Best python focussed YT coach. Proposes software engineering as a skill rather than a string of videos on the new hot framework (though there is a little of that too, to appease the algo gods)

Not specific to "developing software", so to speak, but one I haven't seen mentioned yet is and

I think there's ~400 well explained Leetcode problems across both channels (correct me if I'm wrong). It's a very valuable source of information!

The net ninja for me is one of the best channels of YouTube and my reason for this is that he explains and breaks the concept down well secondly,he doesn't just release 2 hours videos even if it a project based tutorial but rather breaks each concept into a separate videos of about 10 mins which I love so much because it helps me know what exactly am learning at that point and what the focus is on

freeCodeCamp is excellent! Tutorials for almost everything. They feature many other channels in their videos too. Can't recommend them enough!

It depends on which one you are comfortable with. I remember it might have been a few days ago when I recommended someone the YouTube channel I liked, but he actually did not like it.
