5 Things Every Front-end Developer Should Learn Before 2018
December 21st, 2017
As 2017 ends with a great note for front-end developers and 2018 is on the way, a promising developer goal will be to learn the latest technologies that will show up and be of use in the New Year.
However, it is never late to revisit certain areas in front-end development to better explore what 2018 holds for you professionally.
So, slow down a little bit, consume more time and brush up some crucial skills that will have a tremendous effect on your quality of work.
Here are top 5 tips that you should consider before the clock ticks 12 on 31st.
1. Making code more readable
Writing a code might not consume so much of your time but maintaining the code does. So, learn to make the code readable. For this purpose, preparing flow diagrams will come in handy as you can focus on the logic before you start coding. Also, jotting down the complex functionalities beforehand will help you in making the code cleaner.
2. Learning the basics of graphic designing
Front-end developers have a more closer touch with the users as compared to graphic designers and still graphic designing has always been a shady arena for front-end developers. This is why you need to go back to the basics.
One of the quickest ways to learn design is to pick the brains of experts. Before we enter 2018, make sure you sit down with one heck of a designer and learn how to create the magic on screen.
3. Learn to make human interactions
You know what kills productivity of a programmer? It has to be sitting in front of the computer screen all day long with any human interaction. Let’s face it- you need people to be around. People who talk to you and discuss code. Sharing experiences matters and developing some basic soft skills with your co-workers before New Year strikes should be on your priority list.
4. Learn Functional Programming
Many front-end developers face issues while handling functions which leads to a messy code structure.
Let’s make it a rule to be better and nail every problem with the right logistical and out-thinking solution.
