What is \/r/frontend?
/r/frontend is a subreddit for front end web developers who want to move the web forward or want to learn how. If you're looking to find or share the latest and greatest tips, links, thoughts, and discussions on the world of front web development, this is the place to do it.
Here's the kinds of things you'll find (and should post about) here:
- HTML5 APIs and elements
- CSS/SCSS/LESS/etc. frameworks/tools/management
- Design workflow and prototyping tools
- UI/UE/UX examples and discussion
- Neat new stuff like canvas, web sockets/workers, audio, etc.
- Responsive/mobile design and optimization
- Page-load performance optimization and perceived speed
- Web-focused application architecture and development
- Analytics and data visualization
- Asset management and deployment
- Automation and build tools
- Accessibility best practices
- Front-end office/company culture
- ... and anything else that probably fits!
What \/r/frontend isn't
/r/frontend is a subreddit primarily geared towards professionals working in the field or hobbyists who want to stay in the know. With that said, /r/frontend is not:
- A place for you to advertise your product/service/platform (unless it's relevant, useful, and good -- to be decided by the community)
- A job posting board
- A meme/rage/humor board (but instructive and informative posts that happen to be humorous are encouraged)
- A place to ask basic career questions (see /r/cscareerquestions)
- A place to complain or downvote languages, frameworks, or technologies you don't like
- More "not"s to come...
The web is growing fast
Nowadays, the field of front end development is evolving at such a rapid pace that sometimes it's difficult to say what is frontend and what isn't. Therefore, some lenience is allowed in the type of posts that may seem more back-end oriented so long as their emphasis seems to be in the spirit of the subreddit.
You can find a list of useful sites and resources including blogs, social media sites, utilities, guides, tutorials, newsletters, tools, and more in our /r/frontend wiki.
