A friend recently asked for a list of front-end web development resources. Instead of emailing him a list, I figured I’d write a blog post so others could possibly benefit from it.
A Note on the Term Web Development
The term “web development” is an umbrella term that is often used to describe a wide range of technologies that go into the design and development of a web site.
Wikipedia defines web development as,
Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet or an intranet. Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, and social network services.
An analogy: “I am a web developer” can be compared to saying “I work for Walmart”.
When you first hear “I work for Walmart”, you probably think of a cashier or greeter. However, with a corporation as large as Walmart, there are thousands of different positions. Do you work at a corporate office? If so, are you in the HR department, finance department, customer relations department, sales department, or in Walmart’s IT department? Are you swimming at the C-level or are you an intern?
