Summary
egghead.io logoegghead.io

With their clear focus on junior to mid-level developers, egghead fills a small niche in the online tech education space. We like that they have courses on rather niche topics, that you might not find elsewhere. Additionally, the courses regularly feature popular faces from the web development industry, which makes for more engaging content and ensures instructors are knowledgeable about the topics they teach. Overall, we can recommend egghead for junior web developers that want to delve a bit deeper into the ecosystem and learn new frameworks and tools.

freeCodeCamp logofreeCodeCamp

freeCodeCamp is an excellent platform for learning how to code. We particularly like that it's a non-profit and all the courses and learning materials are provided completely for free, even though their course catalog is fairly limited. Their courses are in-depth and come with an intuitive interface that is helpful especially for beginners. This is why we recommend freeCodeCamp for beginners that want to learn how to code. More advanced learners might be better off choosing a platform with a broader course catalog and a learning experience that less caters to beginners.
