During these times, wouldn't it be nice to improve your skills while simply taking an online course?

But do these courses actually work?

I've asked Reddit and it turns out that they do surprisingly

So today you'll find the best web development course for 2021, according to Reddit.

Where to find online courses

From the first view, it seems like udemy is the way to go if you want to improve your programming skills.

Udemy offers a pretty big range of online courses for almost anything. The web development courses however are especially good.

Some instructors offer web development courses on their own platform. We will go into that later on.

First, here are the winners upfront:

So let's take a look at this course. (I've actually done it myself so you can read my opinion in the end).

This web dev course is actually insane when you look at the stats.

  • 60 hours of video-on-demand.
  • It was last updated in March 2021.
  • Over half a million students are enrolled.
  • This course has an overall rating of 4.7.

So as it seems, people really enjoy this course.

The reason is simple.

As you can see when looking at the hours, this course is TREMENDOUSLY big. Which means you'll get a lot for your money.

And that's not it. You'll also going to learn quite a bit.

Colt has a great style of teaching. Every time you think you stuck, he suddenly takes the weird parts and explains them very well.

There were a few users that said this course doesn't get enough updates, however as of now, the course was updated in March 2021.

I had a lot of fun doing that course.

No matter if an older Bootstrap version is being used, the concepts doesn't change and I think it's a great resource for everyone who wants to get into web development.

Pretty good as well.

No matter if you check Reddit, quora, or another web development community. These two courses are HUGE.

Web Development can be tricky but Angela explains it very well.

The reason is simple. Wes does a lot of Web Development courses and he's one of the funniest guys doing this.

His courses include projects, but he also goes through the basics step by step.

Which is awesome, because you can use these videos as a reference later on when you might need to refresh your memory.

Wes offers a lot of different courses, some of them free. Here are the current courses by Wes Bos:

A total recommendation!

My review?

Since I am completely self-learned I did these courses myself.

And I can tell you they are SURPRISINGLY easy to follow.

Even if you already develop pages, it's simply fun to recreate these projects on your own.
