Here I've compiled a list of personal favorite devs on YouTube.
I added a couple of lines on each channel too, so it's easier to get what channel is about and why I included it. Enjoy!

1.Traversy Media

Lots of awesome crash-courses on various tech. Usually follows 20/80 rule on theory and practical side respectively. Lately some awesome guest hosts on the channel.

2.The Net Ninja

High-quality content in various technologies cut down in short videos on a particular topic. Awesome playlists.


Wide range of tech topics. The content is always well researched. Well-thought-out presentation with examples.

4.Ben Awad

Open thoughts on various topics (not necessarily direct coding-related always). Knows his stuff and a nice touch of humor here and there.

5.Clever Programmer

Great videos on languages, tools, practices, tips to become a developer. Lately a lot of live coding on the channel.

6.Coding Garden

Lots of live coding there, with live viewer interaction in the chat. Will answer your questions when possible. Might be fast-paced at times.

7.Web Dev Simplified

High-quality content. Topics are deep researched and the content is well-thought-out and easy to follow.


A must-have if you are in computers in general. A closer look at how things work, what's happening behind the scenes, and more.


Modern and cutting edge technologies. Awesome visuals and concise information. Quality content overall.

10.Florin Pop

Likes challenges, like doing X projects in X amount of time. Lot's of live coding mixed with separate videos on specific topics.


Best place for full-length tutorials (often 8 hours +). Lots of projects you can make practical use of afterwards.

12.Programming with Mosh

High-quality videos and topics are often explained better than elsewhere. Great thumbnails for easy navigation.

13.Javascript Mastery

A must-have for full-stack JS engineers. Lots of awesome projects focusing on both sides of the stack and how to deploy them.


Ex-Google and Ex-facebook engineer on various topics. Surely knows his stuff, tho, if you are a beginner, you might have trouble deciding whether he is for real or trolling at times.

15.Joma Tech

Quality, well-edited content. Similar to TechLead, but generally more artistic and movie-like. Likes to put an Easter-egg here and there too.

16.CS Dojo

Awesome channel if you are learning algorithms and data structures. Would highly recommend especially if you are in the job-seeking phase and preparing for interviews.

17.Ania Kubow

One of the most recent channels. Specifies in JS game development. Easy to follow. Great resource if you are looking to learn vanilla JS.

18.The Coding Train

Very enthusiastic about the topics. Surely knows his stuff. Usually fan interaction simultaneously during live coding sessions.

19.Colt Steele

One of the best selling instructors on Udemy has an awesome YouTube channel. Visually pleasing and high-quality content.

20.Dev Ed

22.Meth Meth Method

High-quality content. Great if you are looking for advanced JS or learning Canvas. Lots of best practices and elegant code.

23.Hitesh Choudhary

Creates useful AMAs and live videos often to interact with followers. Other videos short and concise on topic.

24.Wes Bos

Does some live coding once in a while. Knows his stuff and is a pleasure to listen to (as we know from Syntax.fm)

25.Coding Tech

This is basically TED for coders. A lot of awesome full-length tech talks posted there.

26.Derek Banas

Among the first YouTube dev channels. Very detailed, tho pretty fast-paced cover of features. Great for refreshing the particular tech.


Great channel on a wide variety of tech. Lots of tutorials sorted in the playlists based on the experience level of the viewer.

28.Dani Krossing

Formerly MMTuts. Recently changed the channel name and added gameplays and vlogs too. Great playlists on different tech.

29.Google Developers

Must-have for all the front-end devs out there. Lots of modern design tutorials, good for learning design tools and techniques.

33.Chris Coyier

Founder of css-tricks.com. As you might guess - mainly front-end oriented stuff in the channel. Grid, responsive design and all the good stuff.

34.Chris Hawkes

Mainly thoughts on broader and open topics like tool comparisons, career tips, top tech lists, advice on how to's, opinions, etc.


Lots of awesome talks on all the JS related topics. A great resource to follow along with modern trends and ever-evolving environment.

I felt like talking about Youtube channels the list would not be complete without mentioning some other channels that are non-directly related to coding. Here are some extras:


Everything around math and numbers. Awesome and enthusiastic hosts. Interesting topics and easy to follow.


Quality over quantity at it's purest. Uses manim opensource-engine for animations. Mindblowing stuff.


Well-researched content in various tech fields. Quality audio and editing.

I hope you enjoyed the read!

Editor guide

Great list! I follow quite a few of those already!

I would also add this one to the list:


And possible my channel as well πŸ˜‚


I recently watched few videos from Joshua fluke and hitesh choudhary and as a developer I have to say they are not experts on most the content they share. Yes, for a beginner they might be valuable and I understand that I don't upload videos so atleast some information is better than nothing.

But I'd say have some caution and watch other related videos too on a topic as their views and methods might not be accurate. I'd hate to see some beginner consider them expert and follow those guides or path they suggest.

Other channels you mentioned, I am subscribed to quite a lot of them and love the content.for example Derek banas or the coding train actually talk and show things like a real developer with experience. Their videos cover things more accurately. Wish I could do something about it other than just ranting here.


Great list! Subscribed to few new channels I did not know about. Thank you!

I have a channel of my own where I upload videos regularly about web development, javascript and react. If you want to check it out here is the link: youtube.com/channel/UC34UXFLKqdW3c...


Great list although there are some channels I disagree with (or find that they are focused on views rather than content).

I would like to mention one more channel here which imo should receive a lot of support.


Vishwas (the channel's creator) is a great teacher and is trying to make his channel into a one stop shop for React. He has videos about React basics, Hooks, React Storybook, Practical React, etc.

He's also working on a new series called React Render which basically covers th concepts of React rendering and other related processes in detail.


No hussein nasr?


Backend engineering
Very much recommend!


You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.

  • Thanks for this quote bro!
  • I'm starting it! Great will come!

you forgot fun fun function.
He no longer creates content but I think it's worth introducing.


I was thinking of including him during the writing actually (lots of great material there), but I decided to stick with active channels producing new content πŸ˜‰


You made the right choice.
But changing the title to "36 Awesome Dev People to Follow on YouTube" is another good option :)))


Hi, I am just getting started and would love to share my youtube for those interested in hearing about my perspective on open source and learn about github.


I am not going to take you seriously if you didn't mentioned the best YouTube channels for Developers like CodingPhase and Stefan Mischook.
