Front-End Development can be a bit overwhelming at first. You have to look at the designs, and then making those designs come to reality is not an easy job. I have faced imposter syndrome many times during my career, and even to this day, I feel the same thing. However, it is part of learning and growing. To tackle this, I follow IAADR. Now, you must be wondering what the hell IAADR is. It's short for the approach:
It starts with inspiration. You can begin by exploring the landing pages of websites that excite you. If you don't know where to start, you can visit websites that curate collections of beautiful websites. Here are some of them:
Try to engage with the design and look at the different aspects of the user interface (UI) and how everything comes alive. It is crucial to do this because it will give you inspiration to create something similar in the future, as it will be stored in your memory.
Now, you need to analyze how this website is functioning. Take note of the colors being used and observe how the animations come alive. Consider why there is a specific amount of spacing between the heading and paragraph. Pay attention to the color palette employed by this website. Ask yourself these questions and attempt to find answers by inspecting the website.
Now, the question arises: How can I accomplish this? How can I bring this design to life? How can I incorporate the animation? How can I create a navigation menu similar to this one? that’s Deconstruction.
as the name suggest, now you have to start working on reconstructing the question your asked yourself in the step above using code, now this will involve your own critical thinking, finding stuff related to that on internet, using ChatGPT etc.
By following the IAADR approach and breaking down the steps into manageable tasks, you'll gradually develop your front-end development skills and create remarkable user experiences. Embrace the journey of exploration, learning, and growth as you unleash your creativity in the world of front-end development.
