As a junior web developer in the industry, one of my biggest challenges was to find the right resources to use and learn. Besides as a beginner, you need to stay sharp and up-to-date and learn by watching live code examples.
And this is where YouTube comes into the game. YouTube is a video sharing service where users can watch, like, share, comment and upload their videos.
Apart from YouTube, there are online platforms that have courses which do the same thing and you can buy or watch and learn. The only negative in this - in my opinion - is that not everyone has the stamina to buy or watch a 35hrs course video that it may outdated in a few months.
