As a front-end developer, I know how important it is to continuously improve my skills and stay up to date with the latest technologies. One of the best ways to do this is by practicing my skills online. In this blog post, I want to share with you some of my favorite places online to practice front-end development.
First on my list is FreeCodeCamp. This website offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes interactive coding challenges, projects, and articles to help you learn front-end development. I love that it’s completely free and offers a wide range of topics to learn from.
Next, I want to mention Codecademy. This website has a range of interactive coding tutorials and projects to help you learn front-end development. They also have a Pro version which includes quizzes, interactive coding challenges, and a personalized learning plan. It’s a great place to start learning and get hands-on experience.
Codewars is a gamified learning platform that offers interactive coding challenges and katas to help you improve your front-end development skills. It’s a great way to put your skills to the test and challenge yourself.
CodePen is a social development environment that allows you to build, deploy, and share front-end development projects with others. It’s a great place to showcase your work and get feedback from other developers.
Flexbox Froggy is a game that helps you learn flexbox layout in a fun and interactive way. Yes, I know it looks like a kiddie game, but if you’re having a hard time wrapping your head around what all Flexbox can do, this will definitely help you understand. Having a hard time with Grid as well? Check out CSSGridGarden.
And my favorite of all…CSS Battle! CSS Battle is a website that allows users to showcase their CSS skills by recreating a specific image or design using only CSS. Users can submit their own solutions, view and vote on other submissions, and see how their own submission ranks against others. The website provides a set of guidelines, rules, and tips for creating the best possible solution. It’s a fun and creative way to practice your CSS skills, learn from other developers, and showcase your work to the community. With different difficulty levels, it’s a great platform for beginners and advanced developers alike.
These are just a few of the many resources available for learning front-end development and showing off what you got. It’s important to find the ones that work best for you, and to keep practicing and building projects to solidify your skills. These sites worked for me and I still have fun submitting projects and battling other developers. Keep on coding every day!
