YouTube is, without a doubt, the most popular video platform available today. YouTube’s easy-to-use interface and abundance of content are one of the many reasons it has grown in popularity over the years. Since YouTube has it all from hours of unboxing videos or countless beauty tutorials, product reviews, gaming channels or learning tutorials on how to code, there is bound to be a channel that piques your interest among the millions of YouTube channels available. With video taking over the internet, it’s safe to claim that there’s something for everyone on this platform.
According to recent YouTube statistics, 73 per cent of US adults use YouTube, which is higher than Facebook (69 per cent) and Instagram (37 per cent). Furthermore, after its parent company, Google, YouTube is the second-largest and most used search engine. With over 2 billion monthly active users, YouTube is a powerful tool for brands and content creators looking to establish an online presence and increase their reach and exposure. Besides that, 5 billion videos are streamed on the site every day and every 60 seconds, more than 300 hours of HD video are uploaded to YouTube, expanding its already massive video collection even further. 
With changing learning dynamics, YouTube is now not only the supreme ruler of digital entertainment but  also an excellent learning environment. It opens up a world of learning that we might not have had access to, whether it’s supplemental schooling, professional and everyday skills or even how-to tutorials and life hacks. According to Pew Research Centre research, ‘how-to’ videos attract 51 per cent of all US-based YouTube users. Similarly, 57 per cent of millennials in New Zealand use YouTube to ‘access knowledge and learn new career skills’.
Nowadays, if you come across something you haven’t done before or need to brush up on some skills, there is always a YouTube tutorial for it. With the current high demand for courses in popular programming languages such as Python, R, C++ and others. Many techies worldwide are turning to YouTube video lessons to help them learn their preferred programming language. The sheer breadth of subjects covered on YouTube and the fact that the knowledge is free and easily accessible keep viewers returning. 
The appeal is evident when compared to the time and cost of traditional, in-person training options. While there are numerous other resources for learning these programming languages, such as blogs and ebooks, YouTube remains the go-to platform for techies. In addition, working professionals and recent graduates who are new to this field may find it difficult to learn certain programming languages without practical demonstration; using YouTube as a virtual library that you can revisit again and again can help you learn concepts more effectively. Techies use the platform to crack interview questions and discuss the market, developer wages, trending languages and so on. 
YouTube, once thought to be only a source of entertainment, has now evolved into a massive source of educational and informative content. Today, several channels on the platform do an excellent job of balancing traditional languages with modern introductions, making it one of the best resources for regularly updating and skilling yourself.
