The world of Front End Development is ever changing in new and exciting ways and it makes living the developer life so bitter sweet. But I have learned a few things along the way that I would like to share in hopes of saving someone else time and effort.

  1. Frameworks come and go, your foundation is forever

I can 100% assure you that there will always be a new framework to choose from. Whether that be a CSS or JavaScript, most wont stick around longer than a few years. …


Scoping in JavaScript can be a little tricky when you’re first starting out and can cause quit the headache. It doesn’t help that there are so many different kinds of scope as well. You have Block scope, Function scope, Module scope, Global scope, Lexical scope and so on. But I’m going to tell you something, the concept of scope is kind of simple. After getting a better understanding, I started to noticed something, and that was what happens between the brackets, stays between the brackets. It had clicked for me.

Being able to generally wrap your head around the concept…


Javascript filter() function is one of my favorite array functions and can be very useful in many cases. But it can be tricky to get the hang of at first and to get over the that bump in the road you need to understand 2 things about filter().

Let’s be honest, keeping up with or learning Front End Development can be tough sometimes. But, with a constant and growing list of resources, you can find plenty of help and have fun along the way! I started my journey almost 3 years ago and used many free resources from blogs to practice sites along the way and see it as only fair that I give back to the community. As you should too when you feel ready in your own journey!

Below I will share with you resources that can help make yourself a better developer for those thirsty…
