Hey! I’ve never really studied coding at any university.. just read alot of visual basic books a few years ago and some html/xhtml, css and basic php & mysql stuff..
So my question is what type of college education would be best for me if I would like to work with websites/themes and API/Java developement?
You don’t need to join a college for that unless you value the certificate/diploma/degree.http://tutsplus.com http://teamtreehouse.com http://www.codecademy.com http://www.codeschool.com
They should all get you up to speed. If you have no experience at all, I recommend team tree house because you can start with the very basic courses.

I will look at all these sites for sure =) but the reason as of why I want to know what the best education would be is since most schools in sweden offers good internships which often ends up as a good job.. basicly anything you studie here has internships dunno if that’s how it is everywhere else but yeah
I’m interested in this too
We’ve sent you a long, long message which, we hope, will help you on your path to success. @Themefusion You are right, codeacademy is a true hack! Don’t hesitate to get to it.
Oh, here’s a tip to truly understand design and understand why it is so important. hackdesign.org (It’s a “course” made by probably the greatest minds of modern design.)
We wish you all the best.
I really liked some courses available on http://lynda.com , they helped me alot. Also there are very good tutorials on tuts+ netwrok (articles and screencasts) which I refer to from time to time and I hope they’ll help you learn a lot. Treehouse is a good resource too.
Hope this will help

I’m in the same position as dansjostedt, only difference is you probably are a bit more educated in all things code than I am at this very moment. Teamtreehouse has managed to convince me most thus far, haven’t signed up yet tho. Kinda like the way they present themselves and you can start from the ground up.
On topic: regarding going back to school, a diploma is just a piece of paper telling other people you read stuff, followed courses and completed some form of exams. I like to see my college degree as an entry ticket – a proven acquired skillset is far more superiour. Good thing, as a developer you can prove your skillset by building up a portfolio. Something you can do hand-in-hand with selling your items on Themeforest. More so, it’s a constant learning experience – so you can do something fun, earn something from it, learn new things and sharpen your skills whilst building a portfolio. That’s 1, 2, 3 and 4 birds with one stone!
Fortunately, training – is no longer a luxury, available only to a minority; Today you do not even necessarily go to school or go to university. The Internet has made ??it possible to disseminate knowledge for free or at an affordable price. Codeschool offer first month trial: http://webuilddesign.com/enroll-in-code-school-at-9-dollars/
