For today’s post I searched the web for sites that had content that would make a difference to web designers and developers. I looked for sites with well-written, clear, and substantial articles and for content that discussed CMS’s such as WordPress, tools such as Photoshop, tutorials for code such as CSS and HTML, thoughts on user experience (UX) and user interfaces (UI), tips, tricks, resources, and freebies.
In today’s post we’ll have a look at the 5 best blogs and websites for web designers and developers.
