Hello guys, one of my readers asked me a couple of days ago - would you mind putting a weekly list for web development articles just like you have done for Java and Algorithms? Well, I was more than happy to look into her request because I also like to read Web Development articles, so it's not really tough for me to suggest some worth reading articles to you guys.
Btw, this list is no means an exhaustive list and I would love to see some action from you guys. If you have a web development article, within Medium or outside medium, feel free to share with us. I would love to read them.
Without wasting any more of your time, here is my list of 10 worth reading articles on Web Development this weekend:
The [Aphinya Dechalert] is my discovery of last week, I somehow stumble on this article and just become a fan of her writing. She is a superb writer and her knowledge of Angular, React and Web Development is just awesome.
From Angular God to learning React JS in 2 nights, I have read many of her story in last a couple of days and this one is my favorite one. If you are using Angular or learning Angular, this is the must-read article for you.
The 2019 Web Developer (Frontend + Backed) RoadMap by javinpaul
My Illustration of the famous Web Developer RoadMap by Kamran Ahmed, which has inspired many web developers since last year. A definite guide if you are learning Web Development in 2019 and 2020.
I have also shared a lot of useful courses and links in this article, but if you have to choose just one resource to start your journey on Web development, there is nothing better than The Web Developer Bootcamp online course by @ColtSteele on Udemy. This is simply an awesome resource and I keep looking back to the course even now.
And, by any chance, if you somehow don't connect to The Colt's style of teaching (very unlikely), you should check out my another favorite The Complete 2019 Web Development Bootcamp by [Angela Yu]

TDD Changed My Life by Eric Elliott
This is one discipline which has changed the lives of so many developers and I strongly recommend to everyone who codes. It seems daunting for the first time but as you learn and grow in experience, TDD will not only save a lot of time but also produce better quality code. This article is an awesome story and I strongly suggest every coder read it.
And, if you love TDD or want to learn more about it. I also highly recommend the classic Test Driven book I have read so many books on TDD and testing but no one comes close to this. It's just amazing.
If you want to buy, here is the link: Test Driven: TDD and Acceptance TDD for Java Developers
