How to keep up with Web technology? Overcoming the challenges with learning

It is a challenge for the Web developers always, since they need to read, practice and deliver all the time. You may say life if full of learning, and everyone has to learn. But, what you learn today becomes out dated within a year, or sometimes even within few months in web technology and this becomes a real challenge.

In this Presentation Chris Coyier is trying to arrive for a decent answer. We thought it should be shared in our blog too.
 

You can see Chris shared some useful links at the end, unfortunately, they aren’t clickable. But Don’t worry, we have given them below as links that you can enjoy.

Writing a content for a website is entirely a different thing to normal writing. It involves plenty of creative ideas and more importantly it should contain related keywords which is most used by the visitor. Now let us see why you should avoid duplicating the content?
