At the beginning of my journey with WayMaker Digital, I wasn’t familiar with front end development. Being informed of our tech-stack of choice to build a Web app prototype, I realised I would have to develop my skills in Front End development.
HTML and CSS
A large amount of front-end development is built on top of HTML and CSS. It is the bread-and-Butter of Web development.
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language, and it is the language that is used to define the structure of a web page. It has different classes, attributes, and elements with different properties.
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets, and it is used to style web documents. Such as providing background colours, size changes and font. Any alterations you want to make to your web page can be handled by CSS.
With the Three Pillars of web development, I was able to make small projects such as a stopwatch and a colour guessing game.
Reacts arguably biggest positive is its component-based architecture and modular structure.
This allows for faster development; team members can work on different components and not worry about collaboration-based complications. It also allows you to produce independent and reusable bits of code. Saving development costs and simpler maintenance.
Through this, we were able to build out our web app prototype.
