Have you ever dreamed of creating a website that generates money? Or better, have you ever wished to quit your job and live the perfect life having unlimited income and working less than 10 hours per week?

If no, then this article is not for you.

It's a long road, full of obstacles, hard times and sacrifices, BUT IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Nowadays, being poor or in an undeveloped country is not a reason for you to stay poor. In fact, these should be your everyday motivators in order to work hard and succeed. It's simple, you only need a laptop and internet.

This article will introduce you to one of the best 5 web developers that you should follow to stay on the right track to ace a job at Google, Microsoft or even build your dream website.

1-Jose Marcial Portilla

Jose is a brilliant developer and teacher. He's talented in all programming fields but he's best as a fullstack web developer, machine learning and data scientist.

His best selling and top rated Udemy courses just describe how successful he is.

You can find his courses on Udemy, but I recommend the following courses:

a- https://www.udemy.com/complete-python-bootcamp/

b- https://www.udemy.com/python-and-django-full-stack-web-developer-bootcamp/

c- https://www.udemy.com/python-for-data-science-and-machine-learning-bootcamp/

2- Laurence Bradford

A real hard worker, self-taught. She's on her way of living the "perfect life" that you're dreaming of.

She's the creator of learntocodewith.me

In her website, you can find free tips and hacks to become a successful developer and valuable programming course bundles and much more.

Visit her website and join more than 50000 developers. If you don't then you will miss the following:

A- Learn about the best online resources and tutorials to level up your digital skills.

B- Hear inspiring stories from others to keep you motivated.

C- Have your beginner-level questions addressed

D- Get emails 1-2 times per week.

...and much more

The best part is that she's friendly and always happy to help you.

3- Emma Wedekind

Emma is a great UX engineer, fullstack web developer and a writer too.

She has created one of the most useful websites that you should visit if you're serious about success.

Codingcoach.io which introduce you to mentors in the easiest possible way.

What's a mentor? A mentor is a person who's role is to share his/her own knowledge, advice, and resources to you. Besides, a mentor may share with a mentee information about his or her own career path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modeling.

4- Jose Salvatierra

Jose is an amazing programmer and talented teacher.

He's a team-driven software developer who aspires to achieve the best results while keeping everything as simple as possible for others to use and continue developing on top of it.

Jose is a friendly man, he loves helping others learn and achieve their potential.

I highly recommend his top Udemy courses, these are some that I prefer:

a- https://www.udemy.com/the-complete-python-web-course-learn-by-building-8-apps/

b- https://www.udemy.com/course/rest-api-flask-and-python/

c- https://www.udemy.com/advanced-rest-apis-flask-python/

5- Albino Tonnina

Last but not least, the most powerful web developer I've seen by far!

Albino is a role model for all ambitious developers. In fact, he's self taught developer for more than a decade now. Besides, this mighty full stack developer loves to help people and share his knowledge.

If you're wondering what's the secret behind Albino, you just have to check his website (works much better on a PC)

You can also check his github repository

And his article "how to lose an it job in 10 minutes" is a must read:

I hope this article finds you well and helps you to achieve your goals and dreams. Always remember, what comes easily goes easily. Hard work, consistency and passion are your tools to success.

Editor guide

Brad Traversy should be at the top of this list...ijs...


I can still include him, thanks for pointing that out. If you know more talented developers please let me know. There might be a second part for this one


Chris Sean is another.

Thanks Ralph


Brad is the man! So knowledgeable on multiple aspects of programming.


Moshfegh Hamedani one of the best.


I agree as well. While there many great developers and teachers out there like Brad and Maximilian Schwarzmuller (not sure if I got the last name correct), I believe in terms of teaching and ability to make people understand the content, Mosh is definitely a genius. He's just a gifted teacher besides being so knowledgeable.
