Today I’ve got another portion of Medium posts about web design and web development which I enjoyed the most throughout this week and which, I hope, you’ll also find useful. Please, enjoy!
A few years ago, I was bouncing back and forth between landscaping jobs and restaurant jobs. I had just left college, and didn’t know what I was going to do with my life.
[…] I had a lot of ideas, but no direction. During that time, I started teaching myself programming. At first it was a hobby. I thought it was cool to be able to build things using nothing but my brain and some code.
[…] Then I started thinking that I could teach myself web development well enough to get an internship.
[…]So I got serious about web development.
Recently, I’ve been receiving similar questions from a lot of people:
- How can I get more into UI/UX?
- I’m a programmer/marketing manager/social media strategist and I want to know more about design. Where do I start?
- How do you know what is good design and bad design?
- What does it take to become a designer?
In this post Nicole points out tips and resources to help you get started.

Today I’ve got a collection of templates which are totally free and have amazing features like flat design, responsive layout, jQuery sliders etc. Though they are free it doesn’t mean that they are any worse as you can see most of them look like premium ones. Please, enjoy!
These charts were created by GitHub user Kamranahmedse. They visualize three roadmaps to becoming a web developer.
Even though I disagree with some of his suggestions (I recommend you starting building projects almost immediately — and you will with freeCodeCamp’s curriculum), I still think this is worth reading. It will give you a birds-eye view of the modern tools that web developers use.
It would be fair to say that typography is the hardest part of the UI Design. It is with us for a very long time in various forms. Thanks to that we have a lot of rules, practices and theories for whom hard to keep up. In this article I will give you few practical tips and tricks that you can use in your projects.
Have a nice day!
