In my opinion they are at best okay. Maybe 6/10 for the best ones.

If the tutorial is good, such as (in my opinion) Free Code Camp, then they are okay.

I remember doing LearnYouNode in the past and hated it. As a complete beginner to Node and inexperienced programmer, I felt like I learned some very specific and shallow stuff without any background as to how the thing works and how to use it in a project. To it's defence, maybe the target audience is experience programmers who are new to Node.

On the other hand, challenges like LeetCode and such are very good. They are not tutorials though.


I agree. I faced a lot of frustration myself while attempting learnyounode. Would you have liked it better if the readme was more helpful, and was written like a tutorial than a challenge?


Yes I personally would have liked it a lot better as a tutorial. Maybe it was just a mismatch of my expectations and the intended audience, however a lot of people strongly recommended it for complete beginners to Node. I didn't have enough programming experience to judge for myself at that point.
