Top 5 best YouTube channel for programmers

Ok so in this blog imma show the top 5 best youtube channel that I personally use to learn. Keep in mind that these all are my suggestions, everyone has a different taste.

Join my discord server and talk with many programmers in there
- First 25 people to join will get special role

Number 1 - FreeCodeCamp

So FreeCodeCamp is a really good youtube channel for everyone who is learning to code and want to learn to code, they make large, small and video for everything, they also have a forum where you can read blogs. Their videos are one of the best although I have met many people who dont like Free Code Camp.

Number 2 - Transvercy Media

This is almost same as free code camp, makes great video, of many languages and big or small videos. I dont have watched much videos of Transvercy Media so I dont know what to tell but yeah as far I have a watched its really great. also I havnt met anyone who said anything bad for this channel.

Number 3 - Programming with Mosh

Mosh Hamedani ( his name ) provides tons of tutorials of trending and emerging web languages and technologies. He also makes large and small videos but mainly cover Python, Javascript, C# etc.

Number 4 - Dev Ed

Edward Simon who has a great sense of humor, teaches frontend languages and libraries like JavaScript, React and backend runtime environment like Node.js. He also teaches web design, 3D modeling using tools like Figma, Sketch, and Photoshop without getting you bored.

Number 5 - Web Dev Simplified

This is my personal best, maybe I think DevEd and Web Dev Simplified is draw but yeah. He mainly focus on JavaScript.

Haha comment the next 5 :)

FunFunFunction - discontinued, but still has tons of interesting stuff
ContinuousDelivery - Talks mostly about CD, but lots of other great topics as well
Kent C. Dodds - not really a traditional channel. He does live sessions where he talks about lots of JS related topics.
The 8 Bit Guy - not a programming channel. If you curious how old computers worked, this is very entertaining.

"Their videos are one of the best although I have met many people who dont like Free Code Camp" - that's intriguing, so it's good, but many people don't like it ... what's the reason then for the dislike?

I'd give Free Code Camp a thumbs up because: "they also have a forum where you can read blogs" ... not everyone likes watching Youtube vids, some people just prefer reading (or am I a hopelessly old-fashioned dinosaur now?)

haha that last line was good, although I also prefer reading blogs, the reason is, I broke my speakers ;-;

Here are my top 3 coding channels

  1. Ben Awad - React tutorials
    Currently updates to his startup (very entertaining if you enjoy dry, sarcastic humor)

  2. The Coding Train - P5.js Visualizations
    Livestreams and videos (which sometimes are cut down livestreams without the debugging). Great explanations also of the underlying logic behind the problems and gives ideas on how to improve or expand the code and encourages you to put your own spin on it. Great community around him as well.

  3. Brackeys - GameDev C#/Unity
    Unfortunately not active anymore but all his old videos will guide you in the right direction if you wanna start building games.

Some bonus channels for entrepreneurship, tips on how to negotiate offers, Design, entertainment (from more serious to less):
Justin Kan (Twitch Co-founder), Clément Mihailescu, Pragmatic Engineer, Figma, David R.B., Tren Black, Joma Tech, Michael Reeves, Dani, Codebullet, Randy

Hope I help some of you find some new gems 🚀
