youtubeFirst off is a site that you’re all familiar with. It’s called YouTube! So you just head over to the YouTube homepage, it has a plethora of content from competent people that can show you how to code.

So let’s say for example you want to learn python, you just go to the search bar, type in ‘python for beginners’ and you will see a bunch of content from different content providers.

Another way you could search is just typing in ‘python programming’. And this works with just about any programming language out there. A lot of these content providers also provide playlists which can be a convenient way for learning on YouTube.
