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.

LinkedIn Learning logoLinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is one of the largest online learning platforms, which can offer a lot of benefits that we like through the direct integration into the LinkedIn platform, like LinkedIn Premium access, as well as the direct integration of certificates from LinkedIn Learning into your LinkedIn profile. The instructors on LinkedIn Learning are highly qualified, and the courses cover all relevant career-focussed skills, which is why we can particularly recommend LinkedIn Learning for young professionals trying to upskill.
