👩🎨 What's New In Frontend? — Weekly Picks #135
🌟 This week is really all about front-end! We present new features in Chrome, VS Code extensions, cool codepens, and more. As always, all posts were ranked by daily.dev community. Shout out to all the authors. 👏
So, let's get it started.
1️⃣ 5 Underrated Apps for Programmers You Should Use Right Now

2️⃣ 🔥 What's Hot in Web Development? — Weekly Picks #134
3️⃣ Top 10 Visual Studio Extensions in 2020
We, developers, just love these top VS Code extensions lists. This week we have another list with pretty awesome extensions. My favorite from this list is probably "Import Cost" 👾
4️⃣ Don't Call Yourself a Front-End Developer
The author presents his thinking that front-end developers have a "perception-problem". They are often underestimated due to what front-end development used to be. I'm not sure I agree with him, but it's definitely an interesting piece.🤔
5️⃣ Why Low-Code Will Never Replace Developers
🤖 Low-code platforms are growing fast, and democratizing capabilities that used to be exclusive to developers. Platforms such as Wix and Webflow for website building and many others. Worry not, the author explains that professional skills are still very much needed.

Have you ever wondered who came up with HTML, HTTP and URI? This post covers briefly the history and evolution of web standards as we know them today. 📜
