When I started to learn web development, w3schools did not offer so many languages’ tutorials as they offer now. They are now providing tutorials relating to HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JSON, PHP, Python, AngularJS, React.js, SQL, Bootstrap, Sass, Node.js, jQuery, XQuery, AJAX and many more.

If you want to learn and revise web development then there is no better option than w3schools as everything is clearly visible and they also highlight important points that you must always remember.

5. YouTube (free)

It again needs no introduction, it is probably the most popular platform where you can learn to do web development from top educators free of cost.

After you have learnt web development, and you want to make some project like Twitter clone or something else, you can always find a cool guy on YouTube giving tutorial for the same. So YouTube is certainly the best online resource for learning web development.

Coursera is also an amazing online platform that hosts courses from top universities around the world. They offer individual web development courses as well as specializations. They really provide high-quality content as it is delivered by world-class professors.
