How to Keep Up with the Front-End Industry

Here are some tips while staying up-to-date with any large knowledge set, like programming, the news, or anything!

  • Watch out for overwhelm and take a break if needed
  • Recognize you can't know everything
  • Share what you're learning with coworkers and friends
  • Follow the people/groups that make you excited about the topic
  • Contribute to the conversation: write blog posts, Tweet, or record podcasts

  • Automate where possible (Feedly and Pocket Casts help me)
