Summary
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.

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.
