The Internet is an inexhaustible source of new knowledge from various fields. The downside is that such knowledge is too much and it is very difficult to understand the abundance of such resources. We have selected the most interesting, in our opinion, sites that will give you knowledge completely free of charge. You just should pay attention at:
