Most of my programming knowledge comes from the internet. From StackOverflow questions to articles to YouTube tutorials, the internet has so many free resources any developer can benefit from. One can learn an entire language by simply trying things out and Googling the rest. Once you've seen the solution enough times and begin to understand the solutions, you can quickly become a professional developer in any topic.
When looking for a quick solution or the correct syntax for writing something, sites like StackOverflow, W3Schools, GeeksForGeeks, and others are straight to the point and very helpful. When starting something completely new or when I need more details, I go to YouTube. I've used YouTube tutorials to learn Node.js and Express, C++, and much more.
After 10 years of programming experience, I decided to start my own channel, Jonah Lawrence • Dev Pro Tips to give back to the community and help others where I have struggled.
Below are 8 YouTubers I think every developer can benefit from:
Traversy Media features great web development and programming tutorials for all of the latest web technologies including Node.js, Angular 2, React.js, PHP, Rails, HTML, CSS and much more.
FreeCodeCamp has many free courses on almost any topic. It's a great place to go to learn something new.
James posts videos on web development, VS Code, and other tools. Also posts tips for being a better developer and communicator.
This is my channel that I started a few months ago. I post tutorials on web development, programming, RegEx, and coding productively. I hope to eventually cover the main concepts every developer should know about and help others not make the same mistakes I made when starting out.
I hope you enjoyed this list and I hope these people are ones you can learn from! If you are interested in improving your coding abilities, unsubscribe from distractions and subscribe to productive coding channels. I hope you find the ones above helpful and subscribe to your favorites!
