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

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!)

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

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 sad🙂
I've added Him to the post, even I'm his fan 😃

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. 🙂 Thanks for sharing 🙂

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.

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

Backend learning
youtube.com/c/HusseinNasser-softwa...
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.
