I did the Udacity programming course, and I found it really helpful. I was in high school at the time, but I could pick it up at night and it felt really low pressure.

The coffee shop atmosphere can be surprisingly conducive to productivity, and you can meet some interesting people. I've gotten into a lot of good discussions about writing style by reading my book at a coffee shop instead of at home.
