Even though the Internet is overflowing with valuable information, it’s often a challenge to find everything you need in one place. To try and solve this problem, a Netherlands-based startup called Gibbon recently launched a website which lets you create learning playlists and share them with others.

Founded by a programmer, designer, coder, and growth hacker, all of whom are self-taught, the team are dedicated to giving people a seamless learning experience through their site. Some of the courses already available include “User Experience Design,” “World Domination with Haskell,” and “Becoming a Better Designer.”


If you’ve been struggling to teach yourself a new skill as part of your New Year’s resolution, it might be time to check out Gibbon. For those who’ve made significant progress of their own, you could help guide others interested in the same skill by creating your own playlist on the site.
