Hello buddy 👋, do you know of a website where 99.99% of developers visit to learn how to code, and which they still refer to when they finally got a job?
This website I am talking about is a time and energy-saver for every Junior and Senior developer looking for programming knowledge.
So what's this website I am talking about?
If you're a developer, you should already know the website I am talking about and if you do not know, get ready as I am about to tell you.
It's the W3Schools 🏆.
Yes, w3schools.com is the website I am talking about, they provide resources and educational contents that are capable of guiding anyone with zero coding knowledge into an employable software developer.
W3Schools is an online free coding school created in 1998 by Refsnes Data with the goal of simplifying and making the experience of learning how to code a lot easier for anyone, everywhere.

2. Get code reference
If you usually forget the basic syntax of the programming language that you use? It is fine 🤗; I do too, w3school probably realized this and provides an easy reference to all the coding concepts you may need for your day-to-day coding activities.
Below is a screenshot of the programming references offered by W3Schools 👇
3. Get practical with exercises
Get your hands dirty with a variety of exercises (with answers) compiled by w3schools for each of the programming tutorials, you can try to solve an exercise by editing some code, get a "hint" if you're stuck, or view the answer to see what you've done wrong. Isn't this super cool 😎, you can check it out here?

4. Validate your coding skills with Quizzes
you can sharpen your coding skills with w3schools' quizzes, each quiz contains 25-40 questions, and you get 1 point score for each correct answer, and at the end of each quiz, you get your quiz result. The correct answers are displayed at the end of the quiz.

6. Get Certified
What good is a school without a certificate?🤷♀️ w3schools will present you with a certificate of completion after you've completed any of their courses, which you can add to your portfolio and highlight on your resume for job hunting.
7. Watch Videos Instead
W3School just released an additional feature on their platform which is the tutorial videos, when you purchase the video course you will get lifetime access to the course so that you can go back and rematch specific parts whenever you need to.

8. Get Free Templates
Do you need a quick layout for your project or a coming soon page? Don't worry W3Schools got that covered, with their W3.CSS framework responsive templates, you are free to modify, save, share, and use them for your projects.
W3.CSS is Smaller, Faster, and Easier to Use, it is a Quality Alternative to Bootstrap
9. Host your website on w3schools Spaces
Here is my favorite: W3Schools space is a feature that allows you to build your website using their online code editor with live preview and finally you get to host your website with your custom domain without leaving w3schools, I have written 10 reasons you should try out w3schools spaces and a tutorial on how you can host your sites on w3school spaces.
