Web Coding and Development Cheat Sheet

One of the handiest features of web coding and development is that once you’ve learned a few basics, you can apply those basics to any project. A good example is the underlying structure of a page, which uses the same set of standard HTML tags, no matter how large or small the project. It’s also worth your time to learn how selectors work, because you use them to speed up your work both when you’re writing CSS rules and when you’re writing jQuery code. Errors, too, are a fact of web coding life, so understanding the most common errors can help you debug your code faster and get back to more creative pursuits.
