Sharing is so popular that a lot of developers use Youtube to do it. We made a list of Youtube channels about development that may trigger your interest.

Table of Content

Being a developer means we like to stay on top of the latest and the coolest technologies and practices. We know learning is a continuous process. And no, developers do not owe their successful careers to Google or Stack Overflow (not only, at least… just to be fair). 

As the tech community grows rapidly, it is crucial for us developers to catch up with the latest trends related to programming. A new coding language? New development methods? The latest tools that smoothen software delivery?

We have the capacity to identify problems and to do the best we can to solve them. Even more, we are proud to share back with the community because it feels great, it’s self-rewarding. And what’s the best place to talk about these achievements?

Internet of course! And especially social media.

Social media is a great way to collaborate on developments, meet other developers, share open-source projects, but we’ll focus on that later on. Today, we want to talk about Youtube specifically.

Youtube is, as everyone knows, the giant of the online video industry. There are all kinds of content on there, from cats dancing on couches to 75 year-olds explaining how to nurture your hydrangeas (yep yep… and useful too if you’re into this kind of stuff!).

Just like Google, Youtube is a great source of knowledge. Developers know that which is why they sometimes bother querying that issue they’ve been wrestling with for the last 10 hours. (And yes, this is literally a testimonial here).

Sharing is so popular that a lot of developers spare some time to share their projects, their professional lifestyle, and feelings. So we made a list of Youtube channels about development that may trigger your interest.

There you are, 8 active youtube channels! Each one is unique simply because these developers don’t have the same approach to software and because their content strategy is different. They all tell a different story!

We hope that these channels will inspire you to become an even better developer and that we saved you hours of research. You’re welcome ;-)
