A front-end developer typically knows user experience design (also called UX Design). There is a lot of research into the psychology of human behavior on the design side of front-end development. In some companies, a designer will do that part, and then a front-end developer will turn that design into code. But I think it’s more fun when you can do both pieces of this puzzle. Seeing your design come to life in code is a beautiful experience.
You will spend a lot of time in CSS and HTML which are fairly easy to understand. New technologies like React, SVG, etc, combined with incredible user experience and design skills will help you become an in-demand programmer.
Before you join a front-end development course, make sure it teaches the following sub-skills:
HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the markup used to create web pages. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is used to design the document you create with HTML and make it look the way you want it to. This is the foundational skill without which you can’t become a front-end developer.
