5 Beginner-Friendly Coding Livestreams to Learn Programming

2020 has been a great year for code livestreams. Stuck at home, developers took to their OBS setups to share their coding projects with their peers. And viewers tuned in to watch a fellow developer struggle through a programming issue, get stuck, google things, and eventually figure things out, and found their coding communities in the process.

But if you are a code newbie, you might find it daunting to follow along with the experienced developers' livestreams. Fear not, for you have your own peers learning new tech stacks live! Here are five of our favorite beginner-friendly streamers that you can watch to learn programming:

Great! Thanks for this, I will use this one as a reference where to learn more about programming. Just wanted to add one website which can serve as a reference to those who thinks on pursuing web development.

I'm in Leon Noel's boot camp, and it's fantastic. He has been teaching web dev/software engineering for years and completely understands the challenges new students face. Tons of material and resources--be sure to join the Discord channel for additional perks!
