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.

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.
