7 GitHub projects essential for every Javascript developer 👨🏽‍💻 🚀

Javascript is so widely adopted that most developers can't avoid it entirely during the course of their careers. Sooner or later, you need to face JS, and when you do, you need to be ready with practical and fundamental concepts of the Javascript programming language.

So today, I want to share 7 amazing GitHub projects that will help you become a better Javascript developer. These GitHub projects are quite popular and can be a go-to resource for anyone looking to learn, and let's face it - Devs are always learning.🤓

So let's get started. 👊

Currently building SigNoz - an open-source application performance monitoring tool. The front-end is built in Typescript and Reactjs.

Check out our GitHub repo👇

SigNoz is an open-source APM. It helps developers monitor their applications & troubleshoot problems, an open-source alternative to DataDog, NewRelic, etc. 🔥 🖥. 👉 Open source Application Performance Monitoring (APM) & Observability tool


Monitor your applications and troubleshoot problems in your deployed applications, an open-source alternative to DataDog, New Relic, etc.

SigNoz helps developers monitor applications and troubleshoot problems in their deployed applications. SigNoz uses distributed tracing to gain visibility into your software stack.

👉 You can see metrics like p99 latency, error rates for your services, external API calls and individual end points.

👉 You can find the root cause of the problem by going to the exact traces which are causing the problem and see detailed flamegraphs of individual request traces.

👉 Run aggregates on trace data to get business relevant metrics

5. Front End interview handbook

⭐ Github stars: 29.5k

This repo promises to make you go from zero to front-end interview hero even if you don't have prior interview experience. And, from the number of stargazers it has, it looks like it delivers on that promise. It has answers to every question in the very famous question bank Front-end Job Interview Questions.

GitHub logo yangshun / front-end-interview-handbook

⚡️ Front End interview preparation materials for busy engineers

Front End Interview Handbook

What is this?

Unlike typical software engineer job interviews, front end job interviews have less emphasis on algorithms and have more questions on intricate knowledge and expertise about the domain — HTML, CSS, JavaScript, just to name a few areas.

While there are some existing resources to help front end developers in preparing for interviews, they aren't as abundant as materials for a software engineer interview. Among the existing resources, probably the most helpful question bank would be Front-end Developer Interview Questions. Unfortunately, I couldn't find many complete and satisfactory answers to these questions online, hence here is my attempt at answering them. Being an open source repository, the project can live on with the support of the community as the state of web evolves.
