Writing the framework:

If by any chance you run into a script problem or selecting certain issue on css, the very 1st thing you should do is to consult some development related tool.

Moreover, the basic development tips might be referred as slow by today’s standard. The creators or developers that are using such methods got the idea of crafting also.

Say no to browsers:

If you want to develop CSS framework and some JavaScript, it is common and fair to stay back and forth between editing and browsing position. This will work as you check your staff working. Instead of this try some other exercises. Code the whole web framework and don’t check it in the browser until or unless you are sure that you have done the work. This maintains your focus all the time on the project. This will help you visualize the codes you created.

Using code generator:

This trick is the most important. It is preferred that avoid the code generators. There are many CSS generators, button creators, and many more tools which will help you write down the CSS quickly.

    Great! Practical knowledge and exposure are what I consider the stepping-stones in order to become a perfect coder. Clear concepts of programming, good logical reasoning and mathematics in the educational background are something that are counted among the prerequisites of a good programmer. Rest every programmer learns with time and new projects on which he works, as there is continuous scope of improvement every now n’ then.
