Programmers are spoiled for high-quality learning resources. Whether it's Stack Exchange, GitHub, or even Reddit, techies are but a click from world-class insights from the smartest people in the field.

But there's one that stands out - YouTube. It comes as no surprise that Google estimates that 7/10 YouTube viewers use the platform to ask for help with a problem they're having with work, studies or hobbies.

The beginning of 2020 is a fantastic time to hone your skills and learn something, whether you're new to programming or a seasoned veteren, and YouTube is a great place to start.

Searching for the best channels can take a lot of work, but we have you covered. Here are 5 YouTube channels that will benefit developers of all levels.


DevTips is the brainchild of Google Interaction Designer Travis Neilson. It features weekly videos with clear and easy how-to tutorials on all things web design and development. Beyond that, Travis and his team offer entertaining and practical insights for young web dev professionals.

Wes Bos

Canadian full stack developer Wes Bos has been posting content for almost ten years .He posts videos that are easy to understand and fun to watch, explains the most basic Java concepts, and carries you along to become well-versed in the world of web dev.

A great place to start is with his 30 day Vanilla JavaScript challenge.

Traversy Media

Traversy Media (formerly Codecourse) fits the “does-what-it-says-on-the-tin” mould. It features scores and scores of video dedicated to teaching code and all things code-related. They boast short, snappy tutorials that cut right to the chase, brilliant for programmers who are short on time and need quick answers.

We recommend having a look at Traversy Media’s practical guide to web development in 2020.


Udacity pitches itself as a “pioneer” in the world of online education, and a “university by Silicon Valley”. It promises to teach industry-ready programming skills, real credentials, and above all, at an affordable price. Udacity has a terrific collection of whip-smart videos for beginners on HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, as well as more advanced videos on app development, web performance optimisation, and UX Design.

Udacity’s Intro to HTML and CSS is a great place to begin.

Game Dev Underground

Game Dev Underground is a marketing and connection platform for indie game developers to engage with one another and get their game out to the masses. With automated marketing tools, and a range of features designed to get developers together, the core focus of the underground is to get games where they belong: in the hands of gamers.

Its YouTube channel is on point, where founder Tim Ruswick explores the entire game dev process, from conception, design, to launch and beyond.
