DevDum! Code Smarter. Not Harder.

DevDum Header Image

Learning to code takes time...a lot of time. I'm talking hours and hours in front of a computer researching: languages, libraries, frameworks, theories, methods, principles, paradigms, packages, front-end, back-end, classes, functions, arrays, loops, variables, objects, elements, iterators, algorithms, & abbreviations: html, css, js, json, dom, api, mvc, mvp, oop, orm, pwa, sql, npm, git, cli...and the list goes on.

If you're like me...then you don't have all the time in the world to devote to web development. The good news is you don't have to be an expert engineer to build a solid website or application anymore...just expect to spend a few late nights banging your head against the keyboard.

Part of being a good developer is just knowing where to look, and having the right resources at your fingertips to help you: packages, components, widgets, wizards, addons, extensions, optimizers, plugins, scrapers, converters, generators, templates, boilerplates, get the idea!

Do your best to learn the fundamentals and understand the core principles, but don't worry about being the smartest developer in the room. The dev community runs deep and there is a lot to explore. The best way to learn web development is by coding. DevDum! will save you countless hours searching the web, so you can focus on developing whatever crazy idea you've got in your head. Just remember the DevDum! rule of thumb: Code Smarter. Not Harder.

Be sure to take advantage of all the free & open source tools available on the internet: code snippets, cheat sheets, static websites, even fully developed applications ready to deploy. You'll be surprised what you can find, and what's already been built for you to use. Who may even end up contributing your own code to the dev community someday!

DevDum! contains all the resources needed for developing a fullstack web application. Hopefully, it saves you some of the headache along the way. Less searching more learning with 200+ resources for web's a no brainer!

Visit the DevDum! website and give the repo a ⭐ on Github if you find the resources useful. Special thanks to all the developers, engineers, programmers, techies, awesome listers, open sourcers, and product hunters out there!
