Reading this Week

Here's some web development articles that I have been reading over the past week.

Development

Design Exercises

I have found that I'm much more inclined to work on my front-end skills if I have some plausible scenarios to work on and/or a specific project, otherwise I get stuck trying to come up with ideas rather than coding. The following are some nice resources for practicing your skills:

  • Frontend Mentor - Definitely my favorite, this site offers a number of challenges and has an active community around it.
  • Brief Box - More design than development oriented, but it offers a bunch of prompts for design exercises, some of which are websites.
  • Symu - This site gives users PSD files of designs for various websites. You can then code the sites from the mocks.
