The teaching content provided by freeCodeCamp tends to act more as an introduction than a solid learning resource. Unless you already have some prior experience, you won't have enough knowledge to get through the coding challenges and development projects without using outside learning resources to fill in the gaps.

freeCodeCamp strongly encourages interacting with other learners and experienced programmers. They provide chatrooms which are always active and full of members happy to answer any questions you may have. Pair programming (programming with another user) is encouraged as a great way to work through some of their coding challenges. There are also meetup groups where you can code in person with other freeCodeCamp students. See More
Once you've completed all the courses and practice levels on freeCodeCamp, you are able to participate with other learners on developing software for non-profits. It's an amazing way to gain experience and build your portfolio as a developer, while helping out a non-profit organization. See More
All posts, whether they are written by Chris Coyier or a guest blogger, are very clear and well explained. Each example has code snippets with easy-to-follow explanations of the code and theory behind the specific concept. Possible issues you may run into with the code are often addressed, so you know how to tackle bugs that may pop up. See More
CSS-Tricks does not follow the structure of a traditional tutorial, starting at the basics and gradually increasing in difficulty. Instead, each blog post addresses a specific topic (such as responsive images, debugging keyframe animations etc.). Therefore it's better suited to someone who has already been introduced to CSS and is looking for more info on a specific topic, or wants to discover new concepts. See More
After each video, there are a series of challenges that give you a chance to apply what you just learned. The great thing about these challenges are that they force you to think through a problem, and use the new skills to solve it. It's not just regurgitating facts; it requires some effort. See More
While many learning resources offer a mixture of media in their courses (such as videos, challenges etc.), w3schools offers only written tutorials and code editors. This makes w3schools more beneficial as a quick reference rather than a primary learning resource. See More
