Top youtube teachers for web development

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.
