listed here.
Similarly if you're a resident of Queensland Australia you can access Lynda through SLQ ( not SQL ;) )

We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
