I've only tried udemy and Udacity. I'll never try udemy again. Udacity so far is good.
What is wrong with freecodecamp?

Agred21232yWhat's wrong with Udemy? I haven't really tried anything else but also never have I seen a necessity to do so.
I'm currently doing a pretty nice course on udemy. Thing with udemy is, imho, that it somewhat lacks quality control. So you gotta be very selective on what you pick.
Edit: Laracast for Laravel, as well as vueschools and vuemastery for vueJS have good quality courses too. They're not free, but worth the money I think.

But I don't get if you hate the platform or the courses. If it's the courses, you must do the quality control - watch the sample of the class, check bio of the teacher. If you won't like even his voice or the accent will make it difficult to understand you'll suffer through the whole course.
Also it depends on the focus of the course. Example would by Coursera Python courses. While the Rice University goes deep with practical exercises, Michigan Uni on the same topics goes wide and covers a lot but not in detail.
Of course with platforms like Udemy avoid buying courses, which are not discounted. They're most of the time; haven't encountered any which would justify full price so far.
AVOID EDUCBA and similar. Or not if you like somebody teaching you how to install Notepad++ and Python in 20 min video.
There are good and bad courses on all these plattforms.
Its like saying youtube is bad even though it does have thousands of useful videos
