As web developers, it is paramount that we educate ourselves on the latest techniques, trends, software, and coding. If you don’t, you will not achieve being an in demand designer/developer. Your skills will fall behind, and it will reflect in the websites you build. As much as we all like to think we are in some big happy family of designers and developers, we are all competing with each other.
Just keeping up is what everyone else is doing, so how do we get ahead?
Being in web development means you have to be constantly learning. There is no end, and the minute you stop you might as well call it quits. The good thing is, if you love web development the learning process can be fun. Only you can motivate yourself to do it though, and the ones that do, are the ones that are on top. We don’t want to just keep up with the next person, we want to get ahead and stay there. Now go and do it!
