Learning the technical stuff when trying to become a developer is not easy, but at least it’s pretty straightforward. The tutorials are there, books are readily available, and of course, the almighty king google is there to assist you.
But developers must consistently also develop their non-technical skills to get promoted or even get into top companies. There is more than just coding that good developers must-have. Developers must also focus on their soft skills.
This post will discuss no technical skills or skills other than coding that every developer must turn their focus over.

VS Code is one of the most popular and widely used code editor. It comes packed with lots of features that are free in comparison to other editors. You can download extensions on VS code, which add another dimension of incredible features.
I have listed some of my favorite VS code extensions, without which I cannot live.
Please note that there is no ranking involved. Each extension is impressive in itself. The last one and the first are equal.
I am sure you will leave with a new extension that will make your work easier.

I made lots of mistakes while learning to code, actually terrible ones. I thought, why not warn everyone before they make the same. I am sure this will help you get on the fast track towards success.
When I started to learn to program, I spent too much time learning different programming languages and frameworks at once. I spent a week with one technology and language, learning its basics and another the next week. I just kept on jumping from one thing to another.
I bet many have and will commit this same mistake.
Now I realise that was a…
Google is a powerful tool, but you’re missing out on a lot of that power if you simply type words into it. Today, we will remove the training wheels and unleash Google's true potential that you have not seen before.
We all type phrases into Google, then it shows results, and we search through them. This is the incorrect way — or rather inefficient use of mighty Google.
But why is just typing words into Google not that great?
On average, over 3.8 million searches are being made every minute. Google has the difficult task of catering to all these…
We all face this serious issue, we don't get clients. Yes we are talented, yes we are hardworking, and yes we know our stuff quite well, but still, something is fishy.
Is web development saturated? Are there no projects left for us? Are we doomed?
I hear many new developers or even experienced ones complaining that they aren't getting clients regularly.
Where does the problem actually lie? Arent, there any jobs/projects left?
Yes, there are jobs available and in plenty.
Believe it or not many companies struggle to find suitable employees. They are always in hunt for talented individuals.
Should I plan this project or dive straight into coding? Should I use this plugin or that library? Should I ask for help or figure it out myself?
Every developer faces such questions every day, and most of the time, make wrong ❌ decisions, and I was no different.
That all changed when I started implementing the below points into my routine.
The bad and at the same time, the beauty of front-end development is that it’s moving forward very fast. If you don’t keep up with the swift changes, your skills can become very quickly outdated.
On our way to success, we focus on doing things, our mindset is wired that way, do more to succeed but we neglect the power of not doing anything.
In life you don't have to be constantly developing new ideas, solving problems, and getting things done.
Taking a step back periodically can be remarkably important and rewarding and surprisingly make you more productive.
In this post, we will discuss activities that will recharge you and prepare you for the grind and hustle of the weekend. I bet you will be unstoppable the next weekend.

“Successful people aren’t born that way. They become successful by establishing the habit of doing things unsuccessful people don’t like to do.”
―William Makepeace Thackeray
Have a clear understanding of what you need to get done. Don’t plan it in detail; know what the next actions are.
Just keep a log in which list out things that you need to get done. When I started as a developer, I had difficulty in accomplishing things. …
Web developers make millions of decisions while doing 10 other things at that same time. Each decision can waste your valuable time or save.
We need to be effective at our tasks and not burned out. A good developer is efficient in his/her tasks.
One way of being effective is to have the best tools by your side, tools that save your time, and gets things done in the most efficient manner.
Chrome extensions are just one of many tools that can be super useful. Below is a list of the best extensions that I use on a regular basis…
