I've watched Bro code on YouTube for learning html and CSS and I enjoyed his explaining, teaching and such. After i completed his YouTube course I went onto numerous different sources to learn more. I found that he teached me most of the stuff that I found afterwards. When I was happy with my html and CSS skill to the point I can write some simple web page with the help of a few searches I decided to move onto js. I was looking to find what are some good places to learn and I found a ton of people talking about some net ninja so I checked him out. I am currently around episode 10 and I have grown to like his way of explaining and teaching. I haven't tried bro code's cource for js so idk if it's any better. That's why I am looking for help from you, have any opinions maybe watched both? Please let me know🙌

Any YouTube channel is insufficient. You need to practice.

I just need to first learn the basics thars all. I can't practice out of nothing, but thank you for your take. It's the same as math you first learn the principles. After you learnt them than you can practice!

I'd suggest App Academy Open or The Odin Project to get both instruction on the basics and practice projects to work through.

I used Scrimba back when they were first starting up to learn React. They aren’t actually videos - they’re recording the state of the editor, so they can say “try to do x” and you can pause and do it right there on the page without having to set anything up yourself. You can also pause anywhere and mess around with whatever the tutorial is doing.

A lot of their stuff is paid now, but it looks like they have a couple of free intro courses on HTML and CSS. I haven’t watched either of those, but I do watch Kevin Powell on YouTube and his videos there are fantastic.

Kevin Powell has quality front end material. Jack Herrington has quality general and backend material for JavaScript and Typescript.

Hi, here is my humble personal take. I just find and watch any tutorials that I need. At the end of the day, my lessons are mostly learnt by doing my own projects. You are going to like what you like anyway, if you like a certain tutor you will find out eventually. I personally like tutors who teach me what others do not, and these tutors are not big, they just upload a video or two every now and then. I search by most recent, or specific terms. Most mainstream ones like you have mentioned only teach surface stuff, not all every video, but yea, you get what I mean.

I know, I know. I am just looking for the surface level for now. I only started recently. I an not ready for more till i learn the basics. Thank you for replying!
