According to 400 Devs, what are the best sites for learning code?!

44 Sites were the winners! Some well known and some...not so much! (or at least for me).

I asked on Twitter "What is your favorite site to learn programming?" and I got almost 400 answers.

If a site doesn't belong to the Most Common/Very common section it doesn't mean that it's not good! Work with the sites that best suit your needs! For example, is an excellent choice for many people as it covers many aspects of programming, it's free and you don't have to download anything. Other sites are great too, it doesn't mean that they don't have quality learning paths or tutorials.

Thank you everyone for participating in Twitter :)

What about you? What is your favorite site?

Curious, how do you define most-, very-, not-so-, and uncommon answers?
What would be interesting to me is the code used to crunch your data.

That's why I have embedded the tweet. The answers are coming from there :)

Thanks ;)
