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.

Udemy logoUdemy

Udemy is one of the most well-known online course marketplaces, and for a good reason. With their massive course catalog and offerings in many of the world's most spoken languages, chances are that you will find what you're looking for on Udemy. Even though nearly anyone can start uploading their courses to Udemy, the review system makes allows you to spot great courses super easily. We particularly like the great value that Udemy courses provide, giving you the best bang for your buck and making it the #1 most popular online learning platform worldwide.
