My top 12 resources for learning Computer Science!

Learning computer science isn't just about coding and competitive programming. It's a field that demands innovation and development.

It can be in any specialization but one thing is for sure every Computer Science learner starts his journey with either Web development or App development.

Youtube is the best source of learning and what's the best part? It's absolutely free! All we invest is time :).

In this article, I would like to share the sources that I find useful and worth following -

  • Development

  • Web Dev Simplified
    It teaches web development skills and techniques in an efficient and practical manner. It covers topics from basics to advanced using the most popular and trending tech stacks.

  • JavaScript Mastery
    The purpose of JavaScript Mastery is to help aspiring developers to take their development skills to the next level and build awesome apps.

  • Tech With Tim
    He teaches Python Programming, Game Development, Pygame, Java Tutorials, and Machine Learning videos.

  • freeCodeCamp.org
    They are an open-source community of people who learn to code and build projects for nonprofits. They have got excellent teachers who cover almost every topic in Computer Science.

  • Guided Projects

  • Computer Science
    The content varies from teaching basic languages in an efficient manner to building projects fro solidifying concepts. It covers many different programming languages like Python & C, and topics like Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI).

  • Ania KubΓ³w #JavaScriptGames
    One of the best channels to learn game development in JS through guided projects. Ania teaches you JavaScript,
    React, Html, CSS, and Express Tutorials in game form!
    She is from a financial background who has switched to tech because of her obsession with coding & her aim is to teach you how to code, not to care about how silly she looks doing it.

  • Coding

  • Errichto
    He is a competitive programmer who has been a finalist of multiple big programming competitions like ICPC, Facebook Hacker Cup, and Google Code Jam. His videos include explaining Algorithms, competitive programming, coding interviews.

  • KevinNaughtonJr
    He's a software engineer in New York City who makes videos about coding interviews and topics related to programming.

  • CS Dojo
    This channel is hosted by Y.K Sugi. He's an ex-Google engineer who makes videos about programming and computer science here.

    {To be honest, his video quality is awesome :) }

  • AI/ML/Maths

    3Blue1Brown
    Hosted by Grant Sanderson. This channel is some combination of math and entertainment, depending on your disposition. The goal is for explanations to be driven by animations and for difficult problems to be made simple with changes in perspective.

    { For me, this is by far one of the best channels I found when it comes to explaining this stuff! }

  • UI/UX Designing

  • DesignCourse
    This channel is hosted by Gary. He's created close to 100 courses from graphic design to advanced frontend development. He's a very experienced course instructor. He teaches full-stack development along with tutorials related to UI/UX, Frontend Dev, Backend Dev, Graphic Design, and more!

  • PiXimperfect
    It's hosted by Unmesh Dinda, is a free resource for learning Photoshop and Lightroom. PiXimperfect believes in learning the concept, rather than learning the steps so that you can translate "your" imagination visually to the world.

  • Some other channels worth mentioning

  • Programming with Mosh

  • Traversy Media


When it comes to websites, I prefer:

  • Qwiklabs
    It provides you a hands-on experience on the Google cloud platform.

  • Udacity
    The introductory courses of this website itself are very rich in content!

  • GeeksforGeeks
    One of the best spots to get a good list of coding questions and interview/internship experiences.

  • CP-Algorithms
    It has got a wonderful list of the number of algorithms used in competitive programming with a good explanation.

  • AWS Guide (Github repo)
    A practical guide to learn about AWS Cloud Services.



I hope this has been a useful reference for every reader :)

Thanks for sharing! Just stumbled across this. I've been putting together a list of my own, I'm going to include some of the resources you've provided. Maybe some of the stuff I've found can be useful to you as well: Guide to Learn CS online
