Developers/Designers/Other - How can I learn more?

First, I love the idea here behind Longposts, much like Ev's Medium, as another user has pointed out. There is a ton of potential here to evolve web content in a way that is sorely needed.

That being said, I wanted to reach out to the people much smarter than I am when it comes to these sorts of things for some help -- i.e. developers, designers, code wizards, etc. My plea to you all is to help me learn a little more.

I do have a pretty solid base (not a n00b), but it's helpful to at least understand things on a greater level, even if you can't build something yourself -- I've found that to help a ton even in my current job (I handle all the web content/marketing for a school - which consists of a lot of design, web work, advertising, etc). I also work, and learn, best by just doing things. I enjoy fully immersing myself into a topic until I've learned all I can.

So what is the best way to learn your sorts of stuff? Are there books/sites you recommend? Any sort of online school (preferably cheap, or free)? Sites Code Academy? I figure there is a lot of information to navigate, so what better way for a good start than to ask you all.

Thanks for any help.
