Building Better Web Apps From the Inside Out

Low angle shot of an illuminated keyboardHaphazard would be the best word to describe my web development abilities when I started out a little over a year and a half ago. My code was disorganized and poorly named. I had barely even heard of usability. I was uploading every small change during development to my shared server. I could go on and on. The point is that had no idea HOW to properly develop a web site even though I had become fairly comfortable with the programming languages I was using. By all means, I’m still not an expert in web development, but the following is what I’ve learned so far on coding smarter, streamlining your workflow, and increasing usability.

Coding Smarter

Streamlining Your Workflow

Increasing Usability

Again, the list above is not intended to be a complete, but rather various tidbits I’ve gathered along the way. Many of them I learned from reading the following books and I highly recommend them to anyone who’s currently making their way into web development.
