Complete Web Developer Roadmap 2022 – How to become a Front-End Web Developer

Web Development

Are you a beginner and trying to learn Web-Development. And more interested in the front-end part of it and you are looking forward to have an absolute guided path or a roadmap so that you can learn web development. Let me give it to you in a very easiest and cleanest manner. If you are thinking about learning web developemnt (basically front-end in this article) then you have come to the right place. We’ll discuss the ways to become a successfull front end developer in 2022.

Web developers are always in demand. There are tons of oppurtunities available worldwide for web developers and the salary is also very high.

I will also provide some resources to learn web development in the end. So make sure you read it to the end.

Let’s first understand what is a web developer is responsible for?

Web Developers are responsible for creating and managing websites. When a developer do his job well then the webisite just seems fine. Everything, from appearance to performance of the website works great.

There are mainly three types of web developers – Front-End Developer, Back-End Developer and Full-Stack Developer.

As today, In this article we are only going to talk about the roadmap for front-end web developer. Other two roles will be covered in the next articles.

Front-End Web Developer Role :

A front-end web developer is responsible for implementing the client side part of the website. That means the UI which a user can see. It includes visual elements of the website.

Front-End developers are supported by back-end deveopers who write code for servier-side application logic and integration of the work front-end developers do.

HTML, CSS and JavaScript and that’s it. That is your front end development. These are the must and basic technologies for front-end development. It is a must for every developer to have basic understanding of these technologies.

How to get started WITH FRONT END WEB DEV?

Step 1 – HTML :

Let’s start with not everybody’s favourite, which is HTML. Now I understand the context of HTML. Everybody knows it, but nobody knows that this is the reality of HTML. You know enough that you can figure out what this tag is going to do, but sometimes beginners face really challenging situation.

But the ultimate reality is that the page is going to be no matter what is going to be build with HTML. And this is exactly the point when you have to do something, but you don’t want to do something. This is where exactly more to come to the front-end development. See when you build a web application, let just see that the product on the web page. Somebody needs to actually write HTML for the product. Surely we have programming languages which helps us to give loops, conditionals so that we can either conditionally replace those products, buy something else, or maybe can you repeat that product probably a hundred times with different values.

But this is all a little bit of advance side, we don’t want to go there.  First, we want to capture the front end  part of it, but something you must really understand that no matter what happens, somebody needs to write HTML for those buttons for those images and something else, Now there’s something else can be buttons, unlisted elements, listing elements of a bunch of other things, So, in order to make sure that you write faster HTML Emmet come into the picture, which gives you a lot of shortcuts so that you don’t really feel tired to write the HTML.

Step 2 – CSS :

Moving on to our second part of the front-end development with CSS and this is what I put a lot of us now it’s not just about structuring the page, it should look also decently beautiful, and that’s where CSS comes into picture, but writing the CSS with position, absolute position relative and providing all the element to be arranging at the exact place where I want is not the easiest task of all, and hence since again the picture comes in, we want to do something but we really want to it thaat’s exactly the same thing comes in.

Now, writing CSS you can absolutely write that you don’t need to use any tools or libraries or framework anything at all. You can use plain vanilla CSS to write everything, but since we don’t want to and that’s where the are the new libraries and frameworks of CSS comes in to picture. Now these libraries or CSS framework help you actually arrange things nicely and beautiful. Some provides really powerful grids so that you can arrange web pages into easiest formats and even gives you more things to make things beautiful lie buttons and navigation bar.

Trust me there’s no shortage of these CSS frameworks. Some people loved ones, some people love othe. Bootstrap, Material CSS, MD Bootstrap, Tailwind CSS and there’s so much of them. It’s my personal recommendation is that go ahead and get started with bootstrap and eventually explorer other frameworks. But one thing is for sure, that these are just helper libraries/frameworks to use. You can absolutely avoid them if you want to. And also the reason why I am recommending to get started with Bootstrap because it gives you the ultimate knowledge and the sense of how things should be arranged on the web page. Once you understand the Bootstrap,  Material CSS, or Tailwind is relatively easier, but it’s not true for everyone.

Step 3 – Javascript :

Then finally moving into the third part of the front end Development guide is JavaScript. JavaScript is really one of the most powerful and proving to be more powerful than we expected it to be.  Now the question is can you build everything in the Vanilla JavaScript? Absolutely, yes there is no, no one which is stopping you to do so. JavaScript can actually make server calls, bring up some JSON data and then you can actually place this JSON data nicely and there is nothing that is stopping you. Writing of application which is covered entirely by the JavaScript without imposing on the rules that what you should do? What you should not do, can become an absolute nightmare, add more team members to this, and this actually gets out of that pretty quickly and pretty easily. And this is exactly where some of the rules are imposed on that our team for that our project that hey, if you are going to change this object in JavaScript, this isway going to do it. If you need some conditionals, this is how you are going to do it.

A lot of libraries and framework in JavaScript into the picture. But one thing you need to absolutely understand that the final output of these all things,  React, Angular whatever you are learning is HTML, CSS and Javascript . So ultimately your code is compiled into these three things only. So the more you are going to understand the JavaScript more easily, its going to be easier for you to switch between React, Angular or Vue. In order to make sure that your application follow the standard practices and these same practices have been followed by your team members,  we pick up some other frameworks for the libraries and famous ones are React, Angular Vue and there’s a lot more other than that. A lot of companies are using even those frameworks as well.

Bonus Tips :

  1. It doesn’t take a lot of time to learn HTML and CSS. You can dedicate a month to learn HTML CSS and thereby one more month to learn Javascript.
  2. Also learn to make websites responsive. See how they look on different devices.
  3. Note that you don’t have to master everything while learing HTML CSS. Just understand the basics and the rest you will learn in the process.
