JustForFunc looks really good.

Shameless plug: https://www.youtube.com/LiveOverflowCTF not directly programming, but hopefully still interesting

i love your channel! It contains just enough technical details to be interesting, but isn't made too overly dense so as to be boring or snooze inducing.

I m glad that you made such good videos for me to enjoy!

I'll shamelessly plug my own channel as well: https://www.youtube.com/iamdavidwparker

Currently up to ~200 videos, mostly around WebGL and 3d Math.

Derek Banas for lots of fundamentals videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwRXb5dUK4cvsHbx-rGzSgw

He has tutorials on Python 2.7, MySQL, PHP, Assembly language, C++, C#, Objective C, Java, Android dev, OOP, Design Patterns, UML, JavaScript, AJAX, JQuery, Angular, Git, HTML, CSS, WordPress, XML, Investing, Marketing... I watched some of the Android development videos. It helped for me to slow them down, but then I hardly listen to English lately. I did like that he used large fonts in his IDE and zoomed in on the text.

Love his content!

The channel I like to watch once in a while is:


Bucky Roberts of https://www.youtube.com/user/thenewboston/playlists has tutorials on Javascript, ES6, Bootstrap, Angular 2, jQuery, React JS, Sass & SCSS, Less CSS, Grunt JS, Node.js, AJAX, MySQL, PHP, XHTML and CSS, HTML5, Java, Android dev, Objective C, iOS dev, Ruby, Python 3, Flask, GTK3 with Python3, C Programming, C++, C++ with Qt, C#, Git, and Django. I watched some of the C programming videos. The videos had tiny text in the upper left corner of the screen, with the rest of the screen a blank white background. Also he does have some buggy programs in the videos, but he has corrected source code for the C programs linked at https://thenewboston.com/forum/topic.php?id=1440 Despite these problems, worth watching for the very nice explanations.

Some other YouTube channels I subscribed to and find interesting are

CrashCourse : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX6b17PVsYBQ0ip5gyeme-Q

Stanford Graduate School of Business : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGwuxdEeCf0TIA2RbPOj-8g

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsXVk37bltHxD1rDPwtNM8Q

Y Combinator : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcefcZRL2oaA_uBNeo5UOWg

Oh hi another Kurzgesagt fan! :D

I'd Like to add ThinMatrix; he has a weekly devlog writing OpenGl games in java with lwgl going back over a year; great format. I don't like java myself but his planning and consistency is admirable. He gets a lot done and is just very pleasant to watch/listen to.

shameless plug: i made https://github.com/epoyraz/Awesome-Youtube-Channels a while ago. feel free to make pull requests :)

Would you be interested in listing some non-programming tech channels? EG TheSignalPath for (mostly RF) electrical engineering, Stefan Gotteswinter for machining, etc?

I'm looking for something similar. So thanks for at least letting us know about TheSignalPath.

Also the amp hour, I feel, is mostly about embedded but they have some interesting interviews in their archives.

For example the was an interview with Ronald quan. he wrote a cool book called make your own transistor radios. Also a couple with Michael Ossmann, the hackrf creator.

Otherwise I usually rely on the IEEE communications surveys and tutorials magazine to keep abreast of what's happening.

So I may as well list the channels I'd recommend here, despite them not being programming related.

3Blue1Brown (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYO_jab_esuFRV4b17AJtAw)

Thanks. I really like 3Blue1Brown.

I'm a huge fan of Francesc Compoy's Just for Func: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_BzFbxG2za3bp5NRRRXJSw

I'll throw out my channel. I do videos on Vue.js, Ember.js, Phoenix, Aurelia and basic tips for beginning web developers.


Added! I'm interested in great introductory JavaScript tutorials. I'm sure you're aware that there's a big demand for that since JS is eating the world...

There's also The Coding Train[0]. He does live coding challenges in Processing and JS. Not necessarily the most complex, but fun to watch someone else's thought processes.

Let's Build that App is good too for specific IOS Swift and Kotlin mobile development:


Also freecodecamp, mozilla and Google Developers all have good youtube channels for coding concepts and new stuff.

Traversy Media has been uploading great contents too. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC29ju8bIPH5as8OGnQzwJyA

Checked it out. Nothing of great interest. No curation or comments at all. Just seems to be a repackaging of youtube search results channels?

I've been looking for a site like this. Thanks for sharing.

Handmade Hero must be on this list!


Oops... It is on the list. But I highly recommend it.

I'm looking for similar stuff on signal processing, rf and communications in general. Any recommendations?

Learnwebcode is good
