10+ Github Repositories You Should Know as a Developer

Hello, everyone! Today, we'll go through some great repositories that every developer should be aware of.

Following an extensive investigation, I discovered several excellent repositories that might help you grow as a developer; stay tuned as I will be sharing them soon.

1. Web Developer RoadMap

The web developer roadmap repository can find a path for frontend, backend, and dev ops developers. The goal of these roadmaps is to give you a sense of the landscape and help you decide what to learn next if you're stumped. This repository includes three graphs that show you precisely what each path entails and which abilities are required. Frontend, backend, and dev-ops are the paths described in this repository.

3. Awesome Cheatsheets

Cheatsheets are handy. Cheatsheets are something that every developer has used at least once. Especially when you're studying anything new, such as a programming language or framework, fortunately, you won't have to make your cheatsheets because the incredible cheatsheets library has you covered.

🤔 Why Awesome-Cheatsheets?

I usually make a cheat sheet when I want to improve my skills in a programming language, a framework or a development tool. I started doing these kinds of things a long time ago on Gist. To better keep track of the history and to let people contribute, I re-organized all of them into this single repository. Most of the content is coming from official documentation and some books I have read.

Feel free to take a look. You might learn new things. They have been designed to provide a quick way to assess your knowledge and to save you time.
