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.

MasterClass logoMasterClass

MasterClass has amongst the highest production quality of all online learning platforms. We like their concept of creating courses with world-renowned experts in their respective fields and combining this with awesome production value. With this high quality bar, it's clear why MasterClass doesn't have the most extensive course catalog. They focus on quality over quantity and offer courses on all kinds of topics, both career-related and recreational. Overall, we recommend MasterClass for students that enjoy watching courses from their favorite athletes, musicians and chefs and that appreciate the amount of effort MasterClass puts into producing these classes. Students looking for courses to advance their career might find a better offering elsewhere.
