10 Awesome Github Repositories Every Web Developer Should Know.

1. Awesome

Without a doubt, Awesome is the most popular repositories for everything from software development to hardware to business. It currently has over 123,000 stars on Github, and one could spend days (or nights) browsing it. If I want to learn something new, it’s my one-stop shop.

2. List of (Advanced) JavaScript Questions

3. JavaScript Algorithms and Data Structures

JavaScript Algorithms (59,500 stars) has a ton of JavaScript-based examples of both common and uncommon algorithms and data structures. Because the examples are classified as beginner or intermediate, the framework is excellent. So whether you’re interested in security, sorting, graphs, or machine learning (among other topics), you’ll find something to your liking.

9. Big List of Naughty Strings

You can put as much effort into testing your code and programs as you want, but when real people are involved, believe me when I say that they will do things you never imagined, especially when it comes to user input. This repository (34,100 stars) has a long list of Strings that have been known to cause problems when used as input. So, whether you’re looking to impress your QA pals or use it to test your program, this may be quite beneficial!

10. Awesome First PR Opportunities

The last repository I’d like to suggest is excellent for getting started with Open Source. Contributing to OSS is a fantastic opportunity to become engaged in the community, build your portfolio, try new things, improve your programming skills, and perhaps find a new job. But, as I’ve learned from personal experience, getting started is difficult. This repository contains a list of Open Source projects with beginner-friendly issues that you can work on. It aided me in getting started with OSS and should do the same for you!
