When you start to code, you’ll quite quickly discover that much of the free material on YouTube is rather dry. There are some exceptions, of course. Perhaps one of the best examples of these is Coding Rainbow, by NYU lecturer Daniel Shiffman.
As the name suggests, it’s more than a little bit inspired by LeVar Burton’s Reading Rainbow, which ran from 1983 to 2006, and introduced millions to the love of literature.
Shiffman’s heavy use of green screen makes it easy to follow his lessons, and he has the best presentation style of any coding tutor I’ve ever stumbled across.
You can check out his channel here. Subscribe, and you won’t miss any future lessons. Shiffman also posts the source code to each lesson on Github, which you can download here.
