I often think about the technologies I’ve learned over the past 8 years as a Front-End Developer and wonder what it must be like for someone coming into this field. I think the best answer is to take it one tool at a time.
This article is a great comprehensive list of what should be learned as a web developer.
One part I had a little issue with was the section on Development Frameworks (i.e. Bootstrap). He isn’t wrong in saying that you should know how to use these, but I would add a caveat that these frameworks aren’t the silver bullet for every project. Just because you need, say a grid system, doesn’t mean you have to start with all of Bootstrap.
Overall, a great read!
More great links for this week. I’m off to WordCamp Atlanta 2015 today! If you happen to be going, let’s meet up! Hit me up on Twitter.
I just subscribed to a handful of performance blogs today, so there will be a bit of an influx on performance this week. Cheers!
