Essential Skills Needed to be A Good Front End Developer

Ever thought of why a particular app or website has the same colour code or the same font and why the font never for once changes throughout the website unless of course if it is meant to? This is exactly what a Front-End Developer does. A front-end developer is responsible for making the user feel a lot more comfortable and easier while using a particular website or application. He needs to enhance a user's experience by making the website easy to use. A front-end developer is responsible for the look and feel of the website.

There are a lot of skills that are needed in a good front end developer. Let's have a look at them:

1. HTML and CSS

HTML which is an abbreviation for Hypertext Mark-up Language is the most basic part of coding without which one cannot put up anything on a website. How would you write content that is understood by the websites? By using HTML. HTML makes the pages useful and functional.

CSS, an abbreviation for Cascading Style Sheets helps in making your webpages all the more beautiful by adding appropriate and attractive fonts, colours, spacing to web pages.

2. JavaScript and jQuery

While HTML gives your website the content that it needs, it is very important to also have things on your website that will attract the audience and instil some life into the web page. The best example of where JavaScript is used that will for sure ring a bell in your head is- have you ever noticed the countdown clocks on some websites? That is done using JavaScript.

Now, JavaScript needs a few plugins and extensions to be functional on a website. The place where these plugins and extensions are stored is the jQuery. jQuery makes work simpler by compressing two or more JavaScript codes into a format that can be implemented with a single code.

3. Frameworks

JavaScript frameworks provide a common and functional format to execute your JavaScript code. These frameworks save you time and save you from the hassle of starting everything from the beginning. The most commonly used JavaScript frameworks are- Angular, Backbone, Ember, Vue, Node and React.

4. Responsive Designs

Responsive design is the ability of the same website and web pages to work on different gadgets. For example- Most of us use Facebook either on a computer screen or on a smartphone or even a tab.

Does Facebook look and feel the same across all three devices? No. Have you wondered why? This is because it is the job of a front-end developer to understand how and what to put on a mobile site and on a computer version of the same site. This is known as Responsive Design.

5. Version Control

Remember how while writing a document on MS Word, the app keeps updating whatever you have written so that just in case if your computer shuts down, you shouldn't lose all the data that you have written. Version control does the same in coding. It updates and saves all the changes that you may have made to a file so that in case the system crashes, you already have a backup!

6. Testing/Debugging

Like how you need to review what you write, in the same way, once you have finished coding, you need to test the program and make it free of any kind of bugs. This will be of great help to you and once testing and debugging are carried out, you won't need to worry about your code later on!
