Useful Resources To Learn Web Development & To Create Your Website
Starting out with web development? Here are some useful resources
Learning web development is like learning to drive a car. No matter how much you do not enjoy it, learning these skills sometimes can help you a lot and can even act as a great skill to put on your resume.
I needed to create some landing pages, custom logos and mockups.
So I decided to go through all these technologies once again and during that process I found several interesting resources that helped me and will be useful for you as well 😃
I am sure if you're someone who is just starting out (or even if you are at intermediate level), these resources can come pretty handy 🔽
Still during the process, I found these two amazing github repositories to refresh your JS concepts 👇
From basic topics like Call Stack, Primitive types to Message Queue & event loop to concepts like async/await, High Order Funtions and Clean Code conepts, this repo contains everything you need.
It is even considered by GitHub as one of the top open source projects of 2018!
This is for a quick review of basic web security concepts. It covers following topics:
- CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing)
- Cross-site Scripting attack
- CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery)
- Access and Refresh Tokens
Learning CSS 🖥
Honestly, the reason why I don't enjoy web development is because I suck at CSS.
So, the first thing I did this time was to look for online resources to start learning and practicing my CSS skills from scratch.
Here are the 3 courses that turned out to be really helpful 👇

Although for my project, I didn't go back to learn HTML but just for the sake of this blog post, I found this FreeCodeCamp's video on youtube that I feel gives a very nice introduction to learn the basics of HTML5.

- Basic Tags
- Style & Color
- Formatting a Page
- Videos & Youtube iFrames
- Divs & Spans
- Input & Forms
