Youtube is a great resource for learning Web3 development. The creators listed below might vary in their depth of knowledge, the type of content they post, and the size of their audience, but they all provide great tutorials and information specifically geared to the Web3 developer community.  

Their Youtube channels will overpower you with information and level up your Web3 developer skills no matter where you’re at in your development journey. Let’s check them out. 

Eat The Blocks provides many informative resources for the aspiring Web3/blockchain developer. They offer videos covering Solidity smart contracts, decentralized applications, DeFi development, and NFT development. 

The videos tend to be brief topical introductions under five minutes, but Eat the Blocks also makes videos commenting on the recruiting process, lifestyle, and compensation of Web3 developers.

Hashlips NFT regularly uploads in-depth technical tutorials on blockchain technology with a focus on project-specific tutorials (many of which center around programming specific to the NFT art market). The channel is great for new devs because it provides a lot of video content focusing on common questions those new to Web3 have. 

Recently Hashlips is featuring more collaborative content with other YouTubers in the Web3 space, helping his audience familiarize themselves with discussions occurring around the broader Web3 community.

Nadir Dabit provides an in-depth collection of Web 3 tutorials, live coding demos, and interviews surrounding modern web development, Web3, DeFi, cloud computing, and GraphQL.
