I would call this the “self-taught individual’s portrait”. Both fortunately and unfortunately, no single learning resource is complete or entirely suitable for any person willing to self-educate. Whether that’s Udacity, CodeSchool, Treehouse or any other similar resource out there, the characteristics of this portrait remain, and are spot on. I’ve used a high number of resources in my self-studies and Udacity ranked the lowest, simply because their teaching style that did not fit my way of ingesting information; nevertheless, I’ve seen plenty who would say the same about Treehouse and CodeSchool, both of which rank quite high on my list.

The bottom line is, just as I mentioned in my article about coding and how it’s become pop culture:

Of course you can transpile this into most industries, not just software development. At the end of the day, success is a self-induced state of mind.
