mamdouhmoemin profile image Moemin Mamdouh ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป ใƒป3 min read

Building projects and solving real world problems is inarguably one of the best ways you can learn how to code. Theoretical is all good, but without applying the knowledge you learn, you will most likely not progress. We've made a list of 8 websites that can help you get better at frontend development through practice.

Table of Content:

  1. freeCodeCamp
  2. Codewell
  3. CSSBattle
  4. Treehouse
  5. Coderbyte
  6. CodePen Challenges
  7. Javascript30
  8. Frontend Mentor

1. freeCodeCamp

Inarguably one of the best resources to learn web development. Over 7000+ tutorials and tons of challenges to complete along the way to test what you've learnt.

The tracks are straightforward and the best part? It's all free.

2. Codewell

If you want to level up your HTML, CSS, and Javascript skills, Codewell offers real world Figma templates that you can use to improve. You can even share your solutions and receive feedback on either the website or on the growing Slack community. Here are 5 projects to tackle on Codewell.

Codewell challenges include:

  • Figma Template
  • All assets (images, icons, etc)
  • PNG files for desktop, tablet, and mobile views
  • README.md file with the fonts used and how to deploy

3. CSSBattle

This one is specific to CSS, but its gamification system is a great way to track your progress and continue learning, they even give away some merchandise at the end of some battles, which is always a great motivator.

The battles on there aren't necessarily going to tell you how to create web layouts, but they will definitely help you tackle some of the more intermediate CSS properties.

4. Treehouse

At just $25/mo, Treehouse is a great platform to help you learn certain languages like Javascript, or even backend languages like PHP. You can use their in-demand courses which have a wide variety of quizzes and challenges, or go through a track which has a guided curriculum to teach you something specific.

5. Coderbyte

Coderbyte offer:

  • Coding Challenges
  • Interview Kits
  • Courses

They offer free challenges to get a feel for the platform before subscribing to their plans which start at $35/mo. If you're serious about transitioning to a web development career, Codebyte offers you all the tools you need to accomplish that.

6. CodePen Challenges

The great thing about CodePen challenges is that they provide prompts for nearly a variety of languages and technologies. HTML, CSS, Javascript, Flutter, you name it. What's even better is that you get to share your solutions with everyone who's participated in the challenges, give, and receive feedback on your solution.

This may not be a structured way to learn, but looking at other people's code is a great way to get inspired and perhaps learn something you may have not known.

7. Javascript30

A 30 day vanilla JS coding challenge by Wes Bos. You get to build clocks, drum kits, and so much more using just Javascript. It's also free, so there's no excuse to not sign up and get started right away!

8. Frontend Mentor

I like how Codwell didn't put themselves number 1 on the list.
Humility is a good thing.
