As Written by: Marlon on creativeglobalideas.com
If you are looking for a career in web development or it is simply your area of interest it can be hard figuring out where to start from. You could go for a short course but that will cost you some money. Some courses are expensive than others. Why spend money when you can learn web development at your home? Yes, you can learn web development without ever leaving your house. You can watch tutorials on YouTube and gain web development skills. Here are the 15 best YouTube channels to learn web development from.

We've updated this article for 2020.

As time goes on and technology continues to innovate, the lines have blurred a bit when it comes to ownership between web developers and IT. With so many software platforms available and the rise of the digital marketing trend, marketers, in general, are being required to have more technical skillsets. But let's make sure we understand the differences when it comes to the role of a web developer and an IT specialist, such as a technical engineer.

Technical engineers are IT experts who design, install and maintain computer systems. Their role includes building, configuring, testing, troubleshooting, and maintaining all sorts of systems consisting of the IT infrastructure, including hardware, software, and networks.

Web developers are programmers and can be considered software engineers that build web applications.

Web development could be considered in some cases a very small part of IT. However, we deal with many clients that ask for both, and while our IT staff is amazing, we don't provide web development support. Many IT folks get asked about web development and vice versa for web developers. It's important that they are kept separate. Bottom line, don't bite off more than you can chew.

If we can help you with your IT needs, let us know.

Now that we understand the difference, here it is, the ultimate list of YouTube channels for web development.

PS - we saved the best for last so make sure to check them all out!

YouTube Red Deal Forces ESPN To Pull Its Videos From YouTube

By Sarah Perez (@sarahintampa), Josh Constine (@joshconstine) as written on TechCrunch.com
The fallout from YouTube Red, its forthcoming ad-free subscription service, is already underway. Today, the majority of ESPN’s video content has been pulled off of YouTube in the US, as the sports network currently can’t participate in the YouTube Red service due to rights issues surrounding its content.
Though TechCrunch can now confirm that parent company Disney does have a deal with YouTube Red, ESPN itself doesn’t have permission to distribute its videos through a subscription video service like YouTube Red due to other contracts in has in place – including those with various distribution partners.
And because YouTube creators have to sign YouTube Red’s subscription deal or see their videos pulled from YouTube, much of ESPN’s content across a number of its channels is now gone in the US.
The change to ESPN’s YouTube channel was initially spotted by Deadspin, which found that most of ESPN’s channels were affected, including its main channel as well as other popular channels like Grantland, First Take, and the NBA on ESPN, for example. In total, 11 of ESPN’s 13 channels are impacted by this issue, while only X-Games and Nacion ESPN are still live.
As Variety notes, the most recent video on ESPN’s main channel is from January 2012, as the majority of ESPN’s more current content is now gone. It’s unclear if any of ESPN’s pulled content will ever return to YouTube in the US.
ESPN provided a statement, saying “ESPN is not currently part of the Red service. Content previously available on the free YouTube service will be available across ESPN digital properties.” At least that last part is good news for sports fans.
According to a YouTube spokesperson, Disney did sign the YouTube Red agreement, but ESPN’s rights and legal issues preclude being part of YouTube Red at launch. So essentially, because ESPN can’t legally have some of its content in subscription services in the US, it won’t be on Red, and therefore has to take down its own videos in from the ad-supported version of YouTube in the US, though some of its content remains visible in other parts of the world.


When YouTube was asked earlier this week about its terms related to YouTube Red, and specifically, what would happen if a partnered content creator didn’t agree to participate in the new subscription service, the company downplayed the potential impact, noting that nearly all of its community accepted the new agreement.
“The overwhelming majority of our partners, representing nearly 99% of the content watched on YouTube, have signed up,” a spokesperson told TechCrunch. “Videos of partners who don’t update their terms will be made private, but we remain committed to working closely with these partners with the goal to bring them on board.”
In other words, most creators seem to be happy for the option to have access to another revenue stream outside of advertising or sponsorships, which is how they monetize their YouTube videos today. On YouTube Red, YouTube is reportedly paying out 55 percent of its subscription revenue to the video publishers – the same percentage as the ad revenue it shares. (YouTube earlier said that the “vast majority” of revenue was being paid to creators, but really it’s just barely the majority.)
But YouTube saying creators of 99% of its watched content signed the Red deal is a hollow position because creators were coerced into the deal with devastating repercussions if they refused.
It’s understandable why YouTube wanted to launch a subscription service after watching the success of Netflix and Spotify. Ad revenue per user is relatively small, and both YouTube and creators can earn more per user if they’re $9.99 a month paid subscribers. For many creators, the deal is a good thing. And YouTube deserves credit for not cutting better deals for big media companies than small independent creators.
Still, its argument that the deal is beneficial to most and that YouTube simply couldn’t fathom having any content missing from its subscription service doesn’t justify it forcing creators to sign the Red deal or have their videos removed. Certain creators might have other deals in place, intentions to monetize their videos differently, or qualms with the 55% payout that make them not want to sign on to Red. Penalizing them so harshly by removing their content from the top online video platform still seems like bullying.
