To be honest, we are really fortunate to live in a world of technology where you have access to a lot of resources like free tutorials, books, and courses to learn whatever we want, all thanks to the Internet.
You can literally learn whatever you want and that too, without spending too much money like Coding, Web Development, Mobile Development, Database, Cloud Computing, Machine Learning, or whatever you want.
You don't need to pay any fees, but you must have a good internet connection to take full advantage of these online resources.
This is one of the best places for online learning. You will get free online courses and tutorials in all the latest technology and programming language like Java, Spring, Data Structure and Algorithms, Selenium, REST, etc. It provides both free and paid resources.

The paid resources are also very cheap, and you can purchase on just $9.99 during their flash sale, which happens quite often. It's full of some of the great teachers like Colt_Steele, Rob Percival, Stephen Grider, Jose Marcial Portilla, John Purcell, etc.
The best part of Coursera is that it offers online courses from Universities like Stanford, University of London, University of Michigan, Colorado, Imperial College of London, and many more.

You can gauge the popularity of this course by looking at the number of students enrolled, currently, 5M+, which is a very high number for any online FREE course.
This is one of the most awesome community websites which will help you to learn to code for free, build real-world projects, and get a job as a developer.
Founded by [Quincy Larson], this is a really excellent place to start your coding journey. They even have a big Facebook group (freecodecampearth) where you can ask questions and share your learning experience, and their Medium publication [freeCodeCamp] is the most significant Medium publication for Programming articles.
As [Quincy Larson] pointed out in comments, freeCodeCamp also has a YouTube channel, which has hundreds of free courses on topics like Python, Git, GraphQL, SQL, database schema design, and a lot of advanced topics.

The code can be viewed and run directly from the lessons. This course has been created by Arnav Agarwal, a full-stack engineer. Arnav has attended a coding boot camp and has taught at another one.
