The frontend development field is constantly changing and advancing in your career is becoming more and more difficult.

For one, the sheer amount of people in the industry has gone up drastically. AND, not to mention, what it actually means to be a frontend developer worthy of a tech job is getting more and more complicated.

So, the question becomes, “How do you establish yourself as a frontend web developer? AND THEN, “How do you grow in your career?”

Chris Coyier from CSS Tricks

Those are exactly the questions I discuss with Chris Coyier from CSS Tricks.

Chris’ blog and how-to guides were AND STILL ARE a lifeline for me as a frontend developer.

Typically, if I have a question or can’t figure something out regarding HTML or CSS, CSS Tricks is the FIRST place I go to. In fact, I have guides from CSS Tricks bookmarked on my bookmarks bar and I reference them all the time.

The Future of Frontend Development Careers

The good news about frontend development careers is that you can still stand out without having to have a Ph.D. and work 80 hours a week.

Doing things like writing a good email and just straight up loving what you do can be the difference between you getting the job or not.

Sure, things aren’t as simple as they used to be. But, a lot of the same principles are still there.

And, despite an increased amount of competition, you can still get a good frontend web development position no matter what level you’re at.

Mr. Chris Coyier is here to show you how.
