The best YouTube channels for designers and developers
YouTube is slowly becoming the new TV – and people are relying more and more on it to get updates on the topics they care about. Here are some popular design and tech channels for you to follow.
I just recently realized how much time I spend on YouTube everyday. To be more precise, about 50 minutes every single day. About three years ago I started developing the habit of opening the YouTube Subscriptions page every day to check out new videos from the channels I had subscribed to.
More recently, I decided to subscribe to channels related to design and technology as well, and I’m surprised by how everyday there’s at least one good video worth watching.
Take a look at the channels below and pick a few if you want to get started on that habit. Some of them post new videos quite often; others are just worth visiting to browse through the archive.
