So this time we found for you the scope of the 6 neat YouTube channels where you can watch how other programmers solve everyday challenges. Take the advice from their experience:
A former Spotify developer delivers highly engaging, personal and informative content. His videos are quirky, surprisingly funny and equal parts entertainment and education. The content ranges from in depth technical explanations of the map, reduce and restructuring, to more high-level concepts like composition vs inheritance and burnout
- LevelUpTuts — Scott channel has no favorite themes, interested in everything about development
Scott has an overwhelming wealth of superb content, almost 1000 videos ranging from VS code tutorials, React, React Native, Meteor, Drupal, Magneto…. And more! The videos are split into easily digestible blocks, and more focused on practical, functional application. Perfect for that moment when you have to learn Drupal 8 in a week and need some guided hands on experience. Thoroughly recommended
- Computerphile is a channel that focuses on computer science
If you’re after for something a bit more computer science, perhaps something that delves into the real nitty gritty of some specific topics – Computerphile is your channel. The inherent strength of this channel is in the leveraging of working professionals and deep academics to explain complex topics. It lends a unique flavor and dynamic to the videos as each one has a different presenter. The content ranges from Why C is so influential, an explanation of pointers, to a 15 minute video explaining the Wanacry virus or the role of Matrixes in computer graphics. Overall a fantastic resource for those wanting to expand on some highly technical concepts
- TechQuickie is made to explain the technology for you
This channel is dedicated to explaining everyday technologies for the everyday laymen. The videos are incredibly well polished, the production quality is second to none, and the content is primed in such a way that you gain value from every video.
