Once upon a time, I was a web development newbie. I had no idea where to start or who to turn to for guidance. I was going through my online bootcamp and taking notes for every lesson and picking my way through all of the exercises, but at the end of the day, I would still feel lost. Then, I stumbled upon the world of YouTube. I found some guys on there that are nothing short of miracle workers. They made web development make sense to me, and I’m here to introduce you to my top five favorite YouTube teachers of all time.
First up, we have Kevin Powell. This guy is the king of CSS. He has a wide range of tutorials on his channel that cover everything from the basics of CSS to more advanced topics like CSS grid and flexbox. He is known for his clear and concise explanations and a way of breaking down the most complex CSS concepts into bite-sized chunks that even I can understand. His tutorials are like a warm hug on a cold day, comforting and familiar. He also provides hands-on examples and projects that allow students to apply what they’ve learned in real-world situations. Additionally, Kevin has a relatable and friendly teaching style, which makes his videos enjoyable to watch. He is highly respected in the web development community and his tutorials are widely recommended for anyone looking to improve their CSS skills.

The Net Ninja, also known as Shaun Pelling, is a well-known YouTube teacher who has some really great walkthroughs. I enjoyed following along and picking up little gems of information as we built small projects that coincided with the lessons I had learned from my bootcamp. Shaun is another teacher that really makes things look simple and with his laid back style, I was left feeling confident and ready to take on the tech world.
And there you have it. I really cannot say enough how much each of these guys helped me along on my journey. Also understand that there are so many other great teachers on YouTube and I urge you guys to set some time aside to just explore and find someone that speaks to you. If you’re having a rough time wrapping your head around certain concepts or syntax, a quick 15 minutes with one of these gurus can really fill in the gaps. They made web development make sense to me, and I’m sure they’ll do the same for you.
