If you are considering watching these tutorials, I would HIGHLY recommend them, Shaun keeps the tutorials short, to the point and clearly explained.

After watching your free videos here on youtube I started learning from Udemy and OMG...It's so good

As already mentioned several times, but worth repeating, he is not just knowledgeable, but is also an excellent teacher.

The Net Ninja 164 Youtube channel is the best channel to learn Web Development. You can start learning from totally no idea about coding to an intermediate to advanced depending on your willingness to listen and follow the discussion.

Thanks to The Net Ninja I managed to learn html, css, node js, mongo, and react. The videos are great because they give you a basic understanding of the technology you are learning and then show how to build something using it.

Really accessable, knowledgeable, and very little of the annoying self-promotion that one sees on some channels.
