re: How do web developers/freelancers build websites in time? VIEW POST


I've only ever worked on personal websites or sites for assignements and I'm not heading into Web developpement (at least for now) so take this with a grain of salt.

But even with little experience I've been able to recycle parts of projects because they were :

  • Using the same framework
  • Doing similar actions
  • Used for an intranet where an original design was not required

I'm very disorganized IRL but try to have healthy/organized developpement environments and coding habits. As much as possible I try to keep my code modular so that I can reuse parts that I feel can have more than one use.

The most concrete example would be user sign up/sign in/sign out functions. I keep databases different and have different table names and column names for each project but the functionnalities are the same so I don't have to write it from scratch each and every time !

I end up saving quite a lot of time on both the conception and the implementation phases.

Another thing is that by force of habit you'll be able to do more things faster so I guess practice is key.
