Launched in 1998, W3Schools is a website offering courses for learning how to write code and programs for web pages and online applications using various web-based programming languages. W3Schools includes tutorials with code examples to help users learn how a programming language works, its features and functions, and how its used. Users can also modify example code in the tutorials to dive deeper and better understand the functionality.

Many programming language tutorials are available on W3Schools, including the following.

W3Schools also offers tutorials on programming-related topics, like AI (artificial intelligence), cyber security, data analytics, machine learning, web development, and web certificates. Most tutorials are available to users for free, but ads are displayed during them. To eliminate ads, users can subscribe to the W3Schools PRO server for $4.99 per month. PRO subscribers can also access a video course for HTML programming, and can create a website and host it on W3Schools servers.

For users wanting to go a step further, W3Schools offers certification courses. Users can get certified in multiple programming languages, including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, and PHP, for a fee ranging from $20 to $695.
