The Latest Front-End Tips and Trends of 2018

For you to make it in tech, you need to stay on top of emerging trends in web development. So, does that make web development challenging? Not at all.

In front-end development, there’s only a handful of things that you need to keep in check. Mainly about HTML, CSS and JavaScript (JS). The rest is simple Рkeep up with the flow.

Here is a short list of things that regularly shift in front-end development.

HTML/CSS

Just like the great pairs in history (Romeo and Juliet, Peanut butter & Jelly), HTML needs CSS. Though they never seem to change much, CSS seems to be exiting the scene in phases. It may sound ambitious, but Bootstrap is having a field day when it comes to styling web pages compared to CSS. However, HTML seems to remain pretty much the same.

JavaScript

What would websites be without JS? Probably, the internet could seem like an empty hallway. This web scripting language seems to get simpler by the day. With all the frameworks (JQuery, Angular, etc.) coming up, most people are looking forward to the days where anybody can tweak their website during the weekend. They are meant to make the code less bulky by using only one line of code to represent several operations.

Testing and debugging

Bugs are real in web development; they are still the number one reason for insomnia in developers. Fortunately, some creative developers made giant moves to help eliminate bugs from code almost hands-free. The traditional methods are still intact and useful, but now Mocha and Jasmine are some of the tools that make the debugging process seem effortless.

Soft skills

Though this may seem unnecessary, soft skills can make or break your career in web development. You need to know and keep up with trends on how to handle clients and bosses.
