Hence, I am sharing some of the best YouTube channels, in no particular order, that you must definitely check out and take away as much as possible.

Ben Awad is a software developer who creates videos and uploads them on his channel about React, React Native, GraphQL, Typescript, Node.js, PostgreSQL, Python, and other videos where he shares his experiences. He is extremely experienced in React and has uploaded several projects developed with React on his channel.
Ben is incredibly witty and sarcastic in his videos, and his hate for Angular and his love for React is loved by his subscribers. He also has some unique videos on his hate for Angular. His videos, “I Love Angular.js” and “Google Knows Best”, are extremely funny and sarcastic.

Web Dev Simplified

Web Dev Simplified is another underrated channel that started in 2018. Kyle, a brilliant all-around developer, ensures that anything he teaches is easier to grasp and understand. There are videos on learning web development, a variety of several project ideas, and a plethora of useful tips and advice videos for all aspiring as well as seasoned developers.
The Net Ninja

The instructor has a warm and upbeat voice, makes learning enjoyable, and explains everything thoroughly. He even has several courses on Udemy, although his free videos on YouTube are of high quality and better (in my opinion).

An incredible channel that focuses on building projects in one video, and also explains things in their simplest form using animations. Started by Jeff Delaney in 2017, the channel has grown by leaps and bounds due to its phenomenal content on Web development.
Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/c/codeSTACKr
CodeSTACKr is another underrated channel that needs far more attention than it currently receives. Jesse Hall, a Senior Developer Advocate at MongoDB, launched this channel in 2018 as a challenge to show his teenage children that if he works hard and uploads consistently, he can earn subscribers. Fortunately, he did.
The channel has some of the most interesting programming videos on the platform. Jesse creates a monthly (formerly weekly) news video series on anything and everything linked to technology. He also invites teachers on a variety of other topics. Since he has worked in the software industry for more than 16 years, his videos are extremely well researched, and you will learn a lot from him.
There is no better platform to learn than YouTube, where you have an opportunity to learn almost anything for free, including web development. Of course, your dedication and hard work have to be on your end, and the most important aspect of learning is consistency.
Like everything in life, this compilation might not be the best and I may have listed some of my favourite channels from whom I have learned immensely. However, the list cannot be complete without an honourable mention of some of the other incredible channels — Derek Banas, Academind, Programming with Mosh, freeCodeCamp, and LevelUpTuts.
I am hopeful that you will definitely check out these channels that will help you learn and grow in your web development career.
