Frontend Development Roadmap

04. Your Frontend Projects should be showcased in a Portfolio.

You can practice developing stuff to retain notions, and you can practice by developing stuff. This “stuff” will be more useful if it helps you further your goal toward becoming a successful front-end developer.
