18 Useful GitHub Repositories Every Developer Should Bookmark πŸ‘πŸ’―

I often get asked what resources and tips I would recommend for web developers. I decided to curate a list of some of the most useful GitHub repositories I have come across.

The main criteria for curating was practical usability, so these repositories include everything from learning resources and roadmaps to best practices, system designs, and tools.

Hopefully, this will help as many developers as possible and everyone will find something useful to improve their skills and workflow to create awesome projects in the future.
