    10 Videos every web developer should watch

    Learning how to become a web developer takes time.

    There is a tremendous amount of information that you need to understand before you can call yourself a web developer. Luckily there is no shortage of freely available information on the internet. I have collected a few videos that I think every web developer should watch at least once.

    Javascript
    Every web developer should know Javascript back to front. This lecture series by Douglas Crockford is a fantastic starting point. You will still need to practice coding but these videos should give you a solid foundation.







    Performance
    Ilya Grigorik breaks down what it takes to build a mobile site that breaks the 1000ms time to glass barrier.

    Tooling
    In recent years a whole host of tools geared at making front end developers more productive have hit the market. The right set of build, packaging and scaffolding tools will allow you to handle more complex projects with much less overhead.

    Design
    People have come to expect exceptional quality in both visual and interaction design. In this video Alex Faaborg, Christian Robertson from Google give you an advanced crash course in interactive and visual design.

    Happy coding!
