Learning how to code is best accomplished by solving real-world problems and taking part in real-world projects. Despite the importance of theoretical knowledge, you do not have much chance of progressing without the ability to use it.
I have spent a great deal of time searching and filtering through the vast world of the internet to come up with this list of the 10 best sites to practice your front-end skills. You will reinforce everything you have learned through tutorials and become a more competent front-end developer by using these websites. So let’s get started
1. Ace Front End
Practice makes perfect when preparing for an interview. Often, front-end developers find it difficult to locate good interviewing resources. Ace Front End was formed to solve this problem. With Ace Front End, you will be presented with complete coding challenges and a comprehensive explanation of how to create an effective interview solution. Although you may not be preparing for an interview, you can still use this platform.
3. CSS Battles
While this one is specific to CSS, the gamification system is an excellent way to continue learning, and at the end of some battles, there are prizes to be won.
While the battles on there won’t tell you how to make web layouts, they will definitely help you master some of the more advanced CSS properties.
4. Tree House
5. Front End Mentor
7. Dev challenges
The platform is similar to front-end mentors since you can customize challenges based on their difficulty level, and you can divide challenges further into three groups — responsive web developer, front-end developer, and full-stack developer. As a front-end developer, you can focus on the first two paths and design and develop projects from those categories. Each category contains eight projects. Using Github as the submission tool and giving feedback on other contributors’ submissions is also possible.
8. Style Stage
This platform provides a base HTML file for which you can restyle and submit a different stylesheet. The guidelines require you to follow accessibility rules so you will create not only a project that looks great, but one that is also accessible. Upon submitting your pull request, you will be informed if your submission needs to be changed. You continue to make these changes until your submission passes the requirements, at which point your project will launch. In this platform, you would primarily be developing your CSS skills since you would be working with CSS files.
The platform offers several free challenges to let you test out its features before you commit to its $35/mo plans. Codebyte offers all the tools you’ll need to make that transition to a web development career.
Thank you for reading this article. I hope you have learned a lot of new sites to practice front-end development, which will be useful to you at some point in the future.
