4 Best Front-end Development Blogs You Should Follow

The web is changing rapidly and constantly. If you are a Front-end developer, you probably know that you should keep up to date (hope so!) and stay close to new tools, trends, and workflows. Every important thing you can find on the Internet. But watch out, it is full of garbages! What are the best blogs about Front-end technology?

Hundreds of posts and articles are published every day. It’s a mess and you will go crazy! Reading them all is impossible. Actually, no all of them are worth to read. This is the reason why I’ve asked Merixstudio’s folks for pointing out the best tech blogs about front-end development that are worth reading and following, and we’ve put together the best sources of news and trends in the web development world.

I’ve already published the piece about most influential blogs focused on technology and web development in general. This time I’ll dwell on cool front-end sources (the order of the websites is random).

Speckyboy

It calls itself a design magazine, but Paul Andrew — the founder of Speckyboy — not only focuses on design resources but also provides useful insights on the latest web technologies. The blog is definitely a great source for staying up-to-day also for Front-end Developers — it offers top-notch posts, tutorials, resources and inspirational content from around the world.

CSS-Tricks

If you want to improve your web design and web development arsenal, you have to follow CSS-Tricks run by Internet guru, Chris Coyier. It’s a storehouse of web development treasures that will surely upscale the way you present web content. CSS-Tricks mostly focuses on CSS-related topics. The blog provides code snippets, leading-edge articles, videos, training courses, podcasts, and much more.

Codrops

Codrops can be called one of the newest and fastest growing tutorial sites in the tech industry. Every Front-end Developer and Web Designer can find a lot of useful tutorials and code snippets on codrops. It also covers more general topics of web development and web design. It’s run by only two passionate designers — Manoela Ilic and Pedro Botelho. You can be sure that each tutorial is beautifully designed. It’s worth to visit this blog to keep learning new hacks and trends.

Todd Motto’s blog

Todd is a Developer Advocate at Telerik. Founder of Ultimate Angular, and also a Developer Expert at Google, conference speaker and open source lover. He is writing quite a bit on Angular and JavaScript in general. His opinionated AngularJS style guide for teams gained a great popularity on Reddit and Hacker News. Especially, if you’re interested in topics such as Angular and JavaScript, it is a perfect place for you!

It’s crucial that you find your own, unique way to be up to date. So read books, magazines, follow people who produce new trends on Twitter, watch videos, attend conferences, speak to others, and create!
