This list is built upon the sharing of the whole community this week! We hope you like it!
- Do you have what it takes to be a Front-end Developer? Recently I began looking at job postings calling for front end developers. I felt pretty confident with the skills I acquired over the last year and a half. That_is _until I looked over some of these listings. For me, the shocking thing was how much some of these front end job descriptions varied.

- Git - the simple guide Just a simple guide for getting started with git. no deep shit ;-)
- Git for Designers How it works When you use Git, your project lives in a repository. Every project is a repository, and every repository has a different history - basically, a timeline of every change you saved in it. However, Git doesn't save changes to the history automatically. To save a change to your history, you need to commit your changes.
CSS & Sass
- Why I becoming Sassy When it comes to CSS preprocessing, there is always someone asking which should they pick. This yields an avalanche of discussion between people fiercely defending their favorite one just like a Lilliputian would definitely not agree with a Blefuscuian’s penchant for breaking their boiled eggs on the larger end. Actually, it all boils down (no pun intended) to personal preferences. However, there are some subtle and not-that-subtle features in Sass that led me into it, forsaking my old friend LESS.
- [Medium’s CSS is actually pretty f*ing good.](https://medium.com/@fat/mediums-css-is-actually-pretty-fucking-good-b8e2a6c78b06#.vtyul8bya)** I always believe that to be the best, you have to smell like the best, dress like the best, act like the best. When you throw your trash in the garbage can, it has to be better than anybody else who ever threw trash in the garbage can.
- Mixins Better for Performance When it comes to preprocessors, one of the most frequent questions I’m asked is
Mixins or?I’ve always been quite vocal about this topic, and I firmly believe you should avoid
@extendfor a number of reasons.
- Position a child div relative to parent container in CSS One of the common CSS techniques that can be a bit tricky at first is being able to absolutely position a child div element within a parent div container, relative to the parent. There are numerous scenarios where you might require this sort of positioning for div and other HTML elements.
- Atomic Design Pattern Atomic design is a methodology for crafting effective design systems
- BEM your CSS The more levels your selector has, the more time it takes to reach your element and can apply the style. The more levels your selector has, the more difficult it is to debug.
- Advice to budding front-end developers I receive a lot of email from younger/junior developers asking me for advice on how to get into the industry, how to make a name for themselves, and how to make it as a professional front-end developer.
