Learn HTML and CSS.
The first step to becoming a front end developer is learning HTML and CSS. These are the building blocks of a webpage, which you can use to style your website’s content.
HTML is the structure of a webpage, while CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. These two things work together to make sure that everything on your site looks good—both visually and functionally!
The [official] website has tutorials on how to build websites with different frameworks and libraries. You can also find code examples here under each framework or library section that show you how everything works together in real life situations.
There are lots of online courses available on Udemy where they teach you everything from beginning level up until advanced topics such as ReactJS/Redux
Learn Git and Github.
Git is a version control system, which means it allows you to track changes made in your files over time. It’s used by many open source projects, including the Linux kernel and PHP. GitHub is a website for hosting Git repositories. You can use GitHub to manage code for free if you have an account with them (it’s free!), but if not then there are other options out there that may work better: Bitbucket or Gitlab both offer paid plans but they’re still cheaper than paying per month at most big companies like Google and Facebook!
Practice makes perfect.
If you want to become a front end developer, then it’s essential that you practice as much as possible. There are many ways of practicing and there are no wrong ways or wrong times for practicing:
Try building a website from scratch. You can use the official [Bootstrap](https://getbootstrap.com/) framework or something else if your project requires some other libraries and tools than Bootstrap has in its official repositories (like Foundation 5).
Designing websites is also a great way of learning how things work together under the hood when it comes down to building websites using HTML5/CSS3/JS/jQuery etc., which is what front end developers do all day long!
Apply to companies!
Now that you’ve got a fair idea of what it takes to be a front end developer, it’s time to start applying for jobs.
If you’re serious about becoming a front end developer and want to get started as soon as possible, there are some things you should keep in mind when applying for jobs:
Make sure that the company is hiring! If they aren’t hiring right now, then they probably won’t be able to help with your career goals anyway (which isn’t necessarily bad). Companies will often post job openings on their websites or social media channels so that people can apply directly from their website—if no such information exists yet for this particular company or industry type then try searching Google for “company X” where X is any name relevant to what kind of job opportunities exist within its walls (eBay? Google?).
Always check back regularly because sometimes companies change their minds about whether certain positions are open or not; it happens all too frequently! You don’t want this happening again by waiting too long before trying again instead just make sure everything checks out first before sending off any applications next time around.”
