RESOURCES

There is no way anyone can know everything about development but you will certainly get better and faster over time. You have the internet at your fingertips so why not use it?

Think of developing as an open book test. You just need to know where to look. I have gathered my resources below in the following categories: General , Design, HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Click on the icon to go right to that resource to check out for yourself.  In you own development and learning I suggest you save useful links as you come across them.  It is as simple as bookmarking in your browser. Send me a message and tell me your favorite resources.

This is a list of general resources that can cover a wide range of topics. Finding some tech buddies can be an amazing resource as well.

Google, if not already, will be your best friend. You can search anything and you learn over time key works that can help your searches. Remember to book mark if you find something that you might want to come back to.

Sometimes it can be easier to understand a topic if someone explains it to you or you can watch a video. YouTube is a great source for just that. You can find viedos anywhere from a couple minutes to over an hour long. Tip- turn up the speed of video if you are looking for something specific in that video. Setting -> Speed -> pick slow to 2x.

Reddit is a discussion website and (among other things) that can be super helpful. There are many different subscriptions you can follow from any topic imaginable. Personally I am subscribe to r/learnjavascript, r/javascript, r/Web_Development and r/userexperience. When I am stuck on a problem and don’t find the answer through google quickly, I’ll jump on reddit and ask a question. Sometimes, if I take the time to describe my question I end up figuring out the answer. Other times I’ll post the question, go back to my Google search and keep an eye out for a someone in the reddit world to give me the answer. It’s magical 🙂

w3schools is a great place to get started. This site is filled with references and tutorials for different web languages and other aspects of programming. They have excellent ‘no frills’ examples that you can test for yourself.

MDN web docs is a open source network of developers who provide the public with documentation on all things coding. These can be a little intimidating and overwhelming to read in the beginning but as you become more familiar with all the lingo you will find this very useful.

Udemy has a huge selection of online course that you can purchase. Usually you can find a course ‘on-sale’ for about $12.00. Also you can watch a preview and check out the reviews before purchase. Another plus is you can download them so you can watch/listen from anywhere.

Design Resources

Personally I am not a designer although I wish I had those artistic skills. With that being said there are some basic design principles you can pick up or look at all things online and start to notice the little things like use of space, color, typography and images.
