Here is the Best Skills in Front End Development,
The real world is like a web page on the internet it has a skeleton or structure it can have pretty walls, windows, and tiles. it can have certain functionality for example when we press the elevator button it comes to pick us up.
If you want to build a website like Facebook. first, we use HTML to define all the building blocks of this layout and we use CSS to give it visual effects.
with CSS we can make the font bold, image round, add some padding, change the color of these icons and define their look.
3. FRONT-END FRAMEWORKS
after front-end frameworks and libraries comes with a lot of code that we can reuse on our websites.
They help us get the job done faster that’s why a lot of companies these days use one of these popular frameworks like react,angular or Vue.
But react is not a framework it’s a library. the difference between a framework and a library, we talked about it in our previous article.
you don’t need to learn all of these to get started as you move jobs you may need to learn about the other tools out of these
React is the most popular tool it’s built by Facebook and is used to build Facebook and Instagram.
4. Version Control Systems
Version control systems can track our project history and work collaboratively with others that’s why you will find it in almost every job description.
git is the most popular version control system in the world and is used in 70% of software development teams. just focus on git and don’t worry about other version control systems.
5. CSS preprocessor
CSS is kind of an old language and it has limitations so if you use it on a medium-sized or a large website sooner or later your code starts to get pretty convoluted and becomes hard to maintain.
this is a slow process so this is where CSS preprocessors come to the game.
CSS preprocessor is a program or a tool that lets you generate CSS code from a different language.
that is better and more capable instead of using the plain old CSS.
we give our code to a CSS preprocessor so it gets converted to the plain old CSS code that all browsers can understand that’s the purpose of CSS preprocessors.
there are many preprocessors out there like SASS, LESS, and STYLUS
you don’t have to learn all of them to get a front-end development job. because these are all similar tools that serve the same purpose.
they’re all like burgers manufactured by different shops so as long as you understand the purpose of a CSS preprocessor and know how to use it.
Please spendt three to five hours a day studying and coding you should be able to have a reasonable understanding of the fundamentals in three months.
you’re not going to be an expert but you will understand them well enough to make things next you need to learn a front-end framework or library like react.
you would probably need one or two months to learn to react after that you should learn a version control system like git.
so if you dedicate a few hours a day studying and coding after six months you should be able to apply for a junior front-end developer job.
