While learning the skills you need for web design or web development is the first step toward working on the web, it also involves acquainting yourself with the tools of the trade.
Here’s a list of nine online tools you can add to your virtual toolbox that you’ll need for either web development, web design, or both.
Color Hunt is an open collection of color palettes. This tool serves thousands of aesthetic color schemes along with their color codes. It is a great tool to find color inspirations and the perfect palette for your projects.

A lot goes into making good software, but even more goes into being a good software developer. Despite how it appears on the surface, being a good developer is not just about writing code and being adept with technical skills.
As a developer working in a software development company, you will be interacting with your peers, maybe as part of a larger team. You will talk to your colleagues (designers, QA engineers, project managers, executives) and other stakeholders.
Soft skills are the game changers here when it comes to completing projects efficiently and effectively and to forming strong professional relationships…
The prime goal of a UI (user interface) designer is to create a good experience for all users, regardless of ability. This becomes even more important when we consider that roughly 285 million people are visually impaired, between 110 million and 190 million adults have significant mobility difficulties, and 360 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss.
As a developer, you should want your website to be accessible, easy to navigate, understandable, and usable by all. This is also reiterated by the founder of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners Lee, who says,
“The power of the Web is in…
Semantic relates to meaning in language or logic. Writing Semantic HTML means that tags are never chosen based on the way they appear in a web browser, instead, they’re chosen based on the importance and structure of the content.
Semantic HTML is the correct use of HTML to reinforce the meaning of content on a web page, rather than merely define its appearance. Semantically correct HTML helps search engines, screen readers, and other user devices determine the significance and context of web content.
Search engines weigh keyword importance by their placement in the HTML hierarchy. For example, keywords enclosed in…
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is one of the most important pillars holding a webpage together. It gives you the power to bring a sense of style and design into a simple HTML layout. From font families and colors to alignment and display, it does it all.
On top of that, it is unarguably one of the simplest and most intuitive languages to work with. After all, what’s easier than being able to change the characteristics of an element through a simple list of properties written almost in pure English?
But despite its deceptively uncomplicated exterior, CSS is an intricate system…
Google Chrome is the most popular and widely used web browser in today's time, and rightfully so. One of the main reasons for this is its extensibility.
Chrome offers a bunch of extensions to help you with various tasks, and as a web developer, you can take advantage of them to increase your productivity and make essential tasks a lot less of a chore.
Although there are a bunch of other extensions available for purposes similar to those listed below, I have tried and tested each of these and have found them to be the most effective and efficient, both…
The Cryptocurrency market on Wednesday saw a massive fall in prices of popular cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB among others putting investors in a frenzy.

Everyone begins their journey with programming somewhere, and if you’ve started on the path, congratulations! You’re already one step ahead to becoming a skilled developer.
Programming gives you the power of writing your vision into something that the computer can execute. If you’re not having fun while doing it, you’re most likely doing something wrong. But don’t worry, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there!
When most people start out with learning their first programming language (or languages, but wait, we’ll come back to that later), there are some common mistakes that they make. …
Do you really not see it?
Or are you too afraid to look?
Beneath the bookshelf of your heart
The musty diary
That you keep shelves apart
Sitting in the corner
A child’s dream
Waiting for you to look
At what you wanted to be
To face and conquer
Moving on uninhibited
After the curve of your smile
Fearless of what may come
Heart beating ever so fast
Fingers tingling with adrenaline
However long it lasts.
A heart so valiant
A will so strong
The belief of another sunrise
When it set,
To make way for the stars
How they shine…
