Whether you are looking to start learning web development for fun or for the higher-than-average age salary, guaranteed job security and often flexible schedules there are plenty of reasons to learn web development. Or maybe you’ve already started on your web development career and you’re interested in learning some new skills.
Below are who we consider to be the top 5 providers of web development courses online.
Udemy is a great source for online courses to learn pretty much anything you could ever want to know. This means that there is plenty to look at when it comes to web design courses.
As there are so many to choose from prices vary but most courses seem to start at around £200 and can be anywhere up to £2000 with varying course durations.
Before you choose which course you are going to invest both time and money into taking make sure that the course contents includes everything that you are looking to learn and that the reviews for the course are good.
Another great thing about Codecademy is that the content is constantly updated meaning you can learn pretty much every aspect of web development.
Skillshare is similar to Udemy but instead of paying for each cost it is a set price per month to have access to the sites content. A great thing about Skillshare is that the courses are done by professionals in that field which makes them very in-depth and very good at learning everything from the basics to professional level development.
Skillshare has plenty of web design courses and as paying the £15 per month gives you access to all of them it means you can take as many or as few as you want.
All courses and certifications are completed online and are completely self paced meaning that even with work and life commitments you can still learn around that.
There are also loads of tutorials from basic HTML to server-side languages such as SQL.
If you are looking to just learn web development without getting a final qualification then w3schools is free but if you want to get a certificate at the end to prove your web development knowledge then that costs £95 per certificate.
Free code camp
Free Code Camp offers a full stack web development course that is split up into six smaller certificates. Completing all six courses entitles you to their Full Stack Development Certification.
FreeCodeCamp is free and lasts nearly 3 months.
Throughout all six web developer certification courses, you’ll learn everything you need to know about front-end and back-end development which will get you to the point where you can start making your own websites.
If you are just looking into web development as a possible career choice then it’s probably best that you use free courses and possibly YouTube along with some practice on your own to see if it is something you wish to pursue in the future.
The course you choose needs to be right for you, there is no point spending thousands on a course that you will get bored off in a few weeks or days. You could use free trials of Skillshare to get some insight into what the courses consist of.
