Coding train is pretty awesome too. Javascript/processing with visual representation of what you're doing, fun teacher and some physics/maths



Yeah, how did I miss The Coding train.. good catch.πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing.


Hi, thanks for contributing.
I think you missed my mention of Programming With MoshπŸ˜€

Will include the other two you mentioned, in the post.


Yeah, My bad πŸ˜…. I missed it.

That's okay.. thank youπŸ™‚


Will have to check out a few of these.

Sad Tech with Tim didn't make it on there. He's a pretty brilliant teacher for such a young fella.

Code drip is amazing too, super high quality well thought out videos


Hey, nothing to be sad of, will add Him. πŸ™‚ Thank you for suggesting πŸ˜€


Not sure about TechLead. There was a lot of drama about him on reddit.


Yeah, he is more comedy now a days. Plus shilling out his interview academy

Still, funny, and has some good content in his library


Okay .. thanks for sharing πŸ™‚


I really like codingarden ( youtube.com/c/CodingGardenWithCJ ).
He used to do livestreams on YT and Twitch but not he only does Twitch and vod them on YT. But i learn stuff while watching something that is entertaining (altough the vods could be very long!)


Great! Will check it out, thank you for the additionπŸ™‚


You've a good YouTube channel.. keep the good work going. Subscribed πŸ™‚


I hear you. Yeah I agree. But there were a few videos of theirs which were educative, hence I didn't want to miss them, and also as developers I thought it's good to have respect for all, as even that content creation that they're doing is difficult and needs dedication.
I understand your point of view. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚


I'm pretty sad that you missed one of the best and most amazing one out there:
The coding train:
It references many algorithms like A*, flock simulations and more.


Heyy don't become sadπŸ™‚
I've added Him to the post, even I'm his fan πŸ˜ƒ
Thank you for suggesting πŸ™‚


Didn't know most of these channels, good one. Thanks.πŸ™Œ


Glad it helped. πŸ™‚


I think I know whom you speak of, and I would agree. A couple of these are more "for the views" style of entertainment and can be dangerous if taken too seriously


Thank you for sharing your perspective Ronnie πŸ™‚


No offense but I didn't find Telusko good at all(personal opinion). For Java and Spring related I would suggest Java Brains. Do check him.
Good list though, will surely check. Also comment section has many good suggestions.


Thanks for sharing your opinion. Every honest opinion matters. πŸ™‚
Thanks! πŸ˜ƒ


It's nice that you aggregated these channels and wrote a post on it. Pretty helpful πŸ‘


Thank you. Glad it helpedπŸ™‚


Backend learning
Many videos organised into playlists explaining in a very approachable manner network and backend concepts. Basic and advanced concepts.
I recommend it very much. Very unique channel. Hussain is great and humble person.


I don’t know about you guys but The Tech Lead is pretty toxic imo. I would like to add one more channel to the list. Ben Award is really good too and quite entertaining to watch.


Oh yeah Ben Awad... I started watching his videos recently too. Thanks for the addition πŸ™‚


You forgot to mention that dev ed occasionally teaches magic tricks πŸ˜„


Oh is itπŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… He engages really well.. thanks for addingπŸ˜…πŸ˜…


Good collection . Btw, your channel looks great too. Keep going!


yeehh free code camp...........the best


Yep totallyπŸ™‚ thank you for sharing your perspective.


Thanks a lot, great list! I had already subscribed to some of them, but didn't know half of your list! πŸ‘Œ


Great! Glad it helpedπŸ™‚
