Data science is possibly the most dynamic field today, constantly evolving and innovating, and programming languages are at the centre of this growth. Python and JavaScript have dominated the programming space for a long, but today we also have C#, Kotlin, R, PHP, and more. While this offers great opportunities to developers and programmers, it also demands them to stay updated with the latest languages, coding skills and new frameworks. YouTube is one of the best resources to update and skill yourself regularly, and several channels today are doing an excellent job balancing traditional languages with modern introductions. Analytics India Magazine has listed out some of the best YouTube channels to follow to learn to program today.
