10 YouTube Channels for Learning Web Development

YouTube is a great tool to improve your coding skills, efficiency, speed, understanding.

Take it this way, as a developer it is often recommended you go to GitHub, download or clone some projects to view their codes and learn how they were able to solve some problems or their approach to solving that problem.YouTube channels are same, in fact you get to watch others code, solve problems in their way and you can code with them as you watch.

YouTube videos are popularly subdivided into different parts i.e Crash Courses, Courses, Projects Making, Tips & Recommendations, Advice & Experience etc. Being divided into these, be guarranteed that you will learn a lot from watching these videos from the channels am about to list out (as well as other channels of course).

So what am going to do now, is list out (in no particular order) the channels I recommend you subscribe to and why.

Note: The number of YouTube subscriptions for each channel is only valid as of when writing this.

Traversy Media has videos that are mostly around full-stack development involving crash courses, courses and projects making with JavaScript, CSS, HTML, Bootstrap, jQuery, Django, MERN stack, React, Vue, Python, MongoDB, NodeJs, ExpressJs, SASS, Restful API, PHP, Flux, Angular, GraphQL, Firestore, etc.
