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.

Skillshare logoSkillshare

Skillshare offers a large catalog of courses on both career and hobby-related topics. We particularly like that you can get access to every course on the platform with just one, affordable subscription. You can also book one-on-one sessions with instructors, which is a bit pricey, but a super unique offering that no other online learning platform currently offers. We can therefore recommend Skillshare to anyone trying to learn digital & creative skills, especially if a subscription sounds better than buying individual courses.
